Hi All !

I've been thinking of late that we should have a FAQ/Basic guide for ZF10/15/20's like the FZ1/Z2 info guide we already have. This way new and old users can quickly refer to the FAQ for issues such as noise, IOS settings, spot or centre focusing, using OIS etc instead of having to trawl through all old previous posts or create new posts and thus reduce "redudant" posts.

I was thinking that the FAQ would just consist of:

(i) Basic Camera Settings - ISO settings, white point, spot or centre metering, exposure, etc
(ii) Adapters, convertor lens and filters
(iii) External Flash - Flash types.
(iv) Common Problems and how to fix them (not sure on this one ?) - such as lens cloths and lens pens, camera care.

If they want anything thats missing or if you require more detailed information we can just include the links to Shene's and David Fongs FZ10 user guides.

http://www.users.bigpond.com/vkelim/DMCFZ10/index.html

and Shene's

I'd appreciate your feedback.

Cheers

Harj

Hey thats cool. I hadn't seen that before and what I don;t really want to do is replicate, replicate, replicate as thats just a complete waste of time. I do however think just a basic simple list of things that you can see instantly would be helpful in addition to all of the relevant links that Rezajune's listed.

I don't yet own an FZ anything but hope to this year sometime. However, I endorse your FAQ as a great idea and look forward to having it available when I finally get my FZ20. I know nothing about how it might be done but can Steve's Forum incorporate the previous postings or do you begin anew? Sorry, if this newbie is asking a silly question.

Thanks for the support. I'm not sure on the exact format as yet but ideally I would just like a few paragraphs, perhaps bullet pointed and below that all of the links that Rezajune had listed in his post.

Need to make an apology to NickTrop as this was supposed to be team effort open to all and not a solo thing, and I'm afraid I've given the impression that its a personal pet project.

What do you think of having something like this or link to it to help folks determine how their monitors look?

Here's a link for those who would like to download a Hi Res copy. It's great for printing out on your printer and then comparing that to what you see on your monitor.:arrow:
