how did you get the digital zoom to kick in without the optical being maxed out? did you do some kind of PP to this image? it seems awful dim. you should be able to get clear, well exposed moon shots at f8, with shutter speeds of 1/125-1/200 or even faster on a bright night. also use a tripod and the self-timer or a remote shutter release to elminate shake.

55.2 mm is themaximum optical zoom.

I suggest not to use the digital zoom. And the picture will be sharper if you not set the aperture to f8.

oops.. sorry. iwas thinkingthe FZ3 had the samefocal length as my FZ20 has, which would give it a focal length of 72mm at max optical zoom...

as for the image being sharperif you use a wider aperture than f8... i disagree. the shot below was taken at f8, ISO 100, 1/200 sec., shot from a tripodat 12x optical zoom with no digital zoom used.

ISO 100 on your exif



If you can change it at least to ISO 400 that will help you alot.
