Over the weekend I noticed that my FZ10's lens would stick if I was zooming back from 8x zoom it would just freeze completely and then after a 10 sec wait would wakeup and then work. Has any one else had this problem - happened twice so I'm hoping its not on the way out.

Cheers

1. Epping Forest. F2.8 1/13s. I tried the same shot with the E1 and it would either underexpose or overexpose the shot whether as the FZ nailed it.


2. A wee bug:



3. Tree bark from the E1.

you have a deft eye for an image HarjTT

just a thought
check out the battery connections, try to see there is positive contect
and have a look around for white corrosive material on connections
does the battery life seem normal between charges ?

You nailed them all but #1 is my favorite. It just puts me there. I have not had the problem you are having with your camera and also hope it's not on it's way out. How many shots have you taken with it? I wonder if it would be econimacally feasible to have it repaired. You do so well with the FZ10 it would be ashamed to lose it.

I like Picture #3 the best. About zoom problem to you have an adapter and UV on the camera all the time? In not you may have picked up grime in the mechanicals try cleaning them out with a high powered air gun.

Hi jerry

I never thought about the adapter and the UV filter. I'll have to pick up an air gun and then give it a go.

Thanks for the comments Don, Jerry, DOnna and Riley,



Cheers

Nice pictures as usual Harjtt. Can understand the difficulty of taking the first one, but you made an excellent job of it

thats a similar experience that I have with my Oly C7070 HarjTT, usually the best I can do is underexpose and correct it later, but by now you know all that; its dam annoying. ESP seems to handle it better than multi mode.

I like the idea that the FZ handles it better because I live in hope that the LC-1 I just bought will elliminate it as a shooting issue. With the coming summer down here the limited exposure range becomes an all too common experience

Hi Riley

You made a really fab choice on the LC1. As a camera its head and shoulders above every other digicam out there for IQ and my what a lens! Its a cam that I would still buy at the drop of a hat and is becoming a real collectors items. I think it would easily nail the Epping Forest shot and do a much better job than the FZ10. I'm still learning how to meter using the E1 and shots that the FZ would n't have any issues with the E1 does there has to be something that I'm doing wrong.

When you get the LC1 you'll have a real blast so post some pics !!

Cheers

HarjTT
