Hello everyone.

I am now in your team. I just bought a new digicam, a Panasonic DMC-FZ3.

I couldn't afford the FZ20 so i went for the FZ3. What a difference with my ex-Kodak CX6330.

BTW what is a good setting on shooting the moon? I saw nice ones here of the moon taken with a FZ.I tried last night but didn't come out too good.

Thanks

Stephan

Welcome. I'd help you with the moon shot but I'm having trouble myself. Still looking for a PS plugin to remove the tan lines.

depends a bit on the phase of the moon. a full moon is much brighter, and requires different settings. for a brightfull moon, try f8 @ 1/250, or maybe 1/200. as the moon wanes, you'll need slower shutter speeds. even at 1/250, use a tripod and the self timer to eliminate any trace of shake... at 12x, the slightest jitter is amplified.

Make sure your using a tripod and check the menu and turn the OIS off, apart from that your ready to go.
