Water drops

Michael Shpuntov (Yahoo!, FZ10 group, 1 January 2005)...

I found that to get best results shooting indoor with incandescent light with my FZ10 I need following settings. (I know that they are different from theory, but they worked) I use Sunpak 383 in `yellow' mode (with f/2.8 -- distance up to 9m) -- bounced from ceiling.

Flash mode -- Manual

Exposure -- Shutter priority AE

WB -- Sunlight (Not auto, not indoor, since external flash temperature is about 5500K which close to bright sunlight)

Shutter speed -- 1/300 - 1/2000

Aperture -- 2.8

In addition to that, sometimes I press 4 way switch up until it gets to color correction and move it one - two position to blue side. All other settings are normal

Above settings will freeze motion of the object. If you {are} close enough {to the subject} you can go to shutter speed even 1/1000 - 1/2000 and still have good lighting.
