hey guys, anyone tried studio shots with fz series???, coz the guide by some pros is that you shoot as high aperture as possible, but whenever i attach a flash or a IR trigger, i can only hold the aperture at 2.8... i can only take non-overexpose shoot with an old strob which i think is not powerful enough liao... is it just my cam that when attach a flash the aperture cannot change??

When u attach a flash the FZ series,

In any of the mode, the shutter speed would be fix at 1/60 because in the setting for external flash in the camera is set to auto, once u check that to manual, and switch to manual, it would be in full manual mode where u can set both aperture and shutter.

My experience with shooting in studio with FZ20 was that the LCD or EVF can't see well in low light studio condition. So I have to brighten up the studio when I use FZ20.

So can't really do low key shoot very well.
after that time, I did not use FZ20 for studio.
Maybe I should have brighten up the LCD alittle more....

Cheers,
Francis Tan.
