Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70
I'm in the process of 'unearthing' years of accumulated photographic equipment, in an attempt to 'get my house in order'! I've also decided (since joining UHH)- that it was about time to update and replenish my 'fine art' jpeg files'. So, with that being said...I've put together a 'set-series' of (recent photographs, with all shots being captured with one of my 'bridge'-style point and shoot digital cameras.
*Lumix DMC-FZ70 Digital Camera: 60x Optical Zoom____The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70 Digital Camera is a bridge-style point-and-shoot digital camera that features a 16.1 megapixel High Sensitivity BSI MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video with notable low-light quality. The combination of the processor and sensor enable a native sensitivity range of ISO 100-3200, which can be further expanded to ISO 6400. The processor also affords a wealth of speed to the camera, including the ability to record up to 9 fps in a 3-shot burst, 5 fps with one-shot AF, or 2 fps with continuous AF.*
Looking for a camera - here are the specifications -- help?
i would like a point and shoot type camera (my bridge camera is too heavy for me these days), that has a big sensor, a decent zoom, shoots RAW, shoots clear, crisp photos, preferably with a view finder. I just bought the Lumix SZ70 and it sucks -- the pictures are very noisy. I was using the auto settings. I previously had the FZ1000 and loved it and the photo quality was great but as I said it was just getting too heavy for me (health issues). Any suggestions would be welcome. I've gone through the reviews and they just confuse me more, LOL. thanks in advance for your help.
If God suddenly decreed you could have one lens, and ONLY one (prime or zoom - doesn't matter) ... which lens would it be?
Just an afterthought ... if you don't believe in a higher being - it's no matter ... it's a hypothetical question, anyway ... just curious to see the answers ...
Does anyone here have or use - the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III?
If so, would you care to share your feelings about this MFT MILC body? ... Also, if you would - tell which lenses you have for it ... thanks!
Online gear sales
I'm switching to the Panasonic micro 4/3 system and will need to sell my Canon gear.
I have never sold anything online before and I was wondering how one would proceed with the completion of the transaction.
This may be a stupid question but, it wouldn't be my first. So, do I wait for payment before sending gear? Or, do I ship the gear and hope the other side sends payment at the same time. Do you use PayPal or Postal money order? What protections does each side have? How do you guys work that out?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

iPhone 7-8 camera performance experiences
Hi, I'm hoping to upgrade from a worn out iPhone 5. I'm a former studio owner and always shooting, even though I no longer shoot pro do to disability. With back & neck surgeries the camera always with me is my iPhone.
If you shoot regularly with an iPhone 7 or 8 and make prints, what's been your experience? How large can you print a well exposed & post processed file. Do the 7&8 allow raw files?
Is the dual lens of the plus model worth the $100 difference?
If you've upgraded from a 7 to an 8 is the low light performance significant.
Research told me the 8+ is the same rear camera as the 10.
Before people tell me about the lowly chips in a phone, I'm well aware. I've taken images that are meaningful to me with my 5.
But the main motivation is to capture images and video, easily of my grandson. His mom takes images of him all the time with her first 5c and now 7. When I break out my dslr he shuts down. But an iPhone is invisible to him.
Next is taking pictures of found images, things I find interesting in everyday. Sunsets, cars, bumper stickers, odd mannequins, clouds, etc. And yes my cat 🐱.
Besides being always with me the next best reason for a smartphone is the ability to do a quick edit and share with family. We get 1-3 new images of the grandson every day with a cute watch me grow message.
Finally if not an iPhone what's the best small P&S in the $5-600 range.
In the past I had a Canon G10 & G11. I'm sorry I traded my G11 to KEH.

Loss of AF with Canon Cameras
Four friends and I went out shooting around a lake in North Florida Saturday morning. It was very cold, around 40 degrees, and only an hour after the rains stopped. Two friends and I use Canon cameras, 2 each 7D Mark II and a 70D and we each had different lenses. The other two guys used Nikons. After an hour or so, one Canon's AF quit functioning. Had to go to manual focusing. Then another quit and shortly after that the my Canon quit AF. We checked our batteries, switches, and settings and all was proper, batteries more than half charge.
After going home and checking our equipment, they all worked fine. The guys with Nikons had no difficulty.
Any thoughts about what may have caused the AF to quit working? This just seemed so wierd.
