I saw your action message and would like to ask you for a favor, if you don't mind. I've read the Panasonic description for the FZ1 and its says the shutter speed should increase in Action mode.

My FZ1 actually slows the shutter speed, while increasing the F number and keeping the ISO the same. Everything is in Auto mode.

This is contrary to the description. The store model behaves the same as mine.

Can you see how the ISO, FNumber and Shutter speed change when switching from Normal (camera) version Action mode? I'd really appreciate it, as I can exchange my camera if it is defective.

Panasonic Bob only echoed the Panasonic description, without testing.

Thanks for any help,

Troy

Default action mode

I check te value with exif image viewer :
http://home.pacbell.net/michal_k/

The slowest value in action was 1/100
The fastest 1/800
At 2.8 the slowest 1/100 , fastest 1/250
At 3.3 the slowest 1/320 , fastest 1/400
At 3.7 the slowest 1/320 , fastest 1/640
At 4.0 the slowest 1/320 , fastest 1/640
At 4.6 the slowest 1/400 , fastest 1/640
At 5.2 the slowest 1/500 , fastest 1/800
At 5.6/6.5 the slowest 1/800 , fastest 1/800


To get very fast shutter speed use the burst mode (4fr/s)

You need to check this mode in good daylight

Default shutter priority

Have you tried the FZ2 shutter priority function to shot some of your very nice photos?

It's only my second experience with the FZ-2, I am still learning.
