FZ15-newbie-image blurry at 12x zoom-
After all that head banging ,i finally landed up with FZ15.
last week only i got it
In low lights(its a cloudy day) at 12x optical ,the image is getting blurry...i dont know ..why..?
i have the OIS got tested both in mode1 and mode2(2 modes -still blurrry)
is this a camera problem or should i have to tweak..some thing..?
Also last week only i got the camera.
i dont know whether it works fine or not?
to my testing ,it look awesome...
are there any more things i need to ensure....?((just incase if i need to return and get a new one if there is any other problem))
any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated
You didn't answer Phil's question...
ISO is NOT shutter speed. Chances are, you're shooting photos at 1/25 of a second or slower? Only guessing. As good as the O.I.S. system is, it does have its lower limits. As a general rule, in this kind of shooting, set the ISO to "Auto," and underexpose by -1/3 to -2/3 EV. It also helps, I've found, to be shooting through the EVF (viewfinder) rather than holding the camera in front of you in the "classic" digital camera way. Shooting through the EVF forces you to hold the camera against your face, making it more stable.

My FZ20 has a jitter alert. If it shows when you press the shutter half way you will get a blurry pic. Use anything around you to steady your camera.
I shoot at wild life out the back window. I put the camera against the glass and then get nice focus. Stops shake at 12x. No jitter alert. Page 34 for the FZ20. Hold your breath! Push shutter very slowly to reduce jitter
