Since end August 2008 I have my FZ28.
The Panasonic FZ28 is for me an amazing daylight travel camera
in combination with my compact lowlight Fuji F31fd.
My case is the Dörr
Malta Mini: it is a small and gives a a good protection.
For lens protection I use a 46mmv-haze B+W UV-filter and
I hardly use my lens-cap.
I use always a wrist cord and not the neck
If you can avoid it: don't use small diafragmas (A
8) on the FZ28, it will make your photos look softer. You will lose
details due to difraction.
Avoid strong underexposure: moonpictures show
that FZ28 pictures have noise-artefacts if the exposuretime is not
With the macro setting yYou can catch small objects
different zoomfactors (= focuslengths). Different focuslengths give
a different magnification (Field of View) of the object.
The minimal object distance varies with the focuslength (and
is not detailed presented in the fz28 screen).
My measurements are
1x zoom (F 4.8) on 1 cm catches an object of 3.5 cm (magification=100%)
16x tele zoom (F86.4) on 90cm catches an object of 10 cm (magification=35%)
Make your Moonshots In the Manual exposure mode.
