Hi DonaldDuc,
Im really surprised looking at all the pictures by you amateurs with SX1 IS, i bought this camera last month, and im so much dissapointed with the results, most of the pictures are noisy, grainy...
I'm about to sell this camera, but now after seeing your pictures having a second thought about this camera.
The following may be the reasons why my picture quality is not like yours
1) Hands Shake while taking pics
2) Digital Zoom On
3) DOnt know much of the functions (AV, TV, Manual Focus etc)
4) Faulty Camera ( which is very much unlikely

Can you please give me some of your valuable tips to get picture quality like you.

Im having a Sony W300 (13.3 MP) PS camera also, and the quality of the pictures are fantastic, i came to a conclusion may be the Sensor used in SX1IS is CMOS, and thus the pictures are noisy.

Please help....

This request is for other amateurs also like micloi, murph-51, slyfox

What software do you use to edit? Do you convert the SX1 HD to something else to edit?

Thanks,

I used the full magnification. The picture was then cropped so on the original picture the moon did not really look that big.

Hope this helps
It should be easy to find the settings from your EXIF metadata from the original photos - it is missing from the ones you have posted.

I am interested in the actual settings too as I would love to get this quality of photo from my SX1
