Nice shot. Agreed, would have been nice to see the tail, but it's still excellent.

Nice shot GreenBaron-

Did you use FZ20 Panning scene mode?

If not, I guessit would become even harder to get good panning, for the IS tends to compensate the violent right to left camera movement someway.

Instead you should use (with 3 horiz. areas focus) the Panning Scene mode of FZ20: in this mode (as the manual states) the IS only compensates for vertical movements while not for the horizontal (panning) ones..

Not to get off track, but this airport fascinates me! It's the Princess Juliana airport on St. Martaan. Everyone that sees these photos at first usually thinks they're fakes -- I DID!

I believe, correct me if I'me wrong, IS mode 1will always compensate for vertical movement only, if panning. Because it is switched on all time, and your're panning already, it will be at it's max horizontal correction positionat the moment the shutter is depressed. So it can onlycorrect vertical jitter. The settings I used corresponded with the panning mode -I tried the panning mode, and looked back the used settings-. This is also why I think mode 2 will be deadly in pannings; it wil start correcting by the time you depress the shutter, so it's correction movement wil cause the subject to be blurred :whack:

The 3-point focus is a good idea; totally missed that one
