Not really been anywhere or taken anything post worthy but here's an interesting little shot I took while taking the dog for a walk. I was just playing about with the camera getting to grips with it and testing out the various settings. Here is something I spotted to try out my new zoom and I.S. modes. Nothing special settings wise, but a fantastic off the cuff point & click result none the less...

Can you see a butterfly?



You can with a little help from the FZ5 at 12x zoom...

It is a kick in the butt camera! I wish I could find a holster-style carrying case to make it easier to take out on hikes...

You will have fun with it!

I think either Tamrac or Lowepro makes a camera bag that straps around your shoulders and to your chest, like a harness. It puts the camera right on your chest (or your back, I believe). This way you can free up both hands while hiking, biking, etc., without fear of it swinging all over the place.

#1 wasn't really a shot it was just what I took at the same time as #2 to emphasise the zoom function, it's exactly the same shot at the same time, only one is as full wide and the other at full tele, you can make out the butterfly in #1 but only just! It just really impressed me how even in a simple situation like that nothing photo (#1) you can get a shot like #2 effortlessly just by zooming.

I love my new camera!

Hey trooplewis - I found a Centrios case at Circuit City that everything fits in except the owner's manual, and it has a belt loop. It's black all fake-leather - no cloth (looks better to me and maybe more waterproof). Only $15. Also has a handle on top and a shoulder strap. 2 compartments inside. Model CT25BLK - also on CC's website.

That's the Tamrac Velocity line. I have a Velocity 7 but its actually too small for my FZ-20 with the hood attached. If you are going to get one and if you use a hood, like the Hama, on your camera I'd opt for the Velocity 9.
