Default Just purchased the FZ35

Hi All!! I just joined this forum after lurking for a couple of days. Great info to be had for sure!!
As my title says, I just purchased the FZ35. It should be delivered tomorrow. I have an FZ18 that I've owned for about 2 years. I've been happy with it. But when I researched the FZ35 and saw that it is capable to video in AVCHD... and zoom when shooting a video, I was more intrigued.
So as I said, I made the purchase and I'll be giving my FZ18 to my daughter. I just hope that I'm happy with the performance of the FZ35 that I've been reading about here, and at other places on the internet.
If anyone has some need-to-know FZ35 tips, please let me know!!

Tony

congrats tony,

it should not be a difficult transition from the fz18, being of the same geneology.

hrvoje-

It is best to begin in the P for programed auto mode. That mode will produce the best results.

Congratulations, Tony-

You will really enjoy the FZ-35. Instead of Automatic or IA, you will get better image quality using the "P" or Programed Auto Mode, which works just like automatic.

Post some photos when you have a chance.

Have a great day.

Sarah - What do you mean by an Automatic mode?.... Is it different than iA in FZ35?.... which mode in the dial is the Automatic?....
YOu have also mentioned that the "P" mode is Programmed Auto Mode and works just like automatic.... could you elaborate a bit on this....
Looks like there are multiple auto modes in FZ35... I'm sure must be for a reason, but not able to make out for myself.....

mithunbaby-

Please observe the attached photo very closely. It is a photo of the Mode Selector on my FZ-35 camera. I do not recommend using the IA mode, which is the automatic mode. I do suggest that you use the "P" or Programed Auto Mode, which is indicated by the letter "P".

If all else fails so to page 24 in the Owner's manual.
