If you have a typical looking point and shoot, I wonder if they make you turn on the camera and extend the zoom lens out to its max?

Had that happen here in Germany. I wanted to get in a venue with the LX100 once and they refused me entry after looking closely at the lens. No arguing with the lens being fixed helped. Ever since the TZ100 got announced it was my ultimate solution for everything.

I bought an OEM soft case recently for my camera.  Part#  DMW-PHS82.  Fits perfectly.  For those of you that shoot from the hip, this is a great option. 

I bought mine from an eBayer in Latvia.  The case arrived 1 week after I won the auction.  Only 9 left.

I just purchased a ZS100, and I’m just getting started learning how to use it.  I’ve been using a ZS7 for many years.  For my 1st project, I have to shoot at 1080.   Could anyone here help me out with basic settings?

I can shoot 1080 in any mode: iA, iA+, P, A, S, M, “Creative Video Mode”

With the ZS7 I used to shoot in custom portrait mode or iA, take a rough guess at my exposure, based on the venue I was in, and set it accordingly.  For bright shows usually -2 or so, dim clubs, I go +2.  Then the camera would essentially do everything for me, with the exposure down a little lower or raised a little.  If I needed to fix the exposure because my guess was off, I’d have to briefly stop the video, change it, and then hit record again.

To achieve the same results with the ZS100, would you recommend, iA on the new camera, something else?  Are there ISO or other settings I need to set in those modes?  Or perhaps I’m better off using Creative Video Mode because with this mode, I can adjust exposure while recording.  If I’m doing that, does that mean that the camera is not doing any automatic exposure at all for me?  This would be different from what the ZS7 does.

I’ve been reading the manuals and playing around, and I’ll get into 4K later with all the comments in this thread, I just want to make sure the 1st project goes ok, and I’m not dead in the water.  I appreciate any help or comments.

Thanks,
Bill

I'm just getting started with mine.  Totally blown away with the results so far.  I took these shots in "Ai+" on Wednesday night.  I was in the upper deck, 4th row, center ice.  The 10x zoom produces way less noise than any of the ZS line I've owned.  If you want to take great pictures and still have a pocket-zoom, this is the one to have, imo.  Next step up would be mirrorless and I don't want to carry an extra lens or get hassled at big arenas.  If you're on the edge of buying one,  Do it!  This one's a keeper.  :yack:
