Very tasteful and crisp pictures of landscape arcitecture , Greg I'm especially drawn in by #1, #4 and #5! I was playing around a friend's point and shoot Panny yesterday, and amazed to see even that one had the O.I.Sand providingaspect ratios of 3:2 and 16:9 besides the 4:3!

So, you're using the Silkypix for the Raw conversionof these silky smooth images : )...Iused the pentax photo laboratory (ppl) for a while which is known to be a simplified Silkypix, but now using the CS3.Iwonderif yours has a feature similar to 'fill light' in Photoshop:roll:

Thank you, Bahadir!

Yes, Panasonic offers a lot in terms offeatures. Sometimes the in-cameraprocessing can be a little overbearing in JPEG capture, but for screen-sized viewing and making prints up to around11x14, they can create some very nice looking files.

The Silkypix converter came bundled with the FZ50 and is a pretty cool little processor. I also have access to Adobe Camera RAW via Photoshop CS2....I need a new computer before going up to CS3 or Lightroom(!), but I like the way this program converts the FZ50 RAW files. I have not noticed a fill light or backlight control, but then again I know there are several tools I have not yetfully explored in Silkypix. I'll often do the basic conversion then mess with the JPEG's some more in Photoshop.

Thank you for presenting the pictures. The FZ50 is a great versatile tool, giving everything from superb macros to tele photos. I want one as a all in one solution
