FZ200 - Try this if you haven't already . . . . . .
In reply to katterina, Feb 14, 2013

I shoot JPEGs in P or A Mode, and I use:

Good light:  iResolution set to i-zoom,, iDynamic off, Standard photo style, Co and Sa 0 or +1, Sh and NR -2. (Sometimes Vivid photo style if scene colours are drab.)

Bad light:   iResolution set to i-zoom,, iDynamic off, Standard or Vivid photo style, Co and Sa 0 or +1, Sh and NR -2.

Within this range of settings, I seem to get relatively good results, up to 800 or 1600 ISO when necessary.

EV has to be accurate, narrow range of optimum exposure, frequently I best-guess by studying the colours on the EVF/LCD (histogram is no help with this) and then bracket +/- 0.33 EV.

I have PhotoStyle/Pic Adjusts on FN1, EV compensation on FN2 and AF Style on FN3.
