Another piece to the Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 puzzle

Monday I was able to get out and do some more test shots with the Panasonic DMC-FZ1000.  This time I shot in jpeg so I could test out the camera’s special effects and styles.  I promised to have some more images from an outing at Sands Point Preserve (shot by my wife GraceAnn with the Panasonic DMC-FZ1000) and you will get that at the end of this first grouping of photos.  Now let me share some images of Times Square here in New York City.  Next to each image will be what special effect setting was used.

A few words about these test shots that I feel I need to tell you about.  First thing is that some of the creative settings (and maybe all but not sure yet) do not move with the RAW file for processing in editing software (not even the one that comes with the camera).  Supposedly you can shoot the effects in RAW and then change them to jpeg in camera and it will retain the effect used.  I haven’t tried that yet but I do know that my wife shot in RAW while on the beach using the Star Filter effect and when I transferred it over to an external hard drive for editing, the effect never came over.  In editing the image looked like any other image and converting it to a jpeg made no difference.

Also, on top of the camera, there is a dial and on the dial you have two (2) settings where you can find these effects.  Both have monochrome settings and settings that allow you to produce the “star like” effect that one might want from reflective surfaces.  In fact there are a total of three such settings.  A bit of an over kill here.  There are some other settings I have not tried out yet.  There are a series of effects for shooting portraits along with a few for night scenes and a few others not worth mentioning because I will not try those out.  The last photo is pretty impressive due to the fact that it came from the camera’s 4k video (now that is a big plus).

That is it for now.  Below you will find more images shot with the Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 from the Sands Point Preserve.  Don’t forget!  No post for next week as I’ll be on vacation.
