When you go somewherelike this,it becomes very apparent theoutstanding array ofsubjects this little jewel can handle.

I decided, with the exception of the 10-12 or so flash shots where I used Auto to get access to the low shutter speed flash and redeye correction tool, to use this camera exclusively in the iA mode for everything else and just concentrate on zooming, composition and pressing the release steadily enough to get sharp images, and the TZ5 delivered is most every case.

In some of these I added a contrast boost in Photoshop CS2 since I used the Standard parameters, but the post processing was very limited in scope and, with some images, none was used at all...





















This was shot using Auto mode andslow flash sync with redeye correctionto both light the subject and the background at 1/8 second..



Next few images were shot at Buck Island, just across from St. Croix..









At the Botanical Gardens, which was located within the ruins of an old sugar plantation..







Sunset on the last day, using the "sunset" mode at 280mm..

Yes, definitely the Auto mode. All the time I had iAuto on I had the flash turned off....there's only two flash options in iAuto....off and Auto, and you lose the ability to setyour ownminimum shutter speed, so to take advantage of what options the TZ5 does offer with flash, you really need to be in the regular Auto mode.

The redeye correction mode works wonderfully with the TZ5 too. I've not made a flash shot yet that required me removing any redeye in Photoshop.

Hi Greg-

Beautiful shots! I also am back for a few days before I head out again. 'Just finished a month in Europe with the TZ-5 and had great results. So I too, am a "happy camper."
