The zoom only works upto 2X. When you zoom and it usually shows a bar from 1X to 12X, the camera only shows 1X to 2X. Any ideas? Thanks.

Try going into the menu of the camera and reset your camera. Other than that you may have a bad lens.

Your problem is that you have selected a setting for a conversion lens (an add on wide or tele lens)!
You'll find the setting under REC 3/3
menu - up - conversion - OFF

Drove me nuts for a while!

Ipod playing too fast


In the play area of the podcast, at the top right just below where the time remaining shows there is a number plus a cross i.e. 1x, 2x etc. press the 2x and it will go to 1/2x and then to 1x. That will set it back to normal speed. Hope this helps.

I need help on sound built in


u may be able to custom fir the 6x9 into the rear of the vehicle, if you don't want to do that, you may be able to fit them into the spots in the doors, but that still may be a custom job. u could always go with boxes, individual boxes that you could put on the floor on maybe on the back deck where usually the 6x9s would be located. if you dont like that idea, you might try a body shop or electronics retailer because there is definitely a way to fit those speakers in the doors or on the rear deck, it just won't be an easy job for a beginner, you have to cut holes

What does it do or not do? Does it read the blank properly? If it does and comes up as ready to record you need to check the inputs first and work forward from there. If it comes up with No Disc error or OPC error you may want to buy some different media to see if that solves the problem. We have three of these beasts and they seem to be particular about the media used.Our best luck has been with Memorex and Maxell.

Digital zoom doesn't work


Wet has affected the circuitry and could be progressive-[in which case there will be no repair option] best let the camera dry out in a warm place. Take batteries out and let it dry. You could help it along by putting the camera in a snap shut poly-bag with some rice or salt in a cloth/tissue tie to absorb any moisture. As regard the Digital zoom- strict speaking it has no value -it is simply magnifying the centre of the recorded image. rely on the optical zoom and print up bigger section for better clarity.

If you zoom to less than 12x


The macro setting on the fz series allows you to get within a couple of centimeters of the subject and obtain focus. That is pretty close. That is too close. The camera will throw a shadow. You need some room. Most high zoom cameras (notably Olympus) have macro capabilty throughout the zoom which not only increases the magnification but also allows you (requires you) to put some distance between the lens and the subject. The panasonic fz series is different. They do not have macroability at zooms greater than 2x-3x. Beyond that there is no increase in magnification. Why? I dont know. Maybe this feature was designed on a Monday. Fortunately this can all be rectified with the use of a closeup lens. Now the fz series will react like most other high zoom cameras and do it well. The Olympus b-macro is such a lens. There are many others

If you zoom to less than 12x


Sorry you're having such a problem with the fz1 w/b-macro. Here is a shot of the stock fz1 w/b-macro at full 12x zoom - resized only. Try practicing on still objects such as coins or jewlery. If you are beyond 10-12 inches you are probably too far away.
