Hand held or tripod?

I have ordered my HS10.. still waiting.. but I'm wondering if anyone who already has it has taken pictures of kids (portait like) or sports... that's the main reason I am getting it. I'm impressed with the pics put up all ready but am looking to see how well it does with kids and sports...

Or this one, a super macro shot, looks nice too.

Portraits don't look bad either.

staats-

That 720mm shot was taken on a tripod sitting next to a spotting scope. He was using the two of then alternatively.

It is a nice photo reminds me of musician John Denver and his love for Eagles......

Hi, new to this forum see new members for details...
Joining Steve's has been prompted mainly by my frustration at the lack of shots which will stretch the HS10. I know everyone lucky enough to have got their hands on one will be busy shooting away but could I ask that those who post samples tell us what the basic camera settings were for the shot and try to be a little more adventurous than just exercising the 720mm setting! Thanks.
On a general note, I'd like to make the following observations. On all forums there are those who seem to delight in comparing chalk with cheese and whilst Steve's is certainly one of the least afflicted it still does happen from time to time. Even in this thread there are unrealisitc comparisons between dSLRs and dVRs. Here's my two-pennyworth. An SLR, digital or otherwise, has a different raison d'etre to a compact or bridge camera. Ignoring factors like build quality, weight, etc. It's there for one reason only and that is to allow the serious photographer to choose the best lens for the task in hand, based of the fact that a fixed focal length lens will offer the best possible performance, particularly with respect to the more esoteric issues such as sweet spots, aberations and distortions. Multi-focal length lenses can only ever offer a compromise between flexibility/ease of use and performance and whilst the trend is for ever-increasing zoom ratios on compact & bridge cameras the SLR world has remained fairly static since the introduction of CAT lenses many years ago. A professional photgrapher (which I'm not) will generally prefer to have 2 or 3 bodies with low ratio lenses chosen to cover a variety of expected needs rather than a single body with a high ratio zoom, because the compromise detracts too much from the quality of the finished article - the photograph! Add to that the better facilities for adjusting the aperture on SLRs and features such as depth of field preview and TTL flash guns, sadly lacking on most if not all compact & bridge cameras as far as I know, then there may be very good reasons for choosing a much more expensive SLR. But that's the point, it is a choice.
Similarly, comparisons between video and stills cameras seems to me to be a complete waste of energy. If making movies is your thing then invest in the best VR you can afford and if it will take a few snaps as well then all to the good. Equally, if you're into stills photography then accept even a poor video recording ability as a bonus ;-)
Now, back to the HS10. As an aside I've confirmed that the HS10 does not come with a lens hood (presumably they saved cents by not moulding the usual groove into the end of the lens barrel) nor does it have a flash sync socket, which is perhaps my biggest gripe. I have repeatedly asked Fujifilm, to no avail, what the difference is between the P10NC02660A & P10NC02670A as both seem to be available in the UK but these part numbers are apparently not connected with the HS11 (Chinese market) and the HS10 (everywhere else). Anyone know for sure? It's also interesting that Fujifilm's own samples are very limited in scope and really offer no good indication of noise, etc.
Anyway, it would be grand to see some samples taken in low light at higher ISO settings as this has been one of the most asked questions in the past few weeks and also of some of the features which purport to make this a pretty good all-rounder.
Sorry about the essay!
Finally, check one unhappy user at http://www.photographyblog.com/news/..._finepix_hs10/ (search the page for Jan to get the the right paragraph).
Am I going to buy one? Probably

If it had been shot hand held I really would have been impressed.
I just bought an S200EXR so I'll wait and see what they include on the next model.

Can anyone think of any reason why the EXR system cannot be implemented on this camera for the still shots at some point?

Thanks.
