All you need is a class 6 card, anything high will not be utilized by the camera. 8gb will be the smallest card I recommend as HD video clips eat up allot of room.

Get a good card, transcend, lexar, kingston, delkin, panasonic, sandisk are all good brands. Do not buy memories cards on ebay.

Extra batteries are good, I get great deals on batteries on ebay

Hello everyone,
Just got my FZ35 today and it looks great. I am a bit intimidated with all of its functions since I truly had a "Basic" camera before now. Any suggestions on where I should start? I wish it had a book manual. Thought about printing it out, but .... so many pages. Do you think going to a copy store would be worth it?

alana-

Please check Amazon. There is probably a printed Field Guide for the FZ-35. To get started:

(1) Set Auto ISO
(2) Set "P" for the Programed Auto Mode
(3) Set Spot Focus

Begin Taking Photos by:

(1) Sighting through the EVF and half depressing the shutter release until you get focus confirmation. Remember the camera will focus on the center spot on the EVF.

(2) Don't rapidly push the shutter release from the half way position to the full depression, gradually squeeze the shutter release, actuating the shutter release slowly.

(3) Check the photo you just took on your camera's LCD screen. Did you get what you wanted. If not re-shoot the photo.

That should get you started.
