From a Newbie's point of view, this camera is awesome. I read the instructions and took about 30 shots of different things. My favorite pic so far is one of my cats. I read the pic information and all I can tell you is the settings were Shutter 1/4 - Aperture 3.2 - ISO 200 - No flash just room lighting. I was holding the camera myself. Manual focus I think?

Needless to say.... I am very impressed with this camera.

Welcome to the forum, Zake. Cool shot the way the cat's eyes mirror the (mirror?) table. That image stabilization is something else, isn't it? I don'tdetect much noise here, either. Looking forward to see some more shots. Enjoy your new friend!

Congratulations.

I like the no-flash effect, really better than artificial light, even with the pinkish hue on the cat fur.

Possible tip:
Try to resize the full 8Mp images by even submultiples (of 3264 x 2448):
maybe at 816 x 612, after sharpening, the aliasing on the cat's vibrissae will show less than at the odd submultiple of 800x600.

Excellent Pic Zake

I'm still a newbie I've got the FZ20 have had for a 6 months now I've been trying to take pics ofour Ferrets but the buggers wontstay still long enoughha ha ha

But i have got some pretty good pics of them I've just started playing around with the shutterspeed thingamy It's a lot to take in but i guess practice hopefully will help.

most of the shots have been outside on a sunnyday. That makes your shot all the better for being indoors Welldone.
