[suP]I just received my FZ10 a few days ago (my first digital camera), and noticed that when I set the white balance, picture (sharpness, contrast,saturation) or other adjustmentsto something other than their original settings, and turn the camera off, the settings return to theirdefaults when I turn the camera on again. Is this normal? I'm doing a lot of experimenting, but I would have thoughtthat settings would be saved. I searched the forum but couldn't find an answer to this question.[/suP]

[suP]Thanks for the help![/suP]

No, this is not normal, did you keep the battery in your camera? If it only happens when your battery has been removed from your camera for charging you may have a defective back-up battery on your cameras' mainboard.

ThanksKlaasfor the quick response. Yes, I have a fully charged battery in the camera the entire time. Could it mean my camera is defective? Could it possibly mean that the backup battery is bad? I wouldn't think the backup would be used with the regular battery still in the camera.

Yes, I think it's defective. I thought the back-up battery might not have been sufficientlycharged as your camera is new but with the battery in place that can't be the problem I think.

You may want to ask Panasonic customer service about this. Alittle whileago there was a firmware change. Perhaps the newer release does as you described. I don't know if this is the case or not, but it's worth asking.

Guerito -

Thanks for the suggestion, but I did discuss this with Panasonic Bob, and he didn't believe this was normal either. I may either have to return the camera, or get it serviced.
