Did the update, now need some instructions on how to use it.

I tried a couple today with the animal thing, but not sure how successful it was.

Any ideas suggestions of how to maximise use of the update?

Thanks

It's a bit of a personal thing I think. Dependent on what/how you shoot. Myself, I'm making great use of the AF near/far function, I've set mine to near, and it's brilliant for shooting macro style work. Where before the focus would want to stick to the background, hit your selected function button & the focus immediately jumps to the closest subject in the frame. Brilliant. I'm also using the Peaking in autofocus, as a visual confirmation of your DOF. Like a constant DOF preview. Utterly fantastic. I found out over the weekend, that focus peaking does not work in AFC mode. That's a bit of a misnomer on the Panasonic web page. You can see this as when you switch between AFS, AFC & MF, the peaking icon on the screen disappears as soon as you switch to AFC. No drama, things are probably happening a bit too quick to watch the peaking anyway.

I need to practise more, and also become more familiar with the menu, because to be honest I don't know how to set the ner far thing. Have printed out various bits and pieces that I've found, so need to have a read with camera in hand and play with settings etc.

Thanks for the info - much appreciated.

I thought peaking was for only manual focus anyway. To assist. ;)

She probably thinks she is more important than that dumb camera thing in your hands, why It hasn't even got any hair! :-P

It's my friend's dog - and she just loves chasing stones. Makes a good subject though, especially when still.

Well, yes and no. Peaking is great for manual focusing, but it's also excellent when shooting fast primes near wide open using autofocus. It gives you a constant depth of field preview, and you can quickly and easily tweak the focus plane to suit. I find it easier to move and see the whole focused plane, rather than just guessing your depth of field when using a single point. It's really really good for that. I was more just curious to see the effect on AFC, rather than being reliant on it. That's all

nice set of photos Rose. I love your dog.

I see you mention your lense.
Not sure if you know, but you can pick your lenses from a list.
See below. Forgive my interference if not needed
In your case I assume 2 above where my cursor is in screen shot below

It took me a while to work all that out also. For a long time out beloved G9 was listed as a dslr!

Thanks I knew there was something I could, as did it once before, but hadn't got around to investigating again, so I appreciate the tip.
