Nope, as the histogram only plays a part but the photographers eyes play a bigger part, this is why robots don't take photos

The photo is comprised of a very large dark area, this is skewing the photos histogram to the left, but the subject is actually well exposed, possibly slightly over, but we don't know how he/she actually looks.

Take this photo (not wishing to steal a thread but it will help with people using histograms to see that they only tell a very small portion) that I took last night on a pre wedding shoot. I only lit the face rather than the whole body, looking at the histogram it is a few stops under exposed, however if you look at the face it is properly exposed with the peak of the red channel hitting 240.

Hello, I just got the FZ-35 recently after a long debating of the G11 a 2nd hand G10, an S90 and the TZ-10. I figured I might be gambling my money on a newer camera and may not be happy so I went with the proven FZ-35 instead and after have been playing around with it for a few days, I'm loving it but I have a long way to go before I can take snaps like you all.

My main problem is I have shaky hands and the auto setting is a lifesaver most of the time, but on long zoom it makes a big blur of images. Have you faired any better with Mode 1 or Mode 2 vs Auto in Image Stabilization?

And mtclimber thank you so much for posting your guide. It has been a huge help. Do you usually use the P mode or you go full manual?

I'm an FZ35 owner who joined the forum to thank Sarah for posting her guide and tell chirantha how stunning her shots are.

I thought the reflections in the night shot and the bokeh in the botanicals particularly gorgeous.

I'd love to know what the EXIF data on those photos was.

These are gorgeous shots! The one with the hippos made me smile. Can you tell me you camera settings for the indoor (billiard table) shots?
