        Hi @Jiffy the problem is that it depends on what time it was,as the light changes all the time my friend,all images are at different settings,on manual I usually bracket shots from 125 to 250 speed,ISO from 100 to 250 and F stops from F4 to F8mbut the in answer to your question:smile:

            Great shots, were they hand held or tripod Woo and were the last two with the digital zoom on?

              I am not sure whether all of the fz series have an option for shooting in both jpeg and raw at the same time as mine can but I tried it and couldn't really see the difference when uploaded onto the laptop so I tend to use jpeg.
              I still have focusing problems with mine, it's only real fault.
              Some reviews say the fz1000 has a really fast shutter and no lag, have you found that?

                    They are amazing close-ups for Macro @wiseowl, it's more like looking through a microscope! :)

                        The FZ1000 zoom in JPG. The camera will zoom to 400mm (Optical Zoom). With I-Zoom turned on the camera will zoom to 800mm (35mm equivalent). Set to a smaller picture size, the camera will zoom more. With I-Zoom turned OFF and the camera set to the 10mp picture size, it will zoom to 560mm. If you turn Digital Zoom On, the camera will zoom to 2240mm. If the picture size is set to 5mp the camera will zoom to 800mm and with Digital Zoom On will zoom to 3200mm. What is the big deal? Normally I never use any form of Digital Zoom as it destroys the picture quality. Not on this camera! I took some shots with the camera set to the 10mp picture size and Digital Zoom On, which gave me 2240mm. On top of that I used an Olympus B300 1.7X teleconverter with total zoom at 3808mm, and the photos look very good
