click the top button for 4 more photos. These are just messing around shots. Thought some here would like to see some outdoor scenes with an S2.

ahh I wish that was my backyard. I'm about 1400 miles from it ;)

What did you do to get that shot, settings, tripod etc. ?

montana500 Nov 16, 2005 8:33 PM

Hi silva:

No tripod was used. The ISO was 50, sharpening was medium, contrast low,saturation set to high ,super fine [email protected] 5megapixel, IS mode set to shoot only, autofocus was continuous, ev set to -1/3rd ,mode was P-mode. I was sitting ona rock when I took it. The IS works quite well.

I did use some ultra sharp masking in photoshop for post processing.

:Dthank you, helpful for a confused prebuyer! And the other beautiful pics in your gallery, was it a different camera? I canĀ“t see the exif when I download them?

Truly beautiful pics. Ques: Any inkling howthese pics would have come outusingthe auto mode? Very curious since I really doubt that I will be playing around with the camera settings you had indicated when taking pics. I'm more on the more turn on, focus then shoot type of user.

Thanks for your input.

Those are some excellent pictures! Natual scenic photogrpahy really is my favorite.

To answet the question from the post above, the AUTO mode does not let you set ISO, so you run the risk of introducing noise. I do most of my shooting in P mode to lock in ISO 50 as much as possible.
