    Thank Andrews for your answer, however the problem that occurs is that the 60x optical zoom, only works in iA Mode (Intelligent Auto) and not in P Mode (Program AE) for example, or in others as A mode, S or M.
    It is not my purpose to activate the other options smart or digital zoom for now

Zoom 1x to 3x sounds like the limits of optical zoom. The other zoom option may be digital zoom, which merely interpolates pixels to give the impression of a larger picture, and, as you reach the limit of the zoom, the picture quality may be so degraded that the image is unusable.

Can i zoom when in movie mode


Reviews by camera review websites and owners alike, have noted the inability of the camera to zoom while in movie mode. Other cameras in the Lumix line up do have the capability, but it appears that this one does not.

I hope this helped.

Hi - i have a Lumix DMC-LX2 that has just recently stopped operation - (for example) when set to (scene) the screen simply scrolls repeatedly thru the scene choices non-stop. When taken out of scene mode...


sounds like the button or direction joystick is making continuous contact. You could try using canned air on it to blow it out. Otherwise i would get it professionally cleaned. Nice camera by the way.

Describe your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Digital


Hi,
the zoom in the camera is manual, are the lenses moving inside, when you go from 35 to 420 mm?
Have you dropped your camera or has is experienced a shock of some kind? In that case you would need to send it for repairing the lenses, do not attempt to do that on your own.

Panasonic lumix dmc-fx01 won't focus


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.

Won't go into digital zoom


In the menu of the camera (the spanner icon) you will find an icon that says "digital zoom on/off". Tha camera comes from the factory with the digital zoom switched off.

FX8 all button frozen


I am not sure if this is a solution. but one time, i turned on my camera when the battery is really drained. usually (when it was broken) it will automatically zoom in. but that certain period when i turned it on, even before it can zoom in, the battery drained and the camera went off. i charged the battery and when i put it back and turned on the camera, it works fine. it is still working fine. good thing i didnt had the repair center fix it, because they charge really high price.

Faulty focus


Have you tried changing the focusing mode to one of the other settings? I usually find central point setting best for zoom. Alternatively, you could try using Macro (the flower) setting - I leave mine on this all the time it's really the best general purpose mode.
