I think my DMC-FZ50 may be defective. If I set the main dial on top to Aperture Priority (A), then turning one of the adjustment wheels - front or rear - should change the aperture, but they don't. If I go to the menu item for 'DIREC.EX.COMP', I can select one of three settings for exposure compensation, using either the front wheel, rear wheel or off. I've tried all three, and I get exposure compensation fine but no aperture adjustment on the other wheel. The same is true for Shutter Priority (S). If anyone knows whether this is a defect or if there is another adjustment I have to make to get A and P to work, please let me know. Thanks. -Martin Adams

That does indeed sound like it is something wrong with the camera. My FZ50 have never done anything like that. I recomend that you should take the camera to the store you bought it from and have them check it for you.

PROBLEM SOLVED

I called Panasonic and talked with tech support. One guy there knew what to do. The DISPLAY button cycles through various screens on the LCD, and at least two of them don't show settings like aperture and shutter, only the uncluttered image. By pressing DISPLAY a few times, the aperture and shutter readout appeared. Thanks to all who responded. -Martin
