Default First pics from my fz45

Hi, everybody, just received my fz45, started clicking immediately, these are just stupid pics, but i value ur opinions, all shot in my room under yellow bulb, these may not be pretty, but nonetheless show camera quality, dont ask me settings as all are shot in P mode with little playing with iso settings & flash

Welcome to the forum.
What ISO did you have it set to? Images 2 and 3 show a bit of noise. Overall good first photos.

Welcome to the Forum, dryspuri-

You're off to a good beginning. The FZ40/45 seems to have "sweet spot" when the aperture is around and near F 4.0 and the ISO setting is ISO 80. That "sweet spot" provides the greatest image quality and the least noise.

We are glad to have you join us. We a friendly group and help is always available.

dryspuri-

You are a good observer/student. You have already keyed into the "sweet spot" approach to the FX40/45 that will always yield very good photos. Congratulations.

You can change shutter speeds in the FZ40/45 with the Program Shift feature. I don't remember for sure if the FZ35/38 also has that feature. Alternatively, you can select the Shutter Preference Mode, the "S" Mode on the Mode Selection Dial and select the desired shutter speed there.
