Here are some more shots I took on my new FZ5.
Still mostly take in P mode as don't have a manual to carry around with me yet in English!
Took about 100 pics during the day at lunch and after in Covent Garden but my 512mb SD card has failed me and half of the photos are not read by my computer even if they show on the camera...mysterious!I don't kknow what happened there. Has this happened to anyone else I wonder?
The following were taken in a tea shop in Covent Garden in natural light except for the one with tea in cups I used the flash.
The flash is very strong in FZ5...too strong in some shots I tried...
I also discovered that when doing 12x etc a tripod is still necessary mostly unless you have something to lean on as even the anti shake does nto stop blurryness in most pics even if some are ok.
But that is propably my in experience of holding such a light to touch camera!
Still very happy with it though....

might be just me, but these look a little soft... any PP done at all, or were these straight from the camera?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"yes, using a tripod or some kind of brace is a good idea when shooting at 12x, even with OIS... the stabilizer is a big help, but 12x magnifies even the slightest jitter and can make the shot look blurry, so bracing against something solid is always a good idea if you can.

Soft is encouraging. The primary complaint in the reviews was that the pictures were too sharp and caused jaggies.(now there is a technical term, I'm sure!)

Yes. These were straight from the camera via photoshop. I just clicked autolevels and optimized for web at 25%.

Here a demonstration how hard I found to keep still for 12x zoom handheld...Most shots unusable so leaning against something or tripod is necessary.

Thanks for the flash advise...will check how to do that!

12x Zoom on the street in London's Covent Garden. Just on P setting again. I note quite a bit of grain in this...
