Seems to be a bit complicated. Well, we'll see.

No one to the panorama problem?
While the HS-10 has some great features, I found the sweep panorama a bit of a pain to use. For me, it's a LOT easier to just take several frames.

I quite agree. Besides panoramas are difficult to integrate in a photo album.

Anyway, if someone had encountered this Problem, please let me know.

Hmmm, WHERE is a problem? Panorama works well. You must not turn like a tornado to reach 180-270

> 200


> 240

It is not a ploy to get a dozen camera's! I have never made a claim in my life!!!
I was hoping that there would be some kind hearted people on here but obviously not. I have been in contact with Fuji before coming onto here to get a replacement disc/manual but if you check their online shop you will see that it's out of stock, hence why I'm on here asking through desperation as I can only make a claim within 31 days after I returned :-(
I'm not a mug and I'm not trying to mug anyone off!!!

@ DonalDuc

I tried it with different angular speeds of course. It never exceded about 135. By the way, the little bar at the bottom of the display finishes at about 135 too. Very strange. I'll make another attempt tomorrow, speaking friendly to it

THX anyway.

Hi!

As I wrote in my first post, I am trying to optimize the settings of "C" for long distance pics. I compare these pics in Photoshop at a very high resolution as in the samples.

The upper picture is taken under "C", the lower using the programme "Landscape". Distance about 50 m, F= 720 mm , broad sunlight.

The settings of "C" are: DR 400%, F-Chrome, sharpness hard; all other settings standard.

The data of the pictures are:

"C" ..........: 1/1000 F 8 ISO 400
Landscape: 1/640, F 5,6 ISO 100



The "C" picture shows more details though the noise level is a bit higher. Besides, dark green details are much better structured (not to be seen in the sample). There is much of CA in the landscape picture. In all other respects the pictures seem to be alike.

I took a lot of similar pairs and all showed the same differences.

Obviously a higher ISO (with a high aperture) is better than a low ISO or in short: Aperture before ISO.

Grampy, that is exceedingly cool! A pair of gloves will surely be sacrificed in the near future.

Default HS-10 Settings

I have had the HS-10 for about six months now and shot many thousands of images.

Mostly I shoot in Raw, but recently someone suggested that if sharpening was turned up to hard, good results could also be had shooting Jpeg.

After some experimentation, I ended up with the following :
