Since I have only had it for a day I'm still learning the differences from Baby Fuzzy.

LTZ-

It appears that the FZ-40 is shaping up to be the star among the three cameras.

All excellent.

Some times when the camera can't focus on a very close subject, I point it elsewhere far away and half-press the shutter. This seems to reset the lens somehow and then it will focus on the close subject (assuming the camera is within the minimum focus distance to the subject and not closer).

Thanks for all the kind words...it's fun walking into God's creatures' world and having the photos to share when I get back...

The children really love seeing things up close they can't see with their own eyes...

And yes the FZ40 is looking very good, still learning it though...

Quick info please.
I am wondering how good are monopods since you still have to hold them with your hand and that means shaking.
I don't get it.

I know I get better focused pictures if I use one as opposed to hand held. But I'm lazy and I don't forget to carry it.

It's less shaking than the hands but doesn't eliminate all of it.

Cole - is there a way to choose the ISO in FZ40 in macro mode rather than letting the camera choose it?
