Great FZ-1 on shots over at DP Review. Funny this is considered a 'Revival". I bought mine way back in June when the only other option was the 10. :G

Congratulation and an excellent openingsalvo there, nooner. Fantastic deal at $150. Get yourself a 55mm hoya r72 (~$40 delivered) and take that shot. Cool tool!

What a deal mine cost 5x more in Aus with 64meg 18 months ago.

Interesting you like -1/3 stop to 2/3rd Fred. Need to explore that.

I allways use the hood adaptor with hoya UV filter and the hood, I find this extension allows the left hand to wrap around and give great stability. this better than clasping the body on each side.

The FV1 to FZ2 firmware is cool.

Manual focus would be nice, manual exposure control / locking too would be nice... it still gets the shots tho' left to its own AE...

First time FZ10/15/20 users that later get the FZ1 seem to like them despite less features and less mega pixels.

The FZ1 was a trend setter
12x zoom
OIS
nice looks ... not like a hair dryer (Nick) ;-)
rotary mode dial knob
4 way button
li-ion battery
sharp optics.

I would defintetly get the yoshida (preferably the 295), particularly if you're considering using a larger converter such as the tcon17. With frequent on-off of filters the plastic stock adapter is sure to wear out.

FZ1v2 exposure.
Fred Fmoore suggested and he has used the FZ1 extensively, I therefore wanted to see what his recommendation of - 1/3 or - 2/3 EV underexposure.
I took a yard scene ... my dear mothers ... sunny day some cloud side lighting.
3 shots
1 O
2 -1/3
3 -2/3 < this looks best >

for other lighting adj. may vary...

resized only to 720 X 540
