In the first series, #2 and #7, images of flowers against a defocused background are interesting. How did you get the flowers in focus? Did you use manual, or Spot, or ???

I've had a problem with getting these shots (just posted a new thread asking advice on how to make these shots - primary subject in mid-air with not much for the camera to register focus). Anything you can share in procedure how you made these shots?

Thanks,

P.S. These kinds of images put my efforts to shame! While really enjoying see the efforts of others, it is discouraging that my efforts are so lame. Great work!

you can do it by using spot focus then us AF/AE Lock. Lock the subject..so if you move you camera it will lock to the subject IMHO

I heard FZ40 is discontinued by Panasonic. If so, Do you think its better to buy this now from stocks ? I'm too confused in super zoom bridge cameras such as FZ40, FZ100, Fuji HS20exr, Canon SX30, Nikon P500.

Read the review done by InfoSync as ....
Quote:
the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 suffers from Entry-level Image Sensor Syndrome, and the camera's ability to shoot in RAW does not alleviate much of the lackluster image quality symptoms. What's even more discouraging is that the $100-heavier Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 has the same size sensor with different processing. This is a classic "all show and no go" scenario, and in this price range, we'd expect much better image quality than this. For the average shooter who plans on cropping and resizing, the FZ40 will be fine, but if you plan on showing your pictures in a gallery, think again.
