Hi there, Folks-

My FZ-35 arrived yesterday and I must tell you that I am pleased with the camera. As an old FZ camera user the new camera felt very comfortable in my hands. Attached is a sunset shot from yesterday evening.

Thanks for reading and sharing.

Very nice, congrats on the camera...I've setup a couple of custom settings for when I'm indoors or outdoors that have worked well for me. For indoors and daytime shooting I have everything set to +1 and noise reduction to -1...everything else is at defaults/auto (ISO, WB, etc)...for night shots I'm using all the defaults and noise reduction set to +1.

Also, the trick I discovered for outdoor night time shots for the Holiday lights is to change the WB setting to "tungsten"....thanks to the suggestion of another user on this forum.

Yes, anthony_b-

The FZ-35 takes some adjusting to produce the best images. And Nite time WB is best set to incandescent or tungesten to avoid that yellow cast to your images.

Have a great day.

The "intelligent" auto mode works quite well too.

Great Sarah, I can't wait for more of your thoughts on the FZ35. I decided some time ago that when I do buy, the FZ35 appeals to me the most overall.

I know there is no real burst mode but would appreciate any examples you can take of action or sports just to see what you can catch with consecutive shots.

I have yet to actually find one that I can handle in my own hot little hands.

I love my FZ 35.......Can't wait to read your comments Sarah :)

Hi Sarah,
does FZ35 make much better pictures than H20? I understand that FZ35 might be in a different class, but here is my dilemma: I recently purchased H20 and it's still within 30 days return period. I can justify $100 extra for FZ35, but the bigger size is my main concern. I think I can give up on size and purchase FZ35 if it really takes much better pictures. I use IntelligentAuto only, no manual settings, mainly outdoor landscape and group of people indoors shootings. Thank you.

Check flikr.com for lots of samples/photos taken with the FZ35...I own one myself and I'm really happy with it...in the summer time I looked at the H20 as well, the FZ35 is a bit bigger due to the size of the lense
