testing programme/settings for new FZ300

Rushing to pack my suitcase I finally decided to buy the FZ300. I get it delivered to my hotel in Salt Lake City on Monday.

Two things I need your help with:

1. How do I make sure this is not a lemon considering I'm taking the risk of buying a camera many flight hours away from the UK (not the first time). What kind of test programme would you do? Note: I've not used a 'proper' camera in quite a while though usually shoot aperture priority with my old Canon sx230. Most tech in this camera will be fairly alien to me though.

2. 8 days Utah Nationalparks. Yay! Any suggestions on getting started with this camera quickly? What kind of settings would you use if you will only find time to go through the manual in detail after the trip? Colour/sharpness corrections and the likes?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
