Hello everyone !

Well I am thinking to buy one hybrid camera to take pictures and videos, but I'm worried about lifespan of sensors (cmos and ccd) when used to film. I heard from many persons that hybrid cameras are bad choice because if used a lot to make videos will reduce drastically to less one year. Will be true ?
Also, CCD are more susceptible to show problem early than CMOS (hot problems) ?

If I buy one Panasonic FZ35 and start to make videos with 2 hours per day (duration) more lot photos, did I will get problems ?
Any commet is very welcome.


Carlos (Brazil)

ps: sorry about my bad english.

Welcome on-board Carlos!

I understand your concern, but I can confirm I've never worn out a camera by using its video mode. But then I typically only have a camera on test for a few weeks before it's returned to the manufacturer. Could other FZ owners comment on how long they've owned their cameras and whether they've experienced any issues?

Since movies are a normal and expected function of the camera though, it should be fine.

I think you will be very pleased with your choice.
The FZ38/35 is probably the best SuperZoom on the market right now and certainly (as of December) the Global top seller in the SuperZoom class.

Cool ! Tomorrow my camera is arriving ! :)

Hello Gordon !
What kind of sensor (CMOS / CCD) is more modern for camera digital ?
I read that CCD is old tecnology but use a lot nowadays.
Also I notice that exist some "prejudice" with tecnology CMOS because is suceptible rolling shutter problems.
I would like your opinion, if possible.

Good that CCD sensor has not rolling shutter problems and FZ35 use CCD.

See you,
