Fotos con Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX-01

Bueno ante mi duda de como tirar fotos decentes con una camara compacta (en concreto con la mía) e indagado un poco en la wes. Y en dpreview he encontrado un par de cosas interesantes.

Fotos exteriores (base settings from Fred)
"wb cloudy
aspect ratio 4:3
pict size 6m
quality high
af mode center H
af assist off
slow shutter 1s
color effect off
pic adj standard
flash off
power save 2min
economy off
auto review 1sec
all sounds off
scenes menu off

I usually keep it in macro mode so I'm always ready for a close-up. The downside to that vs normal mode is slightly slower auto focus."

Otro tio, indica que usa la misma configuracion pero compensando la exposición -2/3 excepto en condiciones de muy baja luz. E incluso -1 en dias muy soleados.

Fotos interiores con flash
"Normal picture mode (camera icon)
Auto WB
ISO 200
Exposure compensation +2/3
Auto flash
Zoom at widest setting (28mm equiv). This is important as it keeps the camera close to the subject for maximum light penetration.

If you use the SLOW SYNC flash change the WB to ARTIFICIAL light to avoid an orange cast.
I don't see any noticable "noise" in my pics."

Fred indica que para foto con flash simplemente cambia al modo 'heart' (simple); de esta manera no tiene que variar sus ajustes por defecto (la camara no te permite tener ajustes prefijados).

Mas detalles:

"With my settings the flash light dominates and Auto wb is just fine.

You can also use these settings for fill-flash, especially backlight.
For fill flash, set the flash to forced on. "

Mas: "I find iso200 works very nicely for late evening/early morning shots when the sun is real low. It's also a good choice for action shots where you want to get as fast a shutter speed as possible."
Lo del AF assist off, es para salvar energia, ya que sólo sirve para cuando tienes a un sujeto con poca luz a 2-3 metros.

Mas info sobre lo que hace Fred en fotos indoor: "I would just go with full auto heart mode indoors. (With the flash off you will go no higher than iso200; on it will go to iso400.) That allows you to then go to normal (or macro) for outdoor settings without having to fiddle with anything other than the mode wheel."

Sin embargo 'murry' no está de acuerdo . El por el contrario usa los ajustes para indoors que he puesto en el post para interiores y comenta que el heart esta bien para exteriores. En para interiores no es 'consistente'. Ya tengo la solucion. Heart para todo, jaja.

Otra recomendación de ajustes:
"The most important setting for me is to set colour/sharpness to Vivid, even if standard gets more sharpness to the pic.
The colours are not oversaturated but strong enough.

I use AutoISO a lot, that allows the cam to go up to 200 with noflash and up to 400 with flash.

I feel the metering is quite string, but sometimes I give -1/3 to -2/3 on sunny days, but also +1/3 for flashing.
I use center AF(high) and not to 9-field sensoring (too slow)

That's most of the settings I use.
And for speed dependent pics I change to Sports mode "

Otro thread para echarle un vistazo.
Una cosa importante que me han comentado es que hay que sacar siempre las fotos a 6m, y siempre, despues de hacer un 'resize' hay que hacer un 'sharpen'.

Sobre el slow shutter me comentan:
"As for the 1s slow shutter speed, I set it there just in case the fx01 wants to go slower than 1/4s which I find is about the lowest I can get a failry shake free handheld shot. I'm seldom in a situation that calls for slower than 1/10s but I don't want to grossly underexpose if I can help it and I don't want to have to remember to reset the slow shutter. If I see the shutter speed going to 1/3s or slower I will look for some added stabilization.

If you are using the flash slow sync, the 1s is probably too slow. I would got to 1/8s or 1/4s there."

Sobre fotos con flash.
Ojo! en el modo 'corazon' no se puede desactivar lo de los ojos rojos. Esto tiene un problema y es que se quita espontaniedad a la escena porque la camara tarda mas en tirar la foto.
Si vamos a retocar las fotos a posteriori es mejor no usar la reducción de ojos rojos.

Cesar dijo...

Sobre las 'relaciones de aspecto': "The relative (least common denominator) demensions of the image. In the case of the fx07; 4:3, 16:9, 3:2. 4:3 is the standard tv ratio and (consequently?) the standard digicam sensor ratio. 16:9 is widescreen tv/video. 3:2 is the old 35mm camera ratio, which is where you get the standard 6x4 photo. The fx07 sensor is 4:3, so 16:9 and 3:2 require in-camera cropping which can easily be done later."

Cesar dijo...

Mas sobre el 'aspect ratio': "4:3 uses the full sensor and that's what I would use and crop if need be. If you will be printing only 4x6 prints straight from the camera, then use the 3:2. If you will be viewing only on widescreen tv, use 16:9. Otherwise, use all the pixels you have, which is 4:3."

En otro posteo posterior, Fred ha indicado como EV -173 y:

"ISO200 works very nicely in low, late evening and early morning sunlight. "

Cesar dijo...

¿A lo que replica Murry (a quien le damos la razón)?

"With all due respects to Fred, his settings are not right for every
situation, they are good for moderate to bright daylight.
For some one who is new to the camera it is a mistake to suggest
the they keep those default settings.

I would like to suggest the following.

For outdoor daylight pictures use the simple mode (heart icon)
The FX01 seems to do very well picking the right settings.

For outdoors at night use the normal mode (camera icon)
First most important, exposure compensation +2/3,
Flash must be turned OFF.
Set ISO200, if pictures too dark go to ISO 400.
These settings work the best for walking around Disney etc.
If they are still too dark you will have to use longer shutter
times, preferably with a tripod.

For indoor pics with flash. After a lot of trial and error I found
these settings to give the best results.

Normal picture mode (camera icon)
Auto flash
Auto WB
Exposure compensation +2/3
AF Assist lamp ON
Zoom set only at the widest setting (28mm) This is very important
as it keeps the subject(s) close enough to the camera to allow
the flash to illuminate.

For more background ilumination, use the slow sync for flash.
Change the WB to artificial light,"
