I've been experimenting with the FZ30 to see what the best settings are to "freeze" my subjects. Here are a few I took this weekend. Many thanks to my friends for volunteering for this experiment:G

It's in!


The new gymnastics costume


Corner kick


The last two were just a couple potraits that I thought turned out well. When the light is good, the FZ30 really can pull off some detailed shots.

Nice job indeed

If you have good light the FZ30 may be the best camera ever made.

I like the timing of the actionshots and facial expression on the #1 portrait a lot! Well done

So....what were the settings?

My biggest problem is not so much the freezing, but tracking the subject and keeping it in the frame. Birds, especially. I can freeze 'em if I can see 'em and keep 'em in the viewfinder!

Is it just a matter of practicing the panning, or is there some secret trick to it?
