Forgot to ask. Are you using a tripod?
My hand held closeups of flowers are so hit and miss. The fault is on my end. By the time I get into the leaning over, stooping down position to take them I've introduced to much camera shake. (old age)
I need to really get a tripod.

No, I don't use a tripod, don't own one. I prefer less stuff to lug around rather than more. I take photos really for family events (fewer and fewer with the kids all grown and moved away!) and travel. I only took these flower ones to test it out.

Regarding camera shake though, I find it's difficult to hold the camera still and focus on what I want at full zoom, but the pictures still seem to turn out just fine, or at least to my untrained eye. I tend to think that a not 100% fabulous shot at zoom is more than I would have got with no zoom!

Do you currently use a camera with an articulated LCD? Would that help you with set up do you think?

Yes I also have the FZ100. I haven't used the LCD much, just for review of pictures. The problem with LCD for me is glasses on-glasses off. Off to pick out things I want to take pictures of. On to see LCD screen. Off to maybe move over a little bit for a different angle on the subject then back on to look at the LCD.... Just using the viewfinder with it adjusted for my eyes makes things easier for me.

I wear progressive lens' so it's just glasses on for me, but I'm constantly moving my head to find the "sweet spot"! I probably look like I've got "senior's shake" a bit before my time!
