I just got an FZ30 and am overwhelmed by the options available to me. I want to move beyond the automatic mode and wondered if any of you had suggestions on the best way to explore all the features of this camera.

I'd also suggest experimenting with the Program, Aperture Priority an Shutter Priority modes before going fully manual.

Hello Melkope and congratulations on your FZ30 purchase!

I purchased my FZ30 about a year ago and was overwhelmed by all the capabilities it had to offer. I too asked for help in this forum from some of the more experienced FZ30 (and other panasonic) photographers here. This is the link to my questions and the replies. I hope this will help you a little along with the others who reply to your thread.

It has taken me some time but I'm finally getting to know my camera and learning how to use all that it has to offer (which is ALOT). Where I started out taking alot of not so good pictures with a few really good ones now and again, I now take more good ones and fewer not so good.

I hope we will see some of your pictures posted here soon when you feel you want to share. Everyone here is so helpful, supportive, and all around wonderful.

Good luck Melkope and welcome to the Panasonic family. :-)

Thank you for your warm welcome and link to information. Tomorrow I'm going on a field trip with my camera class. We will be going to downtown Asheville, NC to shoot. I know that practice and experimenting is the only way I'll learn it but it's good to know I have a resource if I have questions.
