There is a 400mm limit on the lens of that camera model... it cannot zoom out farther.

So try using the iZoom, or Intelligent Zoom, feature. It can be enabled in the camera's menus (cf. page 198 in the camera's Advanced Manual), and allows for zooming out farther.

See this page for a discussion of details (of the iZoom and the FZ1000 model):

Note that iZoom will not turn On in RAW mode, only if in JPEG mode.

Be sure that you have the camera in A, or in S, or in P, or in the M (Manual) mode.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.

Thanks.
