Just curious what your initial thoughts are about the FZ35?

Yes... I had to set my flash intensity to -0.3 to stop that "ghost" effect on
people. The flash is a tad too bright.

Dropmyload, to be honest, Indoor shots for me are still a hit or miss affair with more misses than hits.
the nice shots i have got indoors are mostly on P auto where have moved away from the subject a few yards to reduce the "flattening" effect of the flash and then zooming in.

I've been covering my flash with tissue..... Let me figure out how to reduce flash intensity ( I'm not the manual Reading type.....)

to reduce/increase flash output on the fz35, just press +/- button ( top button ) several times until "flash" appears then press the left button to reduce or right button to increase.

When I do that it says exposure. Assuming they mean flash intensity ??

press the button THREE times quickly. it will say "flash" then adjust it. If you press it once, it will say "exposure" , on pressing it twice it will say "auto bracketing"
