A New Camera

We have a new camera. For about 4 years now my camera has had a problem with its on/off switch, and has been turning itself off just as I am ready to take a photo. This has produced mutterings and resulted in any number of missed photo opportunities.

Last month we succumbed to temptation and bought a new camera. It's the cheapest new camera we could find that just abour fulfills all requirements. It doesn't have a viewfinder, and it's low light photos are a bit dodgy, but we bought it half price at the soldes at E.Leclerc and it fits in my pocket. I didn't want a camera that hangs around the neck because I am finding that carrying a heavy camera gives me neckache.




When were are out and taking photos I will still be carrying the infuriating Fuji, but now (in theory) we will always have a small camera in our pockets to capture those moments that until now have escaped us.

It may sound daft.... but it sounds like your infuriating Fuji has got it's proverbials in a twist.
It would mean losing any settings you may have but I would recommend doing a factory reset from the maintenance menu.....
BUT FIRST....
go to the point in your menu that you select a time when the screen and the camera goes into power save....
and the point in the menu that the camera turns off.... [you may only have one bit that does both]...
and alter those a few times....
that might clear the problem without a factory reset.

Also, which Lumix is it??
What's the mise au point?
How long is the telephoto....

I have had a Lumix for years and was very happy with it because it took very good photos, at least to my liking. I don't use it any more for two reasons. The first one is the sensor went bad, and the second, because of age and ostroarthriitis of the back, I can't straighten enough to shoot a worthy photo! C'est la vie!
