    u got to set at F2.8 which mean wider. As the depth of field would decreased rather then setting at F8 which mean it focus further.

    I think that's good price, very useful free cards (normal speed is still respectable).

    FZ5 is got all the respectable features, compared wif many new ones.

    Just came back fr taiwan. Took P mode snaps of night market without flash, in iso400. (even day shot, by accident)

    I used the FZ5 too, is really a very gd camera. But I read from reviews that FZ7 isn't really a significant upgrade from FZ5. The ISO performance is even worse than FZ5. The higher ISO like 800 and 1600 is not recommended to use as the pictures lose too much details due to the heavy noise reduction..
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    bigger aperture will be better say f8 but i have to let u understand tat even at f8, it's rather hard o have tat effect though for PnS. unless u zoom to the max or the background is far from the subj. i have a fz5 going to let it off around early may. cos after learning the manual controls and stuff, decided to upgrade. but the OIS is really good and for out door, this camera really shines due to it's lecia lens... damn good contrast and sharpness. for indoor, get a external flash... the pics will come out rather good.




    taken using fz5 with external flash.
    tell mi if u wan more pictures cos i dun wanna flood it too much with pics haha.
    maybe more specific wat type of pictures u wan. those low depth of field or outdoors or macro or stuff then i see whether i can help. k?

    This camera is good if you take a lot of outdoor shots. Very sharp lens.

    Think the FZ5 is a good PnS camera. Very easy to use and get accostomed to. No problem taking outdoors - but for indoors especially if the lighting is not good, must really use external flash (flash too puny).
