It looks as if you made the right choice, you've taken some very nice images so far.

Thanks guys!

The whole fiddling with settings thing is pretty addictive, trying to get the best out of your shots!

I'd still like to here from others with the TZ10/SZ7 what their ideal settings are if possible?

Congratulations on your new camera and thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. Since you were asking for ideal settings of the camera I could sent you to one of our forums here in Germany where they do an excellent job on the matter. However, there might be a bit of a language problem unless you happen to be able to read my native language, I am afraid. But I will attach the link for one of the forum here anyway http://www.dslr-forum.de/showthread.php?t=666875

Sadly my TZ10 just died a few days ago and to keep yours in good working condition I may recommend getting the Panasonic Marine Case for it even when you are using it on land. Otherwise you are maybe likely to be in my situation as I described in my thread http://forums.steves-digicams.com/panasonic-leica/190536-panasonic-tz10-zs-7-warranty-issues.html.. However, since you are living in Australia, you might be able to cope better with "bad enviromental conditions" which caused mine to die instantly.

Regards

Frank

Just a quick question guys..

Does everyone else get that yellow exclamation mark when they shut the camera down?

Hmm theres's nothing wrong with my camera, perhaps it's just a warning that the camera is in the process of shutting down? I'm on firmware 1.2.

Well I worked it out, the camera was in service mode lol! I managed to get it out of it by following the instructions in the TZ10 service manual:

https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=d4c92...1B4314D%21985#

Specifically:

Display the "INITIAL SETTINGS" menu:
Note: If the unit is other than PROGRAM AE mode, it does not display the initial settings menu.
While keep pressing MENU/SET and "RIGHT of Cursor button" simultaneously, turn the Power off. The "INITIAL SETTINGS" menu is displayed.



Set the model suffix at "INITIAL SETTINGS":
Press the "RIGHT of Cursor buttons".
The only set area is displayed. Press the "RIGHT of Cursor buttons" after confirmation.
(The unit is powered off automatically.)



CONFIRMATION:
Confirm the display of "PLEASE SET THE CLOCK" in concerned language when the unit is turned on again. When the unit is connected to PC with USB cable, it is detected as removable media.

My shut down screen now shows 'Lumix'.
