... hi, you can set asa handly
at 400, and with `a` program
set the maximun opening and
check if you get an enought fast
speed. if that is no enought, up
shoot speed even it may results
under-exposed in raw mode, and
after correct exposition with the
`photo fun study` included in the
camera cd-rom

Hi Pablo!
Your English are very well,and in the same level of me :lol:
I have to check as i told you, in training,because all the contitions are there..and i have not such an action to test anywhere....so,i'm waiting....
FZ28 is very good for the video which i have used it many months,making clips with power director.the only problem is the bad sound from the micro...anyway,this problem solved in fz38(in Europe)and fz35 in other countries.I haven't experience with photograph as in video capture and editing,so,i have to learn more about...(with a little help of my friends here...) :lol:

uhm, indoor shooting is very hard with this camera.
I tried it with this settings:
ISO 400
Flash +2.0EV
shutter 1/60
aperture 2.8 ofcourse^^
and, standing as close as possible to let the flash doing its thing!
If you cant get good results with this, youve to buy a dslr.

arg!
I hope there's more light then in my sporthall, but for any freezing of action you need to keep 1/60 at least. maybe try shooting RAW and pump up the iso to 800.

Hi,
I have tried the fz35, and I think you should avoid all iso400 and above, since noise is too much. You can try raw. I think you would want to pay particular attention to white balance, or you may have very un-natural looking photos. My suggestion is try aperture-priority mode. Set aperture to f2.8 and iso to 200. But if you want a small depth of field, you will need to keep yourself along the longer side of the court. Also, f2.8 is not available at telephoto. The max aperture reduces as you zoom out.
Hope this helps,
Jinay.

 Post subject: fz28 final settings
PostPosted: Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:24 pm 
Hi All from Greece..
Well my friends,shooting tonight in the court after all the settings you recommended to me, the only acceptable setting is in scene mode,HI-speed burst,image priority, 16:9 (2M).All the other settings does not bring better results, than HI-speed burst mode.Seems, that these settings may be acceptable for DSLR.Of course we don't wait to replace the ability of DSLR from FZ28 in these difficult contitions (Low lighting,fast speed etc.)
Anyway,I think that this help to any other friend to know if meets such contitions..
Thank you for all
whatever any other information you want about video editing for FZ28 dont
hesitate to contact me !

... hi, automatic-programs dont invent
exposures, only choose one for you.
f.e. setting high-speed inside, camera
make automaticly what i said, up iso
to an aceptable level an open maximun
diafragm.
cheers :)

Hi Pablo !
You are right ! following all these settings you (right) suggest to me and from the above friends,after 5 or 6 attempts i was confused....so,i stay to these automating settings.Of course this solution is not the ideal....i understand.Hope with the help of time to learn this cituation better.As i told video recording and editing is my favorite (amateur) many years,starting from 8mm,vhs,and following all these,stayed in FZ28,planning soon to move to FZ38 (for the better sound!)
Have a nice day :D
