The Panasonic DMC-FZ18 is a mid-range digital camera with many manual capabilities as well as Panasonic's "Intelligent Auto Mode." It has a wide-angle lens, 18x optical zoom and an optional add-on teleconversion lens and a close-up lens. The zoom function of the camera adjusts according to whether or not a conversion lens is being used, so if the settings on your camera don't reflect your lens set-up, the zoom function will stop working properly. The solution to this problem is a simple setting change on the camera.
