FZ20

Shot at ISO 400 at 1/1300 burst mode. I just realized today that f2.8 is the only aperture that allows 1/2000.


I'm trying to get the bird in focus as he leaves the cone. may be able to if he leaves at 90 degrees. Any tips or comments?

I think you either made a typo or you have it backwards.. At 1/2000 you can only use f8..

Your right Jeff; I typed what I wanted the camera to do. f2.8 fastest shutter 1/1000.

... did you remove the noise? Because for ISO 400, this don't look bad a'tall.

Nick...I haven't been using 400 because all I've read is that there is too much noise. I took about 20 shots today that turned out real nice when I had enough light to shoot at 1/1300. I did a slight noise reduction in the second pic trying to clear some of the blur.

Tell ya what, I got more noise at slower shutter speeds using lower ISOs than you got here. Perhaps the usage of 400 iso's in these cameras is fast shutter speeds with lots of light, instead of using this setting in low room lighting/no flash.

Nice shots. If the lumens are high, ISO 400 is fine. I have learned to live with the noise since I never use flash. I may start experimenting with fill flash but not when I need the shot.
