Default Questions and best settings for your Panasonic camera

I started playing around with my FZ35/38 and I took some nice pictures playing around with the "P" mode and adjusted the color and contrast/saturation to +1 and noise reduction to -1. All my pictures were outdoors. Does anyone have any recommended settings for indoor shots ?


Also, I live in very a bright/sunny state (Florida), does anyone recomend always attaching the hood for best IQ on a sunny day outdoors ?....is there a difference in IQ ?

I'm also thinking of taking some pictures of the decorated homes during the holidays at night, what would be the optimal settings for that ?

Kind of suprised to see that my camera is made in Japan, kind of rare these days. Also, when I connected the camera to my computer it recognized it as a "Matshita" and not Panasonic (sp ?)

Yes, I know... and for many years.It was a similar name, but not Matsushita.

It's always been Matsuchita (as far as I can remember).

As for where the camera is made in, I agree with you, Anthony. Considering that the FZ is simply a P&S, it is surprising that Panasonic still manufactures them in Japan (perhaps that's one of the reasons their P&S are so reliable). However, this may change in the near future. I've read in many places that some G1 are now made in China.
