Customer Question

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 digital camera. I have been using 4 GB SDHC memory cards with the camera. Recently I was informed that 4 GB cards no longer are available. And that the 16 GB memory cards are all that are currently available in stores. Can I use 16 GB cards with my camera? And if not, do you know of any sources for 4 GB SDHC cards?
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Again, it's a Panasonic digital camera, model FZ8 with a 12X digital zoom Lumix lens, and I think it dates to 2008.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I'm not sure what you mean. I recently tried to purchase some GB memory cards, and the store I went to said that the 4 GB memory cards - which is what I've been using - are no longer available. Again, I'd like to know if this camera can use 16 GB memory cards?
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

Hi,
I'm sorry about the issue. You can purchase 4GB memory cards online, like at the Amazon website below:

https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Class-SDHC-Flash-Memory/dp/B00GA0SQS2/

- However, you don't need to do that as your camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 model does support 16GB memory cards. Specially, your camera supports memory cards of size up to 32GB.
