Hi folks,

I'm completely new to Panasonic and have just received my FZ5 today. It is at home charging as I type here at work, eager to get home and start using it!

I found this site yesterday so apologies for any lack of etiquette in my post.

I'd just like to say hi really and thanks to all you guys who have already provided an excellent source of info regarding lense adapters, lenses and filters via past posting - it has been a real help.

I'll perhaps post a few shots after the weekend. Thanks again

Marcus

Welcome and congrats on the new camera. You might want to go the the top of the Panasonic forum and look at the Sticky post called FZ10 Users Guide as most of this will also apply to your FZ5. Enjoy taking :|

Hi and Welcome to the forum! Like yourself, I am a newbie to the digital camera scene. I just bought a Fujifilm Finepix F10 as a pocket camera (the reviews have been amazing), and I am also looking for a nice 10-12x zoom camera. I am looking at the Panasonic FZ5 and FZ20. I will be eager to hear how you like the FZ5 and to see some of your pics.

I have had my new FZ5 for about 6 weeks, and people are amazed at how much my photography (mostly emailed stuff to family) has improved :? I don't tell them It's because I got a much better camera!

Thanks for the response folks.

I think you are right rcci, I will download the manual from the sticky post as upon reading over mine last night, it appears to be a little......odly presentated shall we say!

I think the camera menu's and settings appear to be intuitive so it shouldn't be too much of a problem to get used to.

I've not had chance to get out and take any photgraphs as yet but hopefully the weekend will provide opportunity.

As for the camera being able to inprove MY photography....I think I have a long way to go yet!!!!
