It's a great camera...not a mistake
In reply to lchase, May 28, 2008

Ladd,

I spent hours researching too. I panicked when I say the results at first. I made some adjustments and am enjoying the camera now!

I use the P mode now with these settings because they seem to work well for me in most situations:

I will of course change settings as I become more familiar with them. I also use a lot more light plus my flash when I'm indoors. I think the fz18 is a good camera to learn photography and how different settings affect the picture. How old is your son? If he's willing to learn, this is a great camera. I'd also suggest using a tripod sometimes to hold the camera steady.

a better camera in this category? I considered the Nikon P80 but
didn't like some of the reviews.
