Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't get the moon in focus.

I have a Panasonic G1 with a Lumix 14-45 lens. The only object I can't focus on correctly is the full moon. If I use manual focussing, however slowly I turn the focus ring, I reach a point at which the moon is not in focus, but becomes less focussed in whatever direction I turn the ring. Autofocus works properly only if the moon is surrounded with clouds. What am I doing wrong?
I would like to add that I have made successful photo's of the moon with other - less sophisticated - camera's

Full moon is very bright, so you are probably seriously over-exposing your image......not enough contrast in there for the camera to focus on.

Under expose in small increments until the camera can latch onto to the image accuratley.

Panasonic H-FS014042 not working with GF1


If you placed the lens correct, till it clicked while turning, it should work correct. Did you check if there was anything on the contacts, before placing the lens?
Can you focus manually? and is your camera in the auto focus mode?
I can't make more at this moment. Success.

When using different lenses, a few things should be kept in mind.For some you need an adapter and not every lens ail work as the lenses made for this camera. Sometimes focus or other things needs to be set manually. So even when you can connect a lens to the camera you don't have any guaranty it will work fully automatic and correct. Please read the manual tag came with your camera, about the differences between the four thirds cameras and lenses.

I cannot see anything through the lens of my brand new 6 SE. What should I do?


During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube. Center the landscape object in the telescope. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour). Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

When half press the shutter button, the camera immedietly snaps a picture, it does not focus on the object or get the correct exposure.


Yeah,why did you half press the shutter?When you take a photo,you should press the shutter with force quickly.I think you didn't set your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Camera at a proper mode for the scene,shot with a correct the next time.Wish helpful to you.

I cant read Lumix G1 RAW files with photoshop cs3


It's possible that Photoshop hasn't issued a plug-in for your camera. Check with them. Didn't you get some software with the camera to read the raw files?

Pictures are blurry and wavy


This must be a problem of the lens. Replacing the light focusing lens will surely help.

Focusing


On most digital cameras you can point at an object centred in the lens and hold the shutter control in slightly, them move the camera to another area with the focus/exposure set. If your camera gets it's focus as an average of multiple points this may be a little tougher.
