Here are a few pictures taken with the S2 at full zoom, hand held and no PP applied. They look good to me! The snow-covered mountain is Mount Hamilton in San Jose, south SF Bay Area (taken less than a week ago).

Full zoom = 12x or full zoom = 48x?

For some reason I really like the shot of the house- the colors are great- it looks very vibrant!

Full zoom 12X. I normally turn the digital zoom off. I've read many, many times that it is better to use the optical zoom and then crop the imagethan to use the digital zoom. The house is my favorite as well.

These are all under the vivid setting- like the pics in the other thread?

I'm loving these vivid pics- I'll definitely be making use of that setting!

Yes, I have the camera seton VIVID all the time. I think it definitely gives you the best results. I really wish the camera offered live histogram (in REC mode) as well. I found myself taking multiple shots of the same subject just to get the correct exposure simply because the camera only provides me with the histogram after the fact (in play mode). The H1 offers this feature and I rarely miss a shot due to incorrect exposure.

Hi Laura, the trick to the steady hands is to use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD. Youadd a lot more stability that way. Besides, I find theS2 1.8" LCD close to being useless scpecially in bright daylight (I wish the S2 had a 2.5" LCD like the H1).
