Re: 1st outing with new FZ200

Some nice shots of some grand old machinery.  What is the car in BRG (#49).  It resembles a D type Jaguar; but the nose looks wrong.

Anyway, I use my FZ200 in Program and set the Picture Adjust sub menu to Sharpening +1 and NR -2.  The light looks flat, so in those shots I would have set WB to Cloudy, which will punch up some colors.  If you want to blur the backgrounds, set the camera to Aperture preferred and set the aperture to f/4 or f/5.6; but no higher.  That will get you a slower shutter speed to get more blur in the wheels and background, and then work hard on your panning technique to keep the body of the car sharp.  If the wheels and background are blurred enough, nobody will notice the car isn't tack sharp.
