FZ200 - moving objects
there is some skill involved in shooing moving objects, especially if you are trying to 'pan' with the subject. common technique is to use center point focus and enable the 5.5 fps burst mode with continuous auto focus(this means shooting in jpeg).
Particular attention needs to be paid to shutter speed - will you shoot 'slow' to give motion blur to the bg or shoot 'fast' to freeze all movement?
Subject distance is also critical- the closer the subject the harder it is the for the auto focus to lock on and track.
Lighting is also important, in poor light focusing speeds drop dramatically.
