Default What's your Fn Button Programmed Too

Right now I have my Fn button programmed to ISO but I am finding I can't switch ISO in Aperture Priority mode like I could with my Canon SX110.

What are people favorite funtion to put on the Fn Button ?

Mine is programmed to review of photo. This stays for 3 or 5 seconds and goes back to shooting mode. But this is helpful because, you don't have to toggle the play and camera switch every time to review the picture !! saves switch life !!

Mine is programmed to review as well. Actually I use it a lot. Much easier to review photos using Fn button. You can also scroll between photos after pressing Fn.

I shoot only in manual mode on my FZ35, so I keep it on ISO.

It's such a great camera, and especially that on a consumer level camera they included a DSLR-level feature such as the programmable Funct. button. My TZ1, FZ18 and FS7 and ZS3 can't/couldn't do that!

The more I use the FZ the more I discover it's little "secrets". Like did you know you can program a permanent Auto-White Balance override adjustment? I hear complaints all the time on other cameras about not being able to do that.

I LOVE my ZS3 :-) but at times if the conditions (or my own desire for creativity) demand it, the FZ can go where others can't.

One more thing, I sometimes change the programming for the AE/Af lock button. It can be really handy to lock either the focus or metering separately to the shutter half-press eg shooting through a fence.

Oh yes, I set my Funct. button to Pr3eview also - saves that switch a bit of wear and tear too. You can delete and zoom in this mode too which is very handy. And you don't need to re-press it to take a photo, just a half-press of the shutter button returns the FZ to shooting mode instantly!

Love my FZ35 :-)))

PS But I really would like it if Panasonic introduced via firmware update the ability to set the Picture Adjustment Menu to the Funct. button...
