mine is a FZ20. iso might not be as good as urs

using FZ50, surprising what the lumix can do;)
Anyway FZ20 should be okay with the fast aperture...just get a flash for those night time events because not all events have a good enough lighting:)

;p Some html code error when I edited the last one (my fault), so deleted lor

And get a fast SD card, action happening rather fast n furious in these shows, so a fast write time is almost a must.

BTW, FZ50 ISO is terrible...I was shooting at ISO100 all the way to avoid introducing too much noise

i'm using fz20 too but never try on the runway. usually these kind of event the lighting conditions are pretty tricky. with terrible noise at high ISO, i don't think fz20 can handle well.

abyone looking for me??? one piece of advise, try not to zoom beyond 350mm, noise can be found even at ISO 120>, find for a feng-shui position, camp early if possible;) , the higher the mm, the slower the shutter speed, and yours pix would be blur

this ain't really true... it depends on what you are framing... if you zoom onto something bright you shutter will be faster (ISO and aperture constant)...

but usually fashion the lights keep changing(subjected to the theme) some uses orange coloured lightings, some darker...

you can do your own test... wat I wanna say is it depends on what are you shooting...

you can try using 1x zoom on your room celling with light, and record down the shutter (aperture mode). after that zoom in to the light (same aperture and ISO as the shot before), you shutter speed will increase...

so saying that shutter will be slower when zoomed in is too bold a statement.:)

in that case you will lose some light from f2.8 > 3.7 is about 0.67EV... everything else will stay the same except you will be getting slower shutter speed than fz20 which is still able to shoot at f2.8

the slow shutter makes it very diff to shoot indoor as compared to the fz20;

always a bit blur...i use iso 200 max.
