gsellis, so yours DOES? update slower when pointing at a darker area?

Id say it was like 30fps when outside or bight inside, and more like 15 fps when darker.

I checked my FZ30 last night and noticed the same thing happening. Personally I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Can someone please explain what is meant by the screen "updating" slower or faster when panning the camera? What effect are you seeing in the EVF?

screen updating means, Frames per second

1 frame= 1 static image

24 frames per sec is like TV

5 frames per second , is like the very old black and white movies.

so what im saying is i get tv like movement in light conditions, and its more jerky when theres less light.

evf or screen, both the same

Simon

Thanks for trying to educate me, but either I'm dim or the lighting's dim! :-)

You hold the camera up in bright light, look through the EVF, don't fire the shutter (correct?), pan slowly round to the left. You see exactly what you see in an optical viewfinder. The image passes slowly and smoothly by. You do the same in dull light, and there's no difference. What am I doing wrong?

You're not talking about refresh rate of the EVF when the shutter is fired in bright v dull light are you? In which case why would it be necessary to pan the camera?

If I can't see the wood for the trees after this post, I may need to pm you.

i cant explain it any clearer than that im afraid. HELPPPPPP :?

Yes the refresh rate (effectively) is faster in normal light.

yes, dont fire the shutter for ANY of this topic.

If you pan the camera round , the preview screens (LCD or EVF) show what ya gonna take a pic of, right?



no,... i cant explain it any more, , im done in lol

Well, thanks for trying, Simon. You'll be glad (?) to know that 'my problem' is solved now. It's all down to the speed of panning. The faster the panning, the more noticeable is the effect.

I pulled the curtains and gave it another try. With the v e r y v e r y s l o w pan I was giving it yesterday, and the curtains open, I say again - no noticeable difference between that and the same pan with the curtains closed. Speed up the pan, and of course the effect is there for the reasons stated by Leberwurstsaft.

Obviously your slow pan is faster than mine. My camera is no different from yours then. We can all now rest content. :-)
