Question about jpg noise from new FZ28 owner
May 17, 2009

I'm a brand new FZ28 owner (after lots of reading here!) and just took it out for the first time today.

In reviewing my pictures at 100% zoom, I'm seeing a lot of artifacting and noise that I hadn't noticed in my prior camera (a Canon SD800). I'm a little worried, but would love some advice.

I shot these at fine jpg resolution; the ISO was on auto but went no higher than 125. No post processing other than lossless jpg rotation.

Here are some same photos. In the first one, if you view it at 100%, there is a lot of noise/artifacting around the neck and face

In the second photo, the noise isn't as pronounced, but I still see a little in the face and a lot in the background (trees)

Are there settings I should be tweaking? Any advice welcome!
