Default FZ100 at car show

Took the new camera (aka Big Fuzzy) to the car show yesterday, here are the results. For other FZ100 owners still trying to tweak things: no pp, all in 'P' mode, settings = Contrast +1, Sharpness +1, Saturation +1, NR -1.

Nice shots. These are impressive, but again at low ISO setting.

yes, very deliberately at iso 200 b/c of recommendations of others. Would there have been any advantage to have used a higher iso setting?

I like the angles you chose. Another poster mentioned that he took pics as the cars arrived for a change. I tried it. I was hoppin' but got a few special shots. I'm gonna add in that "hood with legs" into my standard car shot repertoire. Another thing I do, you don't have to, is edit out the plate numbers.

I'm curious on that to. What would be the advantage on using higher ISO settings on outside daytime, non-moving objects? Wouldn't you want to use the lowest ISO setting on these type of pictures no matter what camera you had.

ddandb-

The car show is a perfect setting for a low setting, that is very true. However, speaking in terms of photo samples in general, at some point in time it would be very nice to see how the FZ-100 handles higher ISO settings.

For example how would the FZ-100 handle this ISO 800 photo:

Like it or not, at some point you are going to be inside, you cannot use flash, and you will have to increase the ISO. I would just like to know in advance, that's all.
