Just be sure to do your firmware upgrades and take some time to get to know it before throwing in the towel on it. It's a great camera.

I doubt very much it will have the same problem as the nikon P100 because of the very reason it has manual zoom and i had such a frustrating experience getting refund for a 2nd Nikon lemon that i will keep it even if is doesn't even power up at all. I didn't throw the towel in on the Nikon P100'S.... they copped out on quality on that model and i'm far from the only one discovering how bad they work. Check google

Default Macro and Zoom

The macro and zoom both seem to be amazing on the HS10 from the pics i've seen posted on here and those are the two most important features for me
The macro was not great on the Nikon P100 at all and even my old Sony Mavica was better so this will be a definate improvement.

That's true. Zoom MUST be manual!

Hi guys, I picked up an HS10 last week (one that had been on display for a few days at Comet because there was a 4 week wait, I spent 20mins going over it to make sure it was perfect) having owned an S5600 for a few years and have some questions. Is there any point buying a hood and filters? I have a 4gb sdhc card (cheap brand) what card could you recommend to improve write speed? Is the camera supposed to make any noise when switching between camera mode and preview mode as I get the feeling something moves inside the camera. Is there any particular type of battery you would recommend as I got about 200 shot sout the the supplied Panasonic AA, but I was playing with the high speed video, which by the way looks nothing like I have seen posted online because the video is dark and low res at higer FPS.
Just a few shots taken last weekend, haven't had much time to play due to work.

At 720mm



Sunset mode



Again at 720mm

Nice close-up shot of the leaf. I'm definately no expert but i know you should have at least a speed 6 SDHC card if you are going to shoot video's and a speed 10 would be even better. Panasonic makes the speed 10 ones and maybe a couple other companies. I ordered a professional wide angle lense 0.45x with built in macro for mine because i want the ultimate macro shots. I sell collectibles on ebay and i need to be able to bring in those very tiny "sterling" ect..marks up close. I also order a hood because when you are trying to get some great pics and the sun is facing you,it doesn't turn out very well at times. I might buy a 3 piece filter kit too soon.

That's just normal macro, super macro would have been better. Where can I find info on card speeds and what would be a good buy. Also where could I find an LCD hood in the UK as I was tring to use the lcd in bright light and struggled.

24mm



720mm



Super macro (bad light)



And high speed video (480fps then 1000fps)

From a very useful thread in the Pentax dslr Forum:

Here's the speeds for classes:

Class 2: 16 Mbit/s (2 MB/s)
Class 4: 32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s)
Class 6: 48 Mbit/s (6 MB/s)
Class 10: 80 Mbit/s (10 MB/s)

This is the guaranteed MINIMUM transfer rate.

The older speed rating was based on the transfer rate of a CD, which is 150KB/s.
So a 150x SD card is 150K x 150 = 22.5MB/s

So looking at the above, the MINIMUM transfer is equivalent to:
Class 2: 16 Mbit/s (2 MB/s) = 13x
Class 4: 32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s) = 26x
Class 6: 48 Mbit/s (6 MB/s) = 39x
Class 10: 80 Mbit/s (10 MB/s) = 66x

The range of speed could be:
Class 2: 16 Mbit/s (2 MB/s) = 13x - 25x
Class 4: 32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s) = 26x - 38x
Class 6: 48 Mbit/s (6 MB/s) = 39x - 51x (I think the last figure is right, just under what would be class 8)
Class 10: 80 Mbit/s (10 MB/s) = 66x +

However, before Class 10 was around, some Class 6 SDHC cards had speeds probably close to, or exceeding Class 10.

It should be noted that a lot of Class 10 SDHC cards would be way slower than an old 150x SD card.

SO it's true that not all Class 10, or even Class 6 cards are equal!!
