    I am just like you , learning just like each and everyone of us learn the different way with different steps ... one gd way to learn is to never give up despite any failure and continue to work towards yr ultimate goal , its only when u shoot more , learn , feel and inspire from those top notch photographers work then u will improve . Think of it in this way even if u got expensive pro equipment but u are not using it and keeping it at home what will you get at the end of the day ? You should be happy that u started with a decent digital camera ... most of us here i believe started purely on flim and i still remember that time i was shooting like 20 + rolls per weekend and sometime i would even spend my meals on the flim developing itself and ended up eating bread .

    so bro , have a expansive mind not expensive equipment . Just my 2 cent advice


    I support your points..
    hope to learn more from you......

    and

    check this gallery, this photographer is using FZ20 too

    yea tat's 1 of them.. the viewfinder is like damn dark lor... n u have to keep on trial n error sometimes to get the exposure right.. n sometimes by then the shot u wan is already gone... esp if taking with flash
    or maybe i'm juz too noob with it.. haha

    yea yea.. it's an electronic viewfinder... tat's y sometimes it's really dark n i have to use AF instead of focusing myself... n this will most of the time fool the camera in where to focus...
