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?
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.
