I got 4 x 6's done at Wal-Mart. I don't know about 5 x 7, but the 4 x 6 was great!

I have printed excellent 10" x 8" on my Epson printer and had 10" x 8" prints produced by Photobox.co.uk from this camera which prove it has a first class lens. Of cause with only 2MB you need use every pixel you have and use the optical zoom to correctly frame your shot.

I really like Fabe's last question regarding the stabilization on the Panasonic. Has anyone found any information regarding what Panasonic used to make this fantastic stabilizer or is it just a shake light? I'm getting ready to order my FZ1 but these crazy reviews from everyone continue to stray me from decision. I love the Olympus products that I do and have owned but the 2100 is simply to bulky for my taste. This panasonic seems perfect. I'm not a pro and I currently have a Nikon 775 and I dont think I have ever explored the manual features of that camera. So these comments about the FZ1 not having any manual controls really don't bother me. I want the fun of the BIG lens. Anyones help would be appreciated . Fabe have you found anything new out?

Anyone notice that the "shake light" is not on in all situations? Sometimes it's on, sometimes it's not. I can't seem to figure out what type of environment makes it come on.

Anyone else?

I have been trying to figure out the "shake" as well. Only thing I can say is that it relates to the ISO setting, but I have only had good results with this by turning the camera off and back on to make the change and then looking at the shutter speed for some kind of comparision? It does seem odd that when we have a device that is that sensitive there should be a way to respond to it?

Well I 'll have to let you know my experience with the shake light. I broke down and ordered my FZ1 today from B&H. I'm anxious to start shooting. I guess if I dont like it I'll put it up for sale. Surely this Leica backed attempt from Panasonic for such a trend setting consumer camera there is some real technology to back it up.. Maybe I'm just crossing my fingers... If anybody finds out further evidence of what Panasonic used let me know. Until then happy shooting. I'll be takeing the camera on its first trip too Disney so that should give me some real world shots.

Default Maybe

The shutter "shake" symbol popping up is the result of the 1/2 press shutter release button. On my camera I nearly eliminated the symbol from appearing by experiementing with a lighter touch for the 1/2 press. Maybe if some others would try this??? we could have an answer to the problem???
