In Chile just bought a camera Lumix DMC FZ70, zooming only works in automatic mode AI in the other modes only works zoom 1 to 3x, please indicate what should I do

First thing Ariel is to read the manual. Specs say it has something called 'Intelligent Zoom', so it might be by design.

Zoom does not work in video mode

That is correct. You can zoom in and out before starting the movie, but you cannot zoom while recording.

I cant get the zoom to work on panasonic lumix dmc-z8 while filming. It only works while taking a picture.. Can you help me please

You should read the manual.

It states that you can only zoom before you start recording video, and not while recording.

This is not a fault

How tu use video recording..


The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Upper part of pictures is black

This seems to be a CCD problem or associated circuits. Sony Support Team should know about this - may mean a camera callback or swap from Sony.
