The Panasonic FZ5 has the following 'Picture Adjustment' settings: Standard, Natural and Vivid. Very little information is given about these settings in the user manual, except that 'Natural' makes the picture look 'softer' What does this mean? Which is the 'recommended' or most common setting for day-to day use?

Not sure on those settings, but if it was me I'd try standard first.

On the fz30 there are settings like that and to see what they look like I put the camera on a tripod and shot the same shot with each setting while making note of the order for reference. There are numerous to try mix and matching so it came out to be alot of shots .

Picture Adjustment controlssharpness, saturation, and contrast with Naturalallowing thelowest leveland Vivid the highest level of in-camera processing. Most keep it at the Standard mid-level. Those who do alot of post processingwill set it to Natural.
