Default FZ-35 settings question for Mt Climber

Hi Sarah, I am following your FZ-35 Beginners Guide.

When in P mode, should I have I.Exposure and Intelligent ISO OFF?

Also Exposure Compensation on my camera doesn't show -0.7 or +0.7, instead shows in 1/3's.

Thanks for your very informative posts, and to everyone else who contributes in this forum.

Lyn

I.Exposure and Intelligent ISO will be personal preferences, but I have always had mine turned OFF.
Exposure Compensation is indeed in 1/3's - I tend to have mine set at -1/3.

For clarification, 1/3 is about 0.3 and 2/3 is about 0.7 - It's just a different way of showing the same number.

I have Intelligent ISO off because I want more control over it. Intelligent exposure can be helpful because it applies a gentle HDR style of processing which can help with difficult lighting situations .
