Thought I might post some sample shots of Lumix w/ slave flash (Vivitar DF200), my latest toy, since question/sample requests seem to come up from time to time on forum about slave flashes. Highly recommended for FZ-1, 3, 15. Also, using an L-bracket (flash positioned high over lens) seems to eliminate red-eye problem (all shots hand-held):

Max zoom to 12X optical, ISO 50, 1/1300 sec, f-4, indoors -normal daylight conditions, Lumix fz1v2:


Portrait close up, shot. 35mm (non-zoom), ISO 50, 1/2000, f-8, Lumix fz1v2:


Basement, low ceiling, very dark/negligible sunlight - approx 40 feet. ISO 100, F 2.8, 1/125, Lumix FZ-1v2

Thanks Bob. Looking forward to seeing the Macro shot, Smilepak - include settings if you can, please : ) More than mucho megapixels, more often ya just need a big flash, though they're really improved the range on the new Lumixes.

BobC - she's as cute as can be - but (no offense) my guess is she's a handful. She's just got that "I'm adorable but watch it I'm a handful" look. I know this look to well, since it's my daughter's look and it lives up to its billing. Nice pics, or should I say "picks". Up to what age can you pick your nose and still look adorable?

Here are some of the examples I mentioned earlier.

ISO100 using B+W 5T Macro Lens @ 2.8 apeture. The flash is Nikon SB28DX on a slaves controller. THe main flash has a diffuser attached to the unit so the lighting isn't too direct.

Let me know what you think.
