Hey Dustin and Clint this was with the yard stick against the lens and the first mark you see is actually the start of the stick not a 1/8" mark so it is about 1/32" from the end of the yard stick is where it focused...sorry I didn't have anything else to use...

I guess you rule the forum now unless I'm being misled.

No whoever figures out the macro ratio for the FZ35 & the FZ100 rules Clint! Did you go to that link Dustin posted? Holy Moly that guy is so smart he is scary...

Figured out the best indoor settings for he FZ100 so far:
Contrast +2
Sharpness +2
Saturation -2
NR -2
Taken without Flash 7ft distance FZ100 in my office with 6 X 60w Can Lights (3 behind camera X 3 infront of camera) in ceiling and one Flourescent over desk:

PP on the first NR and 2 clicks of Sharpness



PP on second: None SOOC



No PP SOOC:

here you are measuring the closest focus distance.

to get the magnification, you lay the ruler down flat and horizontal. then you get as close as you can, and line up say the left side with the zero, then wherever on the ruler you cut off on the right, you divide that into 6.18 in mms.

so if you see 0-12mm, then you have .5x, if you have 3mm you have 2x, etc.

at least insofar as i understand it.
