Hello modifierwong.

Great review. Picked up the DMC TZ5 the other day. LOVE the camera, i love the solution to turning off the AF in the camera for the Video. That is such a problem with the focusing. But my problem is , HOW? I have all these AF settings in the menu and no option to turn it off. If you could please help. Thank you

When in Video Mode, push "SET"then go to page #2 and here it is, "Continuous AF" and you can turn it OFF

Hello people,
exellent reviews,but I am an amateur and I want to buy this camera,and I would like to ask some basic questions

1. Is it true that this camera has 15 min limit video? or 2 gb max recording?
Is it the case with all other camera?

2. As I understood,pictures captured at night have noise due to ISO.
Does this refer only to shots in Auto mode without flash?
I guess when flash activates pictures are better? Or if I set iso to higher?
Can someone please explain how can pictures come out with less noise at night

Thanks, regards

Hal,
In case you were still wondering, there IS a 2GB recording limit.
And about the noise in the night shots, you can adjust enough settings to reduce it in normal picture mode by forcing the flash on and setting the iso manually.

AND...the TZ5's screen is perfectly visible in bright daylight and doesn't get washed out like some other cameras.
