All I can say is wow. Easy to use and the zoom is the best for the money. I own 5 digital camera and this is by far the top of the line.

This has been a great camera. My replacement for mountaineering/backpacking after my C2100 UZ1 proved too heavy and bulky. FZ5 is sturdy. This is a great little camera. I have owned it since Summer 2005. Over 7000 images later it is still going strong! See the results /

For a mid range price this camera is good. If your fine with auto focus only, and dont mind a little more bulk than a traditional point and shoot.

LITTLE JEWEL THAT SHOOTS SUPERB PICS THIS LITTLE JEWEL MIGHT BE A LITTLE OUT DATED AS FAR AS PIXELS GO BUT THE LENS IS WHAT COUNTS AND THIS LITTLE BAB... Great while it lasted! I purchased this camera in March 2005 and within a month had to return it for repair.

Trade Name: Model No.:

Panasonic DMC-FZ5 DMC-FZ4 Responsible party: Panasonic Corporation of North America One Panasonic Way, Secaucus, NJ 07094 Support Contact: Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company 1-800-272-7033 This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003
Care for the camera Do not shake or cause impact to the camera. The camera may not be operated normally or recording of pictures may be disabled, or the lens may be damaged. Sand or dust may cause a malfunction of the camera. When you use the camera on a beach etc., take care so that sand or dust does not get into the camera. When you use the camera on a rainy day or on a beach, take care so that water does not get into the camera. If seawater splashes onto the camera, wet a soft cloth with tap water, wring it well, and use it to wipe the camera body carefully. Then, wipe it again with a dry cloth. About the LCD monitor/Viewfinder Do not press the LCD monitor strongly. It may cause uneven colors on the LCD monitor or a malfunction of the LCD monitor. In a place with drastic temperature changes, condensation may form on the LCD monitor. Wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. If the camera is extremely cold when you turn the camera on, the image on the LCD monitor/Viewfinder is slightly darker than usual at first. However, as the internal temperature increases, it goes back to the normal brightness. Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the LCD monitor/ Viewfinder screen. The result is more than 99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. However, this will not be recorded on the pictures in the card.
About the Lens Do not direct the lens to the sun or strong light sources. It may cause not only a malfunction of the camera but irreversible damage to your eye. Do not press the lens strongly. Leaving the camera with the lens facing the sun may cause a malfunction. Be careful when you put the camera outside or near a window. About Condensation (When the lens or the Viewfinder is fogged up) Condensation takes place when the ambient temperature or humidity is changed as follows: Be careful of condensation since it causes stains on the lens, fungus or malfunction. When the camera is brought inside from the cold to a warm room. When the camera is moved from outside to an air-conditioned car. When cool wind from an air conditioner or other is directly blown onto the camera. In humid places Put the camera into plastic bag until the temperature of the camera is close to the ambient temperature to avoid condensation. In case of condensation, turn the camera off and then leave it for about 2 hours. When the camera becomes close to the ambient temperature, the fog disappears naturally.

To avoid picture noise, we recommend decreasing the ISO sensitivity or setting [PICT.ADJ.] to [NATURAL]. (P80) Refer to P59 for the shutter speed.

Picture Size [PICT.SIZE]

Quality [QUALITY]
When you select a larger picture size, you can print pictures clearly. When you select a smaller picture size (640k480 pixels), you can record more pictures. In addition, it is convenient to attach the picture to an e-mail or post it on a website because the file size is small. 2560 (DMC-FZ5) 2560k1920 pixels 2304 (DMC-FZ4) 2304k1728 pixels 2048 (DMC-FZ5) 2048k1536 pixels 640 HDTV 1600k1200 pixels 1280k960 pixels 640k480 pixels 1920k1080 pixels

You can switch to the following metering modes. Multiple: This is the method in which the camera measures the most suitable exposure by judging the allocation of brightness on the whole screen automatically. Usually, we recommend using this method. Center weighted: This is the method used to focus on the subject on the center of the screen and measure the whole screen evenly. Spot: This is the method to measure the subject in the spot metering target A.

AF Mode [AF MODE]

Spot-focusing: The camera focuses on the limited and narrow area in the screen.
9-area-focusing: The camera focuses on any of 9 focus areas. You can record a picture in free composition without limiting the position of the subject.
3-area-focusing (high speed): The camera focuses on any of the left, center and right of the screen.
High speed AF (H) mode When you select 3-area-focusing (high speed) or 1-area-focusing (high speed), the auto focus is activated in high speed and you can focus on the subject more quickly. Pictures may become still in the condition they were in before the subject was focused when you press the shutter button. However, it is not a malfunction. If you do not want to make pictures still during the auto focus, use the AF mode other than 3-area-focusing (high speed) mode and 1-area-focusing (high speed) mode.
1-area-focusing (high speed): The camera focuses on the subject in AF area on the center of the screen.
When using the digital zoom or when you take pictures in dark places, the AF area is displayed on the center of the screen with a size wider than usual.
1-area-focusing: The camera focuses on the subject in AF area on the center of the screen.
When multiple AF areas (max. 9 areas) light at the same time, the camera is focusing on all the AF areas. The focus position is not predetermined because it is set to the position that the camera automatically determines at the time of focusing. If you want to determine the focus position to take pictures, switch the AF mode to 1-area-focusing mode.

Continuous AF [CONT.AF]

AF Trigger [AF TRIGGER]
This mode allows you to compose a picture more easily by always focusing on the subject. When the AF mode is set to 1-area-focusing, 1-area-focusing (high speed) or spot-focusing, the time required for focusing when pressing the shutter button halfway will be reduced. When it is set to [ON], the [ ] indication appears.

When taking a picture with prefocus, set the button for starting AF (Auto focus) to [FOCUS] on [AF TRIGGER]. Prefocus is a technique to focus on the point where you take a picture of the subject with quick motion. This function is suitable when the distance between the camera and the subject is pre-determined. When you press the shutter button halfway, the Auto focus is activated. FOCUS When you press the [FOCUS] button, the Auto focus is activated. Procedure for recording with prefocus using [FOCUS] button 1 Aim the AF area to the point where you want to focus. (P31) 2 Press the [FOCUS] button. When the subject is focused, the AF area 1 turns from white to green and the focus indication 2 lights up for about 1 second. If the subject is out of focus, the AF area turns from white to red and the focus indication blinks for about 1 second. The focus will not be changed unless you press the [FOCUS] button again.
The battery may be consumed faster than usual. It may take time to focus on the subject after rotating the zoom lever from Wide to Tele or suddenly changing the subject from a distant one to a nearby one. Press the shutter button halfway again when it is difficult to focus on the subject.
When you press the shutter button halfway, [ AFFOCUS ] indication disappears and then the aperture value and the shutter speed are displayed. When you press the shutter button halfway without pressing the [FOCUS] button, the [ AFFOCUS ] indication turns red. 3 When the subject is enclosed within the focused area, press the shutter button to take a picture. When taking pictures normally, set the AF Trigger to [ ]. When you need to focus on the subject before recording such as prefocus, set to [FOCUS]. After you complete recording with prefocus, set the AF Trigger to [ ] again.

AF Assist Lamp

[AF ASSIST LAMP]
Illuminating the subject with the AF assist lamp allows the camera to focus on the subject in low light conditions. When you press the shutter button halfway in dark places or other situations, an AF area wider than usual appears and the AF assist lamp A turns on. ON The AF assist lamp turns on under low light conditions. In this time, the AF assist lamp icon [ ] appears on the screen. The effective range of the AF assist lamp is 1.5 m (4.92 feet).
In simple mode [ ], the AF Trigger is automatically set to [ ].
OFF The AF assist lamp does not turn on.
Be sure of the following points when the AF assist lamp is in use. Do not look into the AF assist lamp. Detach the lens hood. Do not cover the AF assist lamp with your fingers when taking a picture. The battery may be consumed faster than usual when using the AF assist lamp. In simple mode [ ], the setting on the [AF ASSIST LAMP] is fixed to [ON]. You cannot use the AF assist lamp in [SCENERY], [NIGHT SCENERY], [PANNING] and [FIREWORKS] in scene mode (P63). When you do not want to use the AF assist lamp (e.g. when you take a picture of a subject in a dark place), set the [AF ASSIST LAMP] to [OFF]. In this case, it becomes difficult to focus on the subject. The AF area is set only to a point on the center of the screen when the AF assist lamp is turned on. A vignetting effect may appear on the circumference of the AF assist lamp because the AF assist lamp may be obscured by the lens, however, this does not cause a problem with the performance of the camera.

Cautions for Use

Optimal Use of the Camera When carrying the camera, take care not to drop or cause impact to it. The lens or the outer case may be destroyed by the strong shock, and it causes a malfunction of the camera. Keep the camera away from magnetized equipment (such as a microwave oven, TV, video game equipment, etc.). If you use the camera on or near a TV, pictures and sounds may be disrupted due to electromagnetic wave radiation. Do not use the camera near a cell phone because doing so may cause noise to adversely affect the pictures and sounds. Recorded data may be damaged, or pictures may be distorted by strong magnetic fields created by speakers or large motors. Electromagnetic wave radiation generated by a microprocessor may adversely affect the camera, causing the disturbance of pictures and sounds. If the camera is affected by magnetically charged equipment and does not function properly, turn the camera off and remove the battery or disconnect AC adaptor (DMW-CAC1; optional) and then insert the battery or connect AC adaptor again. Thereafter, turn the camera on. Do not use the camera near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines. If you record near radio transmitters or high-voltage lines, recorded pictures or sounds may be adversely affected. Make sure to use the supplied cords and cables. If you use optional accessories, use the cords and the cables supplied with them. Do not extend the cords and the cables. Do not spray insecticides or volatile chemicals onto the camera. If the camera is sprayed with such chemicals, the camera body may be damaged and the surface finish may peel off. Do not keep rubber or plastic products in contact with the camera for a long period of time. Do not use benzine, thinner or alcohol for cleaning the camera. Before cleaning the camera, remove the battery or disconnect the charger from the electrical outlet. The camera body may be deformed and the surface finish may peel off. Wipe the camera with a soft, dry cloth. To remove stubborn stains, wipe with a cloth that is soaked in a detergent diluted with water and afterward finish wiping with a dry cloth. If you use a chemical cloth, follow the instructions that come with the cloth. In case rain or other sources of water splash onto the camera, wet a soft cloth with tap water, wring it well, and use it to wipe the camera body carefully. Then wipe it again with a dry cloth.
