Hey, I just purchase the DMC-F7, and so far am very very pleased with it. However I am new to the higher-end and manual controls. I am used to just a point-n-shoot pocket camera.

I was wondering if I could just get some info on what your favorite feature(s) are on this camera and why. Anything from the best mode for night shot to anything advanced.

Thanks!

Well, let me start it off to narrow this thread down. One thing I'm looking for is suggestions on what you guys have found to be the best setting for night shots. Anything from a downtown in a big city picture to one where light is a lot less.

The presets do a fantastic job at night shots, Did you read the whole manual yet? I'm still reading it and I got mine in Feburary...

Do you know what DOF means? With out hitting google right now to find out?

The manual covers everything just about and should be read. Manual focus is easy and the presets are great.

I used sports mode at first and it held me while I learned, Now I use only Manual mode cept night shots as said above.

Hi I'm also just get my FZ7 few days ago
One thing I found out on night shot, I set to manual mode F 8.0, shutter speed 60 second, and I get a nice effect of the starry light effect
Below sample no pp, just resize.

I love my FZ7. This shot was taken in P mode...no time to set up the shot. Had to shoot quickly before my dog caught sight of him and chased him away.

love everything about this camera. Outside, it rivals my nikon d50, and it's so nice and small and light...it's become my favorite accessory! I take it with me everywhere!

Enjoy your new camera!
