Thanks, Ned, for the positive feedback. I am glad you like the shots and the video.


@dbnnet and Paul,

Also many thanks for the encouraging comments. I attach below the original photos - you will see that some post processing was involved. Post processing is so easy with the included software that the camera is set up in a manner not aiming at printing the shots directly. In particular contrast and saturation are reduced to a maximum - so the original pictures are rather flat, which provides more opportunities for adjustments during post processing - I also prefer somewhat underexposed shots in order to prevent burning out of light areas. Still the pictures from the camera are a very good basis and I think the FZ35 did a very good low light job in this case - as all pictures were taken in a rather dark museum - all objects were behind or under glass - and pictures were taken handheld. (I agree with you, dbnnet, that the FZ35 is a great low light camera - in contrast to what is written so often)

Here are the details on the camera set up and the exposure conditions:
I have a custom set up for low light conditions:
- P mode
- picture size reduced to 8 MP
- intelligent iso: on
- iso limit set: 200
- picture adjust: contrast -2, sharpness +1, saturation -2,
noise reduction +2

When I shot the pictures I used exposure bracketing set to a maximum - so that three pictures were taken with three different exposures - this also reduces shaking during pressing the button because the last two pictures are taken with the button still pressed down.

details of the different pictures:

shell:
shutter - 1/50 sec
apr - f/3
iso - 80
focal length - 6 mm
spot metering

beans:
shutter - 1/30 sec
apr - f/3.2
iso 200
focal length - 9 mm
spot metering

gingko:
shutter - 1/30 sec
apr - f/2.8
iso 125
focal length 4.8 mm
spot metering

The spring is overwhelming me and it is a lot of fun to capture this with the FZ35. I attach some pictures of a cherry tree. More of them are found in an animation on vimeo:

Some great compositions there. They look easy to take but the experience of the photographer comes out in those pictures. The detail on the conch shell, is amazing.
