Default FZ38 - recompose

Hi, I am bit of a newbie but keen to learn and have recently purchased FZ38. I want to understand how (step by step) I can lock the exposure and or the focus. I have look at the manual but I am a little confused.

Also does anyone know of any good resources online or in printed format that focus on using this camera -the manual is so dry!

Thanks in advance.
Simon

Hi sgrech, welcome to the forum. Sarah Joyce (mtclimber) has an excellent beginners guide to the FZ35/38. If you search for her threads on this forum you should be able to find it.

Thanks - I have looked at the threads started by Sarah but have not really found any tutorial resources - have sent her a private message.

Anyone able to shed light on recomposing shots?

look in the manual for AF / AE Lock. I did a quick google on the manual and found European version of the manual - AF/AE is on page 141 in the "advanced" section.
