    I thought I'd start a new thread rather than contribute to one that has degraded into a "flame war".

    Responding to the OP's original question, why not take a step back from equipment comparisons,...

    Just double-checked the manual and camera. Per the table on P. 68, shutter speeds beyond 8 sec are only available in Manual. However, P. 79 shows that 15, 30 and 60 sec are also available in...

    Annie57,

    The instruction manual has a table showing which shutter speeds are available in which modes. The maximum exposure time available is 60 sec. I know it's available in Manual, and without...

    Hi Annie57,

    First, turn the camera on. Then, put it in manual mode (turn the mode selector wheel to M).

    The thumbwheels (on the front and back of the right side of the camera) will now select...

    Hi miltk,

    The camera's in the bedroom where my wife is already sleeping, so I can't confirm this -- BUT I believe the WB fine adjust does not work if the WB is set to AUTO. Try setting it to one...

    Another favorite...

    This was taken at "Dawn Patrol 2005" at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH. This is a scan of a 4x6 glossy print taken with a Canon A-1 with a Tokina 500MM reflex telephoto. I much prefer the FZ30....

    Yes, anti-shake is a wonderful thing and was one of the selling points of the camera for me. I keep mine on Mode 2 IS all the time.

    I think you'll find the '51 has reduction gearing for the prop,...

    More Exposure Tips

    I used to use "meter off the green grass" as a rule of thumb in my manual SLR days. It works pretty well, but it won't cope with rapidly changing lighting, like clouds passing in front of the sun. ...

    Achtung! Der Luftwaffe kommt!

    Hello bostonwolf,

    They didn't have an Me-262, but they did have this beautifully restored Me-109. First one I've seen flying with the original Daimler engine.

    Exposure settings

    Hi genece,

    Based on my film experience, I had expected underexposure problems too. However, for most of the day I found center-weighted AE with no exposure compensation did an adequate job. This...

    Well, here it is!

    This is where you will usually find it in my experience, in darker areas of the image (dark blue seems to be especially bad). This was shot at ISO 80,...

    Flaming MiG!

    Check out the afterburner on this guy, a privately-owned MiG-17. Don't know if it's part of his act or if the older jets ran this "rich" in order to keep the tailpipe cool. It was certainly...

    A formation shot

    Here are six T-6 trainers and one BT-13 (look for the wheels which aren't retractable on this one).

    This is a good illustration of the limitations of the RDS. It was easy to follow the formation...

    Bombers old and new

    This B-17 was giving rides (for $425) and also showed up well against the sky. The B-2 graced us with a couple of passes early in the show.

    FZ30 at "Thunder Over Michigan"
