Re: DMC FZ-7 Zoom

Check the makers website- they will give you an estimate- which I guess will be nearly as much a buying a new camera . Thats the way it goes.

Sounds like the zoom switch is broken. Repair is possible, but is best left to a professional technician. Check with your local service centers.

Your camera focus problem mostly deal with machanical parts. So changing them easily will solve the problem. But unfortunately you may not do it yourself. Because it is highly complicated process. In deed it needs lots of repairing devices which are found only in services. According to me the service had given you the best answer. Please accept their advice. Good luck.

Photography techniques

Use a zoom lens with a wide aperture, best done outdoors with trees behind the subject, it'll blur the background leaving the subject in sharp focus. very flattering especially if you have the subject with their face pointing away from the sun, this'll give you natural looking highlights around the hair line and shoulders and allow you to fill the shadows with a flash.

I have a lumix DMC-F27 camera it will no longer zoom. No I not in movie mode.


Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
Suggestion No. 1:

If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
2. Press "MENU SET".
3. Press the up arrow button.
4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".


Suggestion No. 2:

If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

1. Follow Suggestion No.1.

Suggestion No. 3:

If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

~If the camera has been dropped.
~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at
My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.

Panasonic DMC-FZ7 digital camera.

I believe the FZ7 determines that the lense cap is still on when it can't extend the zoom lense because the lense cap is in the way. I would check to see if your zoom lense housing is somehow stuck (could be sand or dirt in it) which is creating enough resistance to make the camera think the lense cap is impeding the zoom lense from extending.

Low light situation

Where the Panasonic FZ-20 does very well, is with conditions where you need a long zoom under low light. Most lenses will lose light as they are zoomed out. The Leica lens in the FZ-20 does not lose light when zoomed. No matter which camera you are using, you will have to use the manual controls for the best results. So learning about exposure and how to use it, is necessary.
