In many ways it's an excellent pocket camera!
What I didn't know is Panasonic only supports Microsoft for camera software (Panasonic does support iPhone wifi support thankfully).
I love the camera but not the current Panasonic management. I think it needs a sound and loud scolding.
I bought and paid on Panasonic's website $482.32 for the ZS40 camera.
Nowhere on the webpage did it say Microsoft only or no Apple support, for me that is not a fix anyway. Direct real support is what's needed.
To this day I am upset that I can't edit in RAW on my computer.
(and yes, I'm aware I could get/buy software from "others" to support Raw for Mac)
My wish is that this issue gets on the radar and in the forefront of reviewers reviews, (mouth full) in more then a passing manor.
Creative departments of most (if not all) major corporations use only Apple machines because the Design Industry is Mac.
(no overreaching or flame intent)
Is Panasonic saying we don't support/recognize the creative industry?
My thought is (with all respect) maybe support BY Panasonic for Mac should be a change led by the folks holding the banners.
I'm not an Apple customer so not an issue I'd get worked up about but I totally appreciate your frustration and views. Maybe one to make Gordon aware of via twitter or his FB page? He might well pick up your comment here.
I'm interested how you found other aspects of this camera, specially macro shots?
