I was hoping for a bit better

Well, I'm not going to give you the big pep talk. If you didn't like the results, then take some more pictures using other settings until you figure out what works best for you.

Let's see...for the first picture you used the Aperture Priority mode and selected F4.9, 1/210 second shutter speed, ISO 200, white balance - cloudy, color saturation - high, sharpness - hard, metering mode - spot, flash - on, flash strength - -30%, and you had an out of focus warning. What were you hoping for? I think the shot came out very well considering...

Maybe you should reset all the parameters to default, put the camera in the AUTO mode, take a shot, and if it doesn't come out the way you want it, change one parameter at a time until you start seeing the improvements you desire.

I hope you dont mind, I tried to adjust one using ' focus magic' &

'jsc paint shop pro 9', to see what the result would be.

Well, your right, and I don't mind somone playing with the image. Once I came inside I realized that I had all my settings pretty screwed up.

The other problem is/was, the dog was on a porch swing with my wife and of course there was some movement.

The camera is only 2 days old to me and there is an extensive learning curve on the 9100.

Here's one that is better. No processing except to resize. Taken in the same session with the same settings



I'm not the type who really likes to just go "auto" or program. So I'm bound to have several dissapointing shots. At least unlike my old film days I now have instant gratification and a delete button

Actually, I use the "P" (programmmed) mode quite a bit on my S9000. I leave all of my settings in the default or normal position. Then I use Photoshop to finish off my pictures when they need it. It seems that in this digital age we kind of expect everything to come out perfectly every time. But it still takes effort on our part to get photographs that are a little "above" the usual.

Your camera has a lot of capability. But you need to do a lot of experimenting to figure out what will work best for you. Fortunately, it doesn't cost film and processing to do that experimenting. So go crazy! Take a whole bunch of pictures using different settings. You will start to find the best settings for your style of shooting.

Yeah, being able to delete really bad ones is great
