Thread: TZ1 tech q'ns, are there any 3rd party accessories?

  1. #1

    Question TZ1 tech q'ns, are there any 3rd party accessories?

    For example, lens adaptor for wide angle and macros?
    Else any slave flash works with it?

    Is it possible to adjust internal flash compensation?

    Pana would have made TZ2 with a flash socket, AV/TV/Manual.
    Plus an analog wheel to manual focus.

    yeah, but that's the volume/weight of more than three TZ1s..

    Due to the special design of lens, I would design focus and zoom wheels similar
    to the aperture/shutter dials on 350D.

    fz20 ain't as heavy as you think... it is only about double the weight of tz1.
    and what do the lens design/focus and zoom wheels have to do with the shutter/aperture dial of 350D?
    If you are talking about the lacking of aperture/shutter mode, I think that is becos tz1 is design for a casual/snapshot shooter thus the missing of those "manual" mode.

    and btw, i don think even if they place a hotshoe mount on tz1 current design, no one will want to mount a flash that is heavier and bigger than the camera itself.

    Hi everyone, newbie here. Just happened to stumble into this forum and it's great! Got myself a TZ1 seven months ago after going through its reviews and stuffs. Yeah, it's almost everything I wanted.

    For accessories wise, anyone can tell me where to get an Olycap? I've searched the shops and they gave me blank faces everywhere. I'm too lazy with the lens cap and its retaining strap.



    Any advise is welcomed, thankx!

    Understand that there's a underwater casing for Tz1.
