Laurie, Here is my first night shot with the FZ1. It's not much of a picture. They had the lights turned off on the cross with the stain glass tonight. It sits above the doors in the glass room. I went on and took a pic of the building anyway. I saw it on last night and thought it was beautiful. I should have taken the shot then :angry:

Fox,

What settings did you use? Also was there any post-processing done?

Thanks for the help.

I took that one in AE mode P, I think. I'll check and see. I also took a few in the Aperture priority mode. They looked close to this one. Setting are f5.6, Exposure was -1/3, White balance was set to auto, and ISO was set to 50. Spot mode was set to off. Pict adj. set to standard. and I used a tripod. Hope this helped you out. Have a good night......

Forgive me for my ignorance, but is all this information you posted above contained with in the camera/jpg file? Or did you write it all down. I for one could never remember all this. If you did you're good, damn good!

I only wish my memory was that good:?: Yes that information is in the picture. It's called the EXIF information. There are a few free readers out there you can use. Seems like someone posted a few link a while back. Try the search button at the top of this page and see what comes up.

Here is two links to get you started

I have used the Ifranview. It's pretty nice.

Sorry I didn't answer all of your question Laurie. The only post-processing done is, Resize and light, VERY light sharpening. Pictures get a little soft when I resize for some reason. I would say that the full image looks very close to that picture. Maybe a little better.

Thanks for the help. This is the first digital camera that has given me this much control - so I am using it as "training wheels" before I take the plunge into getting a Digital SLR. Right now I am limited on the number of pictures that I can take due to the amazingly limited size of the 8mb SD card that came with the camera - never fear though - the 1gb SD card is due to arrive on Monday.

I will post better pictures when I get a chance to take this hiking.
