WOH! Fantastic images.
Now I'm falling in love with Fz150.
But again Fujifilm has come up with a 2/3" XS-1.

Also now have a apples-to-apples comparison between Canon SX40 HS VS Panasonic Fz150 @ http://n2hobbes.com/camera-compare/index.html

What to do ?

What a great set of images. I love to see the details on animals, and these images do a great job. Color, clarity, are very well done.

Default Shooting mode?

Amazing quality photos, as we always see from you! I looked at your exif date- it said they were shot in auto... really?? I can't imagine you weren't at least in program?? Just curious as to how you were shooting with this camera... whatever you're (always!) doing, you do it great!!

Whatever camera you pick up, it turns to gold! Ridiculously sharp images!!

So, is this your favorite FZ so far?

Still shooting it Saly and adjusting, I'll see how it goe after 30 days or so, but it looks like a great birding camera, which I love to do...

Thanks everyone for the kind remarks, but the camera did most of the work here...

Hi, I have also the cam.. so I am curious.
Are you using manual settings? if not what is the best "setup for the cam´for all-round pics?

I shoot in P mode ....

Any help is welcome

Use "A" Mode until you understand how Aperture affects shutter speed...if I control the Aperture I can control the shutter speed within certain limitations and I always like to keep the shutter speed high as possible and still get a correct exposure...
Set to +1 Sharp and -1 Noise Reduction use Standard Mode...ISO max 400...Turn off iResolution and iDynamic...Steady your camera ANY way possible to insure you do not shake it when depressing the shutter...
1/320 Shutter Speed is required to freeze a person walking at a normal pace and may still blur some (I said minimum I like 1/500 minimum for moving subjects)...
IF your subjects are still of course any shutter speed will do as long as they do not move...and you do not shake the camera...

Use a Monopod or Tripod I do a lot...best way to get rock steady sharp shots...I am old and I drink too much coffee...lol...post some photos and there are plenty of great folks here that will assist in any way possible...

I am still learning EVERY dad-blasted time I pick up a camera...lol...and then I forget what I learned and still end up with crummy shots!
