Default The FZ18 does it for me!

Posting my first photo here on Steve's - mainly to test the function but I would be interested in any comments on this RAW/Silkypix image.

I'm just a snapshooter and view my photos on screen and when I print it's 7x5 maximum.

I just love my FZ18!

A bit less on the left and a bit more on the right, (I need to see that shrub) and also I think a jpeg would be quite sufficient, I really don't understand why people resort to RAW, If your camera cannot deliver sharp acceptable pictures then there is something wrong with your settings, or you have a dud camera. If it is possible could you have another go at this scene? Please don't take offence, I realise it is your first post, and you are experimenting, we all go through a learning curve, and sometimes think we are better than we really are. above all keep posting.

Thanks, Phil. I'm very happy with the FZ18 as for general snapshooting it is zippy enough with adequate resolution for my purposes.

It has the best EVF out of all the cameras I have that possess them and that factor is important to me.

All the best for the coming season from Scoot (Oliver).

No offence taken at all! It was a bit of an experiment with RAW and I DO find Jpegs serve my purpose.

I will shoot the scene again when the weather gets better and I shall certainly ensure you see the shrub!

Many thanks for your help and Season's greetings from Scoot (Oliver).

Welcome to the forum.

I'm pleased you liked it and if you are ever in this part of the world you'll find this location roughly half way between the villages of Drefach and Porthyrhyd in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

And I appreciate the welcome!

Season's greetings from Scoot (Oliver).

That was quick Scoot, you have proved to me that going Raw is a waste of time, unless you are going to poster size, both your shots are equally sharp, and you seem to know how to handle that camera, I will be watching out for more of your work.
