Default Shooting Indoors Using Existing Light

Here is a nice photo of my husband Bradley taken in our Great Room as the Olympics were going on. I used the program mode, it was hand held and the exposure was F 3.7 at 1/30th of a second, using ISO 400.

Here is another no flash/existing light only photo taken with the Panasonic FZ-35.

I had to provide a comparison photo of two cameras. So I used a single 100w light bulb overhead. The attached photo was taken with the FZ-35 using existing light and exposure of F 2.8 at 1/4 second with ISO 400. It was a hand held shot with incandescent/tungsten WB.

Sarah,
Bradley's picture looks really good for indoor shot IMHO(and hopefully he feels better) and Thank You for sharing it. Sorry for being out of subject, but knowing that you are shooting with both Panasonic and Sony I just wonder what is your opinion on which Super Zoom handles indoor shooting better - FZ35 or HX-1? Thank you.

When we speak about sony...in one forum in my language, one guy just bought newcommer ,http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...52921666073335

that camera has obviously nothing to do with fz38, but just wanted to show you "shooting using existing light indoor" capabilty.

Steve-

Well I will tell you what: I will take a photo today with the Sony HX-1 of Bradley today, and you can make the judgment. Perhaps it my inexperience with the HX-1, but I would reach first for my FZ-35 because I know exactly what kind of photo I am going to get.

With the HX-1, it is always something of a crap shoot. Sometimes, I am pleasantly surprised and sometimes I end up attempting to really analyze why the photo came out that way it did.

Hrvoje-

The Sony TX-7 like the TX-1 before it, is a good camera and it is capable of good low light level photos. The photo of the cat is sharply focused, but it is spoiled by the use of the incorrect white balance. If I had used automatic white balance on the photo of the two cameras instead of the incandescent/tungsten WB setting my photo would also have looked all yellow-ish as well. In the cat photo, the incorrect WB was selected.

Have a good day both of you.
