Nice shot! In macro ? Now does this mean you got yourself a '30?

Cheers

Yep Harj gone for the FZ30 I wanted more control i.e. full manual and exposure lock and manual focus
the FZ1 good as it is does not have those features.

All up its a great camera

What stands out........

1. Very clear HI RES EVF / LCD
2. Flip out LCD
3. Manual Zoom ring very smooth (Only needs the index finger to operate)
4. EZ modes giving up to 19.1X zoom
5. Instant startup (no lens extension)
6. If you set bracketing on it stays set that way till you turn it off
7. RAW file format
8. Sharp lens

Its large yes but ergonomics are very good, a bit heavy yes but not a problem.

BJ the succulent was shot in 3MP mode
