I understated. Enjoy your time in China. I am a US citizen and I have also lived in Beijing. I also traveled around the country and I gave lectures at different universities on production/post production .

The up-arrow button below the function button is the push-to-focus button. Pushing it forces the AF to focus. The most important buttons are this button and the MF assist button (which one assigns) that magnifies the image. The latter is useful for both manual focusing and checking that the AF has focused on what you want (which with Panasonic focusing is not always the case). The magnified image is very clear, and the magnification allows one to gage or achieve focus precisely

Brian, I'd like to know if you found a good price in Canada.

Also, is there a video recording time limit as is often the case with cheaper cameras?

Thanks

The Z Camera E1 has no recording limit. Moreover, if one gets a usb-to-barrel connector cable, the camera can be powered externally using any usb battery pack of the type used for cell phones (5V 2A).

The video in the post above was shot by me to test the low-light.

Here is another video, shot by me:

sorry didn't mean to hijack your clip which I found on a facebook page and had no mention of your name or that of anybody else and given the nice way the camera seemed to handle the night for night scene i figured it would be good to post it here

Good to know both of those things. Inching closer to dropping the cash. And from a video you posted in another thread it seems reasonable in low light.

My primary use would be as B camera for indoor speaking events. Did a day long event a few weeks back, 2 cameras, 3 audio recorders/wireless mics. Checking/changing batteries got old fast.
