Default Wow, I'm inspired!

You are getting amazing results with Big Fuzzy. You've inspired me to photograph more than just my grand kids and bird dogs.

I'll probably take another thousand pictures of my bird dogs this fall but I think the new burst modes will be an inspiration for me to try some new things. I know I'll enjoy the bursts during the Fall Little League games,... if I get mine before the short season ends.

Thanks for all your beautiful pictures and informative posts about the FZ100. You've sold me!

Jack

Very nice capture. The second shot is better exposed (we can see the water fountain) at the expense of a slightly brighter sky. You can very easily fix that in Picasa by increasing the saturation only on the top half of the picture.

How would you do the top half only?

Cole - when you use your FZ100 for macros which stabilizing mode are you using?

I went to the "cement pond" yesterday with Big Fuzzy, took 151 shots but only got a few keepers. Many had "focus" issues. Used the monopod most of the time.

AV - Mode 2 - +1 to +2 Contrast +2 Sharp +1 Sat -1 to -2 NR...set to AF Macro...zoom in and focus...sometimes it will give you the green light but it is "backfocused" on the greenery or ground, etc...so you have to back up the focal length until the subject is in clear focus...also check the photos on the LCD that you are focued...for some reason if you zoom too close the camera won't give you the red out of focus instead it will go ahead and focus on what ever is available within the frame I.E. backfocus...were you using spot focus and spot metering?...I even found with Spot Focus it can happen at times...

I use "spot focus" (I really like the FZ35 version much better). I'll try more spot metering.
I was using the Vibrant film mode but most were a bit dark on the exposure.
Think I'll try Nature next - it looks a bit lighter than vibrant but slighter darker than Standard.
I'm not sure what effect the focus button has on the barrel. If I'm in the macro mode do I need to change it manually on the barrel to AFflower or will it make a difference if I just leave it in the AF position?
I had +2 for sharp and -2 for NR - I'll give the other settings a try.
