Thanks Sarah,

I have to tell you that I followed AlanT advice on using the EV and it turn out a great picture.

The more I know about this Little camera more I like it.

I take it that it's an in-camera panorama, is it? It's nicely exposed. My Z1012 always overexposes in its panorama mode, so I fool it by setting the exposure when including more sky than will be in the final shot. Perhaps you had 'Smart Touch' post-processing turned on, did you?(I have it switched off by default). Maybe that would fix my problem more easily.

If that is indeed the case, you have taught me, Zuken, how to shoot my own in-camera panoramas more easily. Thanks very much!

On the other hand, did you, maybe crop it out of a larger frame? Edit: Obviously not, as you called it "Game_pano"!

I agree with Alan. That is a great pano with lots of detail. Well done Zuken!

Alan T. and Sarah,

Thanks for your comments, but the one who is learning here is me. I am learning from you, Sarah, JimC as well as others in the forum. I thank you all for sharing the secrets that make photography such a nice hobby and profession.

The settings are exactly as you describe it.

In-camera panoramic
No crop
Smart-touch on

One thing that I find out is, the light was perfect on the subject (Baseball Field), the distance and position I was, will give a smooth atmosphere surrounding the field.

I try an in-camera panoramic shot, from the lower deck closer to the field, and it was a little over expose, just like Alan T mentioned.

Here are two pano images taken in Macau using the Z1012.
As Alan had said, the Z1012 tended to over-expose a little.

The Ruins of St Paul's - The landmark of Macau


The Colosium at the Fisherman's Wharf

I am also new to the site and looking for information on how to photograph a subject in focus but have the background blurry. I understand that it has everything to do with aperture, I just can't seem to accomplish this with my Kodak 1012is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Jenna,

You can try switching to the A mode, setting to the smallest F-number (i.e biggest aperture), and zooming to the telephoto end of the focal range.

Jenna-

The blurred background feature is something unique to DSLR cameras. However, Fuji is introducing the F-70 camera this month that will have the feature. However, the blurred background in the F-70 is accomplished by camera firmware, not the camera, itself.

Your Z-1012 cannot regularly capture a blurred background. I know as I own a Z-1012 and have raught digital cameras for years.
