I upgraded from the FZ-1v2 to the FZ-7. First impressions are all great. I love the full manual mode with the manual exposure assistance and the joystick.
I will be adding photos daily so please check back. Enjoy-Bobby

Nice shots, but..

Is there much purple fringing in some of them? It's obviously seen on "Yellowhead". Also what I noticed is a bit over-exposed images.

I'm not an expert, some others may criticise your work more precisely.

Thanks for the comments. I like many of the features of this camera, but I am not happy with the details in the feathers. I welcome any suggestions.
I have full blown Parkinson's so I am restricted to tripod/monopod and in the field camera adjustments are difficult to impossible. The FZ-7 does allow me to continue taking photos of the birds I enjoy so much. Forgive me for not saying more, but my typing is limited to one finger and much editing.
Thanks to all,
Bobby

I had the dreded purple firing when I fisrt tryed some bird shots. The telephoto Digital zoom you have to make sure your in the Ez settings, I took a good day studying each setting and the lowest settings worked well with telephoto and D-zoom. Also need with my Oly adapters.



The tele only needs to capture a small amount of the image and the ez2 3 4 ect do not degrade the image you will see more detail in feathers as well.

I recommend spending some time in one area use manual mode and go throught the settings you will soon be good at reading what ez mode to use for differant distance and zooms.

Tim, thanks for the tips. Here is my first attempt with the 3mp ez. I am pleased with the results and less blown highlights.
Thanks again-Bobby

You did it Bobby! Those look great! I was so frustrated when I put on my Oly telephoto Adapters... Then I started reading the book again and bingo the Ez mode settings. I'm glad I helped you Bobby enjoy your Birds! You'll only get better now.

Ps: I can't remember were I found it but the bird trough with water brought back something in storage. See if you can find a mirror thats round and will fit in the bottom of the tray you have water in. You may get some really neat reflections with it.



Also scout out the goodwill stores in your area for a wicker pie basket that mite fit the water tray. It will make for a more artistic shot when they are drinking and the birds feet will be in a more natural state when they sit on the edge.


This trick will also reduce sun blowouts and bright spots we all hate.
Cheers
