Default Panasonic FZ35

I just bought a Panasonic FZ35. I know absolutely nothing about photography, as I have always used point and shoot cameras. I am going to Ireland/Scotland in a 1.5 months and wanted to have amazing pictures to bring back. So any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Hi jinh

Look through some of the message with "New fz35/38" in there titles.

Sarah has posted a beginners guide for your camera, it tells you about the camera and how to use it. Also strongly recommended is to set camera to "P" (program mode)

Sarah also recommends resetting some settings :-

Contrast =0
Sharpness = +2
Saturation = -1
Noise reduction = -2

This won't give you instant great Photo's, but will give you a better chance of getting those good shots
