Hi! I am an girl from sweden and I am not very good in English, but I will give it i try..

I am wondering about getting an Panasonic FZ5 , I love to take pictures that I can put a little work behind but I also want a camera that I just kan put on auto mode and just press the button. Anyone that understand what I mean?

Is the Panasonic FZ5 a good camera for this?

If you set the FZ5 to Simple (Heart, on the dial) Mode, it should do just about everything for you. Just point and shoot...

Yes, the fz5 will give you the best of both worlds. Lots of options for trying different settings or simply put it on full auto (heart on the mode dial) and shoot away. I frequently use full auto indoors with the flash.

Technically, yes it will. However, I find focus and metering take longer this way, and isn't perfect, and as a result, shots can be missed.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I generally just set up my camera manually at the beginning of a shoot, and try to keep it on the same settings throughout. I find that by choosing your aperture and shutterspeed, pictures come off a bit faster.
