Default Finepix s5000 and scene selections

Hey guys!

I have a question about the scenes in Finepix s5000 camera:

1) If you select the Portrait scene and take a shot of your friend, does the background appear blurry like in Canon A-series cameras? So does the camera make the field-of-depth effect automatically with this scene?

2) Does the 2-second exposure by using the night scene manage to make descent night exposures?

Thanks for your help!

yes they do. but shoot in 3mpixel mode. 6mp gives some hot pixels.

Yes, the portrait mode uses a shallow depth of field. All of the SP modes are very effective. Two second exposure is okay, depends on what effect you are going for. I wish the camera had a shutter speed longer than 2 seconds, but the rest of the features make up for it's shortcomings.

One thing that I was thinking of doing next summer is going to a waterfall and put that 2-second exposure on to make a soft look to the water, will the 2-second exposure be enough for this?

You can always use filters to achieve effects like that.

2 secs should do the trick. If you are going to do it in daytime you might have to use a gray filter to avoid blowing the highlights of the image with long exposures like 2 secs. You can always use the continuos shooting mode to get several pictures from the scene and combine them afterwards with PS to achieve the softness effect.
