Netman,

I continue to enjoy this little Fuji. It is a camera that requires proper setup. If she was shooting in auto mode or autoexr mode then i am not surprised its sitting in the box, this camera's auto mode does not take advantage of its' strengths. once you get your P and EXR modes properly setup, it produces excellent images with great dynamic range.

I received this camera as a Christmas gift and replacement for my F20 (which my hubby is now using as his walkaround camera). Initially, I was a bit confused by the multitude of modes that are available, but a four day trip to Dubai last month gave me the opportunity to get to know it better.

Mono-

Very nice photos. Very you are very correct, the Fuji F-70EXR does require a "getting used to it" learning curve.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. I was so relieved when I started to get results that I was happy with.

Congrats here, too, on your camera... I for one am very interested in the Fugifilm EXR... I would buy one, too... for a compact camera. Your photos are all very good... amazing what the camera can do... thanks for highlighting it. The last photo of the corridor is really nice.

Default A Few More

Recently had an impromptu visit to the zoo over my lunch break with friends. And since this trip was unexpected, I did not have my DSLR kit, so it was a perfect time to shoot a few with the F70EXR.

These 2 shots were taken at ISO 1600 in very very dark conditions, inside a penguin cave thing. they are cropped and given a light unsharp mask, but no noise reduction given at all.








1 more at nearly full tele. ISO 400.

For sure, it's an impressive little camera, Dustin, as shown by your images here. But, for some reason, I just can't bring myself to LIKE it. I don't know why. It performs well, it's small, relatively quick, compact, has good zoom but, I just can't bring myself to like it. Weird, eh?
