    SVT, I think you misunderstand the way a lot of people feel:
    The FZ20 is a great camera, but it has a lot of really annoying shortcomings. They're well-known enough to prevent me from listing them....

    A Panasonic rep should be reading, and paying close attention to this thread! :mad:

    FZ20 noise is still noticable at 80 and 100 IMO. Besides, either camera can produce fine 4x6-8x10 prints. If you're going to post process either way for larger prints, then you might as well own the...

    I for one thought it was a fantastic review - spot on, in my opinion. You did a great job of illustrating the noise problem in 'real life' situations, and saying who should and should not have a...
  5. Tamrac Velocity 7 Review (New case for my FZ20)

    I took the liberty of ordering myself a Tamrac Velocity 7 "sling pack" carrying case for my FZ20. I've had it unprotected since I bought it over a month ago, and my upcoming honeymoon in San Diego...

    Whoa, you're absolutely right!! It's not incredibly faster, but it is quite noticable and will come in very handy. Great tip, thanks a bunch!

    Awesome shot! Yes, the more the merrier! The long zoom definately helps. My shots were actually not with full telephoto - these ducks were found in a local park where the animals are all very...

    Ahh sorry for mentioning manual focus - didn't realize it was the FZ5.

    Genece - that's a good point - nothing in the image is really in focus. But in fact, it almost looks more like motion blur...

    Thanks all. Yes, the white one (actually a goose?), was very noisy - doing a plain "quack" about once a second for a long time. My fiance could hear them quite plainly ;)

    A few duck close-ups

    SVT's tips are right on. You just have to remember that the faster the shutter speed, the less light gets in. "S" mode helps with this because it adjusts the aperture automatically based on...

    A mix. I took a lot of shots in P (Program) mode that day, though I did a lot of playing with ISO/WB/saturation/etc. I did take a number of shots in either aperture priority, shutter priority, and...

    Thanks guys. I see your points. Jcon, I get your drift, no worries :)
    I know it's not that bad in low ISO's with good lighting, but like I said over at Steve's Forums, I think I was so excited about...

    So is the telephone pole really bent like that? I would think it's distortion (first impression anyway). And the high-res versions shows some soft edges, in my not-so-expert opinion.

    Cool still :D

    Yeah, I know better than to expect 100% awesome shots every time. It's just harder than I expected based on the hype of this camera. My ratio of great shots with my previous 5MP "point and shoot"...

    I've noticed a 'warm' look to a lot of my pictures, but that depends greatly on the lighting. Many of my evening outdoor shots, with a low, orange sun end up being pretty 'warm' in nature, but that...

    Hmm, I would think that you could just aim at something beyond the point of infinite focus (not sure what the exact length is - isn't it like 16ft at full wide angle?). Even without the exact range...

    The pillar on the right is exactly where I asked my Fiance to marry me. It looked just like this. Do you still have a hi-res version of this?

    Thanks :)
