Stumbled upon Barking Abbey, Barking, London - who would have thought they would have one there but they do and luckily I had the FZ10 with me at the time. All shots hand held, full manual control, just minor USM.

I'd love to move to OZ and get some sunny weather! Just a question about the last pic and the sky - what filter would you use to stop the sky going completely white or should I have metered off somewhere else in the scene? I know I could do it in photoshop but I'd rather try and find a way of doing it with the cam.

Ok its a bit overexposed bracket
1. + or - 2/3 ev
or try
2. - 2/3
assumning you are metering mostly foreground.
3. you could try spot metering and select a mid grey area on the abbey check the reading, point to the sky see what ev you get for that, make a decision based on the two readings and also bracket as I have outlined.
I think peeps have the FZxxs set to a -EV like I have the FZ1 set always to -1/3 ev think fz10 / 20 should be as much as - 2/3ev
Ok but if its a drab day then less bais on the - direction.

Shoot Shoot and shoot even in the back garden experiment. check results on puter.

An initial - EV can help FZ's tend to oever exp.
Others here in forum may Advise.

I agree with John on both bracketing and using -2/3 ev on the FZ20 especially with lighting conditions like you had.:idea:

Thanks for the advise guys - I normally keep the FZ exposure to -2/3 but for some reason which I can't remember I set it to 0. I'll try the bracketing as well.
