Default FZ100 Shots

A few more FZ100 shots.

First 2 to show off the zoom - look in the middle of the picture of number 1 - there is a 4 wheeler there - number 2 shows it.









The next 2 are macros.









The last was taken at dusk - using a tripod - .8 seconds - ISO 100 (it was getting dark!)

I was fifty feet away from them on that shot.

But there is hope for you - here's how you can tame a frog.

I did - this is the second time around - LTZ was getting such good shots with his I wanted to try again.

Amazon has a 30 return policy, so I'll see if I keep the FZ40 or FZ100.

Clint if you don't mind, I have a few questions.

- Do you shoot 16:9 from the get go?
- In the latter shots is that macro zoom?
- the zoom shots, was it max optical zoom at lowered megapixel resolution?
- Which tripod do you use? I'm curious because I want a portable one rather than a heavy expensive studio one.

1 - Yes - I have a 16:9 hidef TV and monitor so that's the way I like viewing them.
2 - #3 & 4 are macro shots - #5 is a zoom shot
3 - the first one no zoom - #2 full zoom (no pixel lowering it was 24X)
4 - #1-4 I used a Slik monopod - #5 was using a Slik U-212 tripod

Good shots!
BTW, I don't find any use of the Macro Zoom (digital zoom?) function in FZ35.
It's always grainy.
Tele Macro gives better results.

We must keep in mind that at full WA, the object will look much further than it actually is. Nonetheless, it's a good zoom with decent resolution.
