Default Canon SX210 Sample Photos

I've noticed there are not a lot of photos from this camera available online. Here are some that I have taken.

A few notes: I have been using digital cameras for several years, but only p & s cameras. I generally just take photos of "daily life" types of things, as they come up; I don't do a lot of planned shooting.

All of the photos posted here were taken holding the camera in my hands; I did not use a tripod or set the camera on anything to steady it.

This mama rabbit has decided to raise her babies under the tulips next to my house. She didn't run off too quickly, but was far enough away that I decided to try the lens at full optical zoom (14x) to see how it would come out. Late afternoon on the east side of a building doesn't provide the best lighting, but the photo still looks okay.

very nice job on these shots, and it is very helpful. There is not to much sample for the new canon, this will help give members considering the canon a good idea of what to expect. Thanks for shearing.

And I have been looking at a point and shoot to replace one of the ones I have. I was not sure how the canon stacks up.

Thanks a lot, Jac-

Those are great sample photos. I also found the first professional review of the SX-210 over at www.dcresource.com as well.

Thanks, JAC-

That is another good max zoom photo sample. The SX-210 continue to impress.

Jac-

Are the bracketing features on the SX-210 suitable for HDR work?

HDR is something I have not tried (with any camera), so I am not sure what would be required. If you could tell me what kind of bracketing is required, I might be able to figure out if this camera would be capable of doing that.

Do you need to shoot in RAW for HDR? I don't think the SX-210 can do that.

You can shoot jpeg or raw. You just need to shoot a 3 shot bracket, one at middle exposure aka regular exposure. Then the other 2 shots at +EV and -EV. The amount is really up to you at 1/3, 2/3 or 1 EV. But you need to shoot on a tripod. Then import all 3 shots into a hdr program that will align them and put out a HDR shot. The key is having it on a tripod so that the program can align the shot properly.

Thanks for the info. I had a basic idea of what it was, your explanation definitely helped. I will have to try it and see how well it works - and then post some samples for you.

It may take a few days - I will have to first find an appropriate subject (or at least, one where you would notice if the results were not good).

I do know it is very quick and easy to change the exposure setting. The range is from -2 to +2 in 1/3 increments.
