Photographer's Guide to the Panasonic ZS100/TZ100
Getting the Most from Panasonic's Advanced Compact Camera
This book is a complete guide to the use of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 camera, which is known as the TZ100 in Europe, and as the TZ110, ZS110, or TZ101 in other areas. The book shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to capture excellent images and video sequences with the ZS100. The book explains the camera’s controls for autofocus, manual focus, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, white balance, and ISO, as well as many other settings. The book also discusses the camera’s many options for playback, setup, and customizing the operation of its various buttons and other controls.
The book contains more than 400 color photographs showing the camera’s controls, display screens, and menus. The book includes examples of photographs taken using the many creative settings of the camera, including the Photo Style settings; the Creative Control mode picture effects, which provide the ability to customize the appearance of images in dramatic ways; and the camera’s strong array of features for continuous shooting and shooting in high-contrast lighting conditions.
The book also includes a full discussion of the video recording abilities of the ZS100 camera, which offers manual control of exposure and focus during movie recording, and which provides ultra-high definition 4K recording of motion pictures. The book also explains the camera’s special features for extracting still images from 4K video footage and using the Post Focus feature to select a sharply focused image after a shooting session.
In three appendices, the book provides information about accessories for the ZS100, including cases, power supply options, and other items, and includes a list of web sites and other resources for further information. The book includes an appendix with helpful Quick Tips that explain how to take advantage of the camera’s features in the most efficient ways possible.
Excellent guide to the ZS-100
I’m not sure what the other reviewer was talking about, but this guide matches the controls and menus of my LUMIX ZS-100 exactly. This is a much more usable guide than the cameras operators manuals (both the basic and advanced). Like all Mr. White’s camera guides it not only explains the operation in exquisite detail, but also gives guidelines on when and how to apply them. Highly recommended. Well worth the price.
Does not match camera
I purchased this guide to read and help me with my new camera(zs100), but the menu and selections, even the basic ones, in the book do not match the actual camera. The camera may have changed through firmware post print, but I find it more likely the book was written using the zs60 with the assumption it would translate over to the zs100. Regardless, save your money.
