Nice candle shot, I would love to see if you can get more detail of the actual flame but the glow from the flame is nice and warm.

I am wondering even if the naked eye could see as much detail as your camera lens did.

I am having quite a challenge bringing details to whites in my photos.

Thanks for sharing.

Default Minimum focus distance

If you go walk up too close to the object/person, rather than stand back further & zoom in, then you may get a red symbol/frame flashing, on the lcd, which is the camera telling you that it cant focus.

If you get a green box/frame coming up, just before you take the pic that means it is focus.

Also put the image stabiliser on either 1 or 2 , that will help you to keep the camera steady

For all cameras you need to keep 1 & sometimes 3 ft away, when your using the zoom , otherwise the optics find it hard to focus.

Another tip to keep the camera steady.
Hold the camera steady with 1 hand. And use your other hand to gently touch the shutter. That helps for my pics

Heres my favourite FZ38 pic, which was handheld , just using programme mode



I have lots of pics here
