FZ 200 on Safari
Dec 11, 2012

Got my FZ200 week before I left on Safari.  Downloaded the manual to my Kindle which was stolen three days after I arrived in Africa.  I didn't want to risk this opportunity by palying around with the camera so these were shot mostly in IA mode and the only PP was some cropping.  I was impressed with how quickly the camera focused and the zoom was amazing.  The Rhino shot was at 48x zoom.  The DSLR crowd was constantly changing lenses and missed a lot of shots- I missed very few.  I was really happy with the my lion pictures because there was so little contrast when they were hiding in the grass.  All shots were handheld.  Comments on how to improve are very welcome.  If the EXIF info does not show could somebody please let me know how to include it.  All of these shots were telephoto.
