Panasonic lumix DMC-FZ10 at least 5 years old no longer focuses
Mid March I took fine pictures one day, then the next I could not get a sharp focus. Have checked everything I could think off, to no avail. Could there be another battery besides the obvious one that needs to be changed?

It's probably something to do with a lag or jam on your shutterspeed. so when you hit the button, and move you get a little blur. If its not this you might need to have your lens cleaned inside and out due to the camera zooms and catches the blurs on the lens after zooming so far in. I would recommend taking it to your local camera shop for adjustments and cleaning.
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.
Try checking your settings or menu for a vibration sensor or changing the focus. You might also be using the wrong setting, like indoor, when you're at the beach. You can also change the quality of the pictures and if you are taking still photography or movement.
There's a small dial on the left side of the viewfinder (next to the flash button) that allows you to focus the viewfinder. I only found it because I had the same problem - must have knocked it out of focus by accident!
See the post for the same camera: "Buttons stopped working": there is a small 2 position switch connected to the zoom button. In my camera the zoom switch was stuck in one of the extreme positions. You have to put it back in the middle an re-assemble.
You don't normally want to focus on infinity for landscape shots.
Auto focus on mid distance between you and infinity [horizon or most distant object] while half holding down shutter button re compose your pic and shoot.
Depth of field will help to ensure that everything is in focus larger F stop more depth of field. f2.8 minimum depth of field.
This is digital, film is cheap :-)
Using the same focus spot, take one shot at each aperture and decide which aperture gives the desired results in terms of sharpness, I think you will find that will be around f4.
Then try different focusing spot [closer or further away] to adjust how much between you and infinity is in focus depending on the results YOU wish to achieve.
