we got the FZ1 about 18 months ago,
Have you had the v2 update [uk/eorope spec] or is it the original US spec [earliest mods] You can upgrade - contact me for details.
I agree it's a brilliant little camera for the price, and the general consencus ofer at DP review and steves digicam is that it knocks spots off a] the competition b] the other FZ's ..whith due regard to its MP size of course. A case of getting something almost right first time?
The photograph of Hells mouth [earlier in the blog] was taken the day I got the camera, at max range and about 1km away. the Scillies photos on this site were also taken with it. Very little post production PS work.
whoops going all geeky again.
For anyone else out there, if you can get one [places in the US still do them mail order] it will be the best cheap p/s digicam you will ever buy. Trust me.
