    Hi,

    I've just got a Panasonic FZ3 camera :D and would like to take some of the classic video screen shots for example from Fifth Element. I'm no photographer but have new toy, any advice on getting a good picture, I'm planning to fit some HD-144 colour filtered lenses and I would like to take some before and after shots.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Well you need a tripod to get really good screen shots and your exposure correct to compensate for the flash off.
    I only use a Kodak digital camera and have the exposure at +2.
    *Balance the camera on top of the crt above the middle lens..lean over and press!

    But its real difficult to get good screenshots..

    Imo screenshots will never do your system justice anyway.

    Just a thought.
