mithunbabu-

With the FZ-35/38 set up properly, you should hve nor problems at all wuth Macro or close-up photos.

I generally shoot as follows:

WB=Auto
ISO=Auto
Saturation +1
Contrast +1
Noise Reduction -1

The settings for saturation, contrast, and noise are a matter of personal choice and what appearance you prefer in your photos. For improved photo quality, it is best tto avoid using the "IA" mode on the FZ-35/38.

Have a great weekend.

Sarah , Ive applied your preferneces in Program AE mode . Now well see whatll happen

one piece of advice for all : I found out its quite helpful to play with "flash strenght" . I reduced it and I get much ... realistic photos.Today I shot a portrait indoor , person first look as a ghost :d
then I reduced flash strenght and it was much better,,ofcourse you can always not use flash , but with weak flash I get best results so far.(indoor , day but with low light)

I stopped using iA ; however , those "indoor portrait" and night scenery I use quite a lot.

Bear in mind that if you adjust the Flash Output that your setting will be ignored in many of the Scenery Modes as well as in iA Mode.

dbnnet-

Is 100% correct. Any Flash Output adjustments you make will only apply when in the P or Programed Auto Mode.

Have a great day.
