    I have the Kindle version it is a comprehensive guide to the cameras basic functionality, but does not cover any advance techniques.
    Its a better guide than the one panasonic supply when you purchase the FZ2000/2500

      Well, I think it is, but that is something for you to judge. My book has hundreds of color illustrations, and explains the use of camera features in ways that the Panasonic manual does not do. It also provides tips and general information that the Panasonic guide doesn’t. You might want to take a look at the table of contents, index, and excerpt that are available to download at the book’s main information page.

    I received the paperback version yesterday and glanced through all pages. My first impression: very, very useful. Everything explained nicely. Compared to the Lumix manual, this book will be my primay source of information. Only in doubt I will falmback on the Lumix manual.

    One remark though: the print quality (as far as text is concerned) is ok. However, the print quality of the pictures is poor. Nevertheless, I like the book and can recommend it to other Fz2000 newbies.

      Thank you for your comments. With respect to the quality of the photographs, it is true that they are not as sharp as you would find in a glossy coffee-table photography book. I could have them printed at higher quality, but the cost of using heavier paper and enhanced print quality would raise the price I would have to charge for the book dramatically. I believe the print quality I am using now represents the best compromise between quality and cost. But it is certainly helpful to hear readers’ reactions, which I will take into account in planning any future editions or future books.

    I guess you may get some orders from facebook group “Lumix FZ2000 – FZ2500″… I hope they like the book as much as I do.

    Dear Alex,
    I’m bit puzzled about the stabilizer function for taking 4K videos and I could not get satisfactory answer from the dpreview . com members either
    your book says:
    “When recording movies, the camera can use its 5-Axis Hybrid Image Stabilizing Function, which electronically corrects image jitter in five directions. It is selected through the E-Stabilization sub-option of the Stabilizer item. As a side-effect of this internal processing, motion picture frames may become cropped to a narrower angle of view than normal. The 5-Axis system does not operate when recording 4K movies, using Variable Frame Rate, or using Digital Zoom”

    I’m confused now whether 5-Axis system or any portion of stabilizing will ever work recording 4K videos?
    if so under what settings? ( I don’t care if it is cropped. All I want is an internal stabilizer)
    Will there be any indication that it is working during recording or we have to check after the event, do you think, please?

    Kind Regards

      Hello, Kimberley — I don’t have this camera anymore, so all I can do is point to the official Panasonic users guide, which says that the stabilizer function is not available “when recording motion pictures with their size set to [4K] or [C4K] in [Rec Quality].”

      — Alex
