    No, you haven't modified your original file.

    However, a better way to do it would be to open up the file you want to edit, then click Image > Duplicate Image which will open up a new image window...

    If you want good photo transfer software for free, get "cam2pc"

    The battery life on your FZ20 does not sound too bad to me. The 240 photos quoted refer to the CIPA standard of battery life, which does not allow for hours of camera use without taking photos.

    I would say that there is noise (some) in all ISOs, but it is not a problem til you get to 400ISO. I wasn't sure b4 buying either, but I'm not too worried now.

    Jpg

    When I first got my FZ20 I did some tests with the relative quality of JPG and TIFF files. The TIFF files are huge (17MB) and slow the computer down like you said, and I didn't think the quality was...

    Yes and no

    Yes, I think saturation is a factor in the amount of noise that we get in images. However, your second picture is very desaturated - more so than I would want any of my images to look.

    Good deal

    Sounds like a very good deal. John Reed's advice is good. I'd just watch out for scratches. And display models get lots of sticky inquisitive fingers on them.

    Great new adaptors

    Hey Gene,

    those new rings look great! something I wished (a little while ago) that I could buy. But do you think they would be too limiting, in that you can't fit accessories to them?

    52mm adaptor

    Hi there people, I've just found a really good price on a 52mm adaptor for my FZ20 (at a shop in Australia).

    I think I will buy it, but can anyone tell me of any problems I might have with a 52mm...

    Exposure compensation

    Changing the ISO setting will not change the exposure of your pictures. It will just let your camera use a different aperture/shutter speed combination.

    If you want to lighten a photo, you should...

    Right

    Yes, thats right. Just note that you don't have to get the hood if you don't want to (I probably won't).

    Nice to have that complicated thread simplified a bit!

    Use P mode to start with, and then go on to A or S if you feel like it. S just lets you set the shutter speed to a speed you know is safe, and then the camera will worry about whether it can find an...

    Don't worry

    I don't think the jitter sign you are getting is a problem. It is not a measure of the amount to shake in the camera, its just a warning that you are using a low shutter speed that the OIS may not be...

    Does anyone know if this b-300.com place is reliable?

    No better way

    No, I haven't found a better way. It is a pity there is no lock, but we will just have to manage with prefocussing, and then half-pressing before reframing.

    FZ20 Spot Meter

    Have been using my FZ20 on spot a little lately and it seems to be a very unusual spot mode. My idea of a spot meter is that it makes anything you point it at middle grey. This one seems...
