This is one of my first pictures with my fz50 and an olympus tcon 17. It was quite cloudy and gloomy today. It should work even better in brighter sunlight.

Pretty good for the conditions and it will work better with more light.

Thanks for the replies. They are appreciated. The photo was taken on a tripod. How did you know that it was a 1/20 exposure? Did you see the photo on flickr?

Genece, I checked out your website and was very impressed. You have some amazing photos. I like the results you get from your fz30 and hope that I will do as well with my fz50.

Very good, especially for a first try. Looks to me like you have a pretty good understanding of the camera settings. It's hard or impossible for someone that doesn't to get the color and detail on the squirrel being backlit with the sky.

I noticed that the EXIF info showed the focal length at 748mm. Does the FZ50 take the telephoto lens into consideration plus the 432mm of the FZ50 zoom? On my FZ20 it does not. No matter what lens I put on at 12x it still shows 432mm.

Don, as far as I know the camera does not take the telephoto lens into consideration. A very nice feature on this camera is that when you lower the recorded megapixels the optical zoom is extended. This photo was taken at 3 megapixels and that allowed for a 21.4x optical zoom.

Thanks, I forgot about the extended zoom feature. I'm used to my FZ20.
