I recently bought a Lumix G9 and a TZ8 compact (to replace one the kids "lost").
But like many don't read the instructions or find what all the functions do. As I have some time and we have "light" been having a play.
The electronic shutter for burst mode on the G9 is interesting, the fact it can take pictures before you press the shutter - technically makes sense logically it's "what"
been playing with Time lapse which is fun and if you have time worth investigating - couple of tips I've found from my few attempts - if you can use manual focus stops camera trying to refocus each time, I tried a long set of sunset, but as the light went the camera couldn't focus so blurry. Also be there are the end - left the camera too long, it went to sleep and I lost menu option to make video - and as you can make it in reverse I've done jugs of water un-filling and beer going back into the can.
Have a play and see what odd functions your camera (or phone) has and you've never used.
This is the place to discuss cameras, camcorders and anything you want to do in relation to photography. Also home to the 'photography competition'.
