Default Are There Any ZS3 Users in the Group?

We want to welcome the Panasonic ZS3 users here to the Panasonic P+S folder.

Like the FZ35, the ZS3 incorporates more excellent Panasonic quality.

Beside, the FZ35, I also shoot with the ZS3 ans the ZR1. Here is a ZS3 photo sample.

Have a great week end.

Hi there, Ordo-

That is a nice set of photos. Well done! I thought you were in Argentina, but the last of your photos looks like, China, perhaps.

I was in China last year, on holidays. I live in Argentina. All the picks are from the mountain Huashan, already posted in Landscape forum.
An extreme example of Macro (a selfportrait):

You are correct, Ordo-

That is extreme. Here is another ZS3 photo.

love the boat shot sarah, and the indoor shot was handled well, despite a very mixed lighting.

Thanks Hards80.
Sarah: nice pick. As you already know, the ZS3 has the reputation of not doing well under bad lighting or indoors (yes: flash sucks). This one had to go through severe manipulation (denoised, sharpened, leveled, cropped, etc.) but the tricky pick's not bad for a cheap p&s.

Ordo-

Now you have ventured into one of my favorite areas:slave flash lighting. Here is a photo taken with my Panasonic FZ-28 from a distance of 50 feet. The ZS3 would work the very same way.

ordo-

It is done with a set-up just like this: The flash unit to the side is triggered by the camera's own built-in flash going off. It doubles or triples the flash power, resulting in a very good photo. That particular slave flash is the Canon HF-1, which can be used with any camera with a built-in flash unit.
