Hello

I'm a Newbie witha FZ20

I use my camera most of the time forin doors, and I use a soft box when I make pictures from the product that my wife makes and sells, but my Problem is that my pictures are still little dark, I used the P mode en I tried the Schenery mode but it did'n really help , whatcan Idoto get better Quality pictures ?

I can't really use the flash light for that product.


thank you

Hi!

Try another type of light metering (Center Weighted instead of Matrix). Or, if it still dark (there's no TTL flash system in FZ20...), try exposure compensation +1/3 or +2/3 EV. Or, try flash exposure compensation. The bright scene's can easyly underexposed... With the soft box, there's hard to tell, how much light is in there...

Althrough the FZ20 metering system works better than Canon EOS300D...

You need to use manual mode. Start at ISO 100 (default) and decrease the shutter speed until you are satisfied with the result. Shutter priority may also work for you because as you decrease shutter speed more light is gathered. Plan on using a tripod or other stabilizer if you aren't already. You don't need to mess with the Ev or other stuff because in this situation they don't do anything.
