Hi, I have a question regarding taking pics at full zoom. I have tried taking pics using the Minolta Z3 (12Xzoom) and the Panasonic FZ5 (12X zoom) at full zoom. For both cameras, when I zoom at a object farther away it gives a very blurred image on the LCD, needless to say when the pic was taken it was also blurred.
However when I used my S5500 (10X zoom) to zoom at the same object in the same distance the LCD showed a very sharp and clear image and the pic taken was also sharp.
Some say that because the camera is shaking thats why at 12 X zom it is blurred but the Z3 and the FZ5 both have anti shake technology and I was holding all 3 cameras the same way with minimal shaking.
Regarding the pressing down the shuter halfway first, how long do we have to hold it in the half down position before ti can get a clear image cos I can seem to do so?
Can anyone explain?
