just bought FZ38,first test at the zoo
Jan 8, 2011

Hello to all!

I decided that a bridge camera is what i need,so I upgraded my Canon A720 to an FZ38..after 1 week of tests inside the house,i went to the zoological park for a more demanding test of my new camera.

I experimented with S mode unsucesfully.Speeds like 1/100 or 1/200 "Catch" more detail in theory but the result was too dark and still blur in practice,i couldnt even see the feathers of the birds.The same in A mode:the results were better but too similar with normal photos taken in auto mode,no big difference.Increasing the f i dindt see any diferences.I hope its my fault and not the cameras'.
I shot auto focus AF in 1-AREA and multi-metering mode.
These samples are from

some better results after i changed my mode to P,iso 100,ev -2/3.
Any advices and comments are welcome!
