New FZ50 owner-- help!!
Mar 11, 2007

Hey everyone--

I just received my FZ50 and have been taking some shots-- some outdoors in overcast and some indoors. I have not been impressed with the quality of the pictures-- not very sharp at all. I need some user tips for great photos right out of the box.

My questions:

Do you normally keep digital zoom off when taking general pictures and does it affect quality of the picture if with short focal lengths? I found that at long focal lengths even at ISO 100, the image quality is very poor- is this normal?

Can this camera produce images like that of an SLR at ISO 100/200? I reviewed this camera extensively and now not sure that I made a wise choice-- can someone help me take good pictures right out of the box-- what are some tips with this camera-- please!!

Thanks,
JPL
