Bradley and I thought that we should do a photo of me as well as him. So here is the photo Bradley took of me this morning with the FZ40.

Because Bradley has Parkison's , I increased the ISO to 400 to get a higher shutter speed to prevent any blurring. ISO 400 gave us a shutter speed of 1/160th.

What a beautiful photo! The natural color, with no harsh highlights gives such a pleasant overall wonderful result.

I think you have competition in photography!

-1 noise and +1 sharp are the settings I use. Plus keeping the aperture around f4 really helps....

I agree, ancientritual-

The "sweet spot" for the FZ40 is beginning to appear to be around F4.0 and ISO 80. If you hit that mark (remember you can use the program shift feature) you images will be rather amazing.
