DUDE! your squirrel shots are way better with this camera. You still have your old camera? how you like both or what's going on?

you can definitely take better pictures even with overcast. You should try on a sunny day just to get you started.

The HS10 has a WHOLE lot further reach than my E-620 with 70-300mm. These squirrel shots were without a TCON-17 mounted and only about 5-7% cropped. It's unbelievable with it mounted (1224mm!!). At the range I shot this squirrel, I would have had to zoom back out as it just gets too freakin' close!

I got some better pics in my previous outing. I posted the pics on DPR; don't know if I'm allowed to link to it on this forum.

Yesterday, I was having a lot of focussing issues at the long end of the zoom, mostly due to user error -- not being able to hold the camera steady enough for crisp shots. Many ended-up a little soft.

I'm liking everything I've seen and read about this camera but can someone tell me if the continous shooting can be slowed down from 10fps so I could shoot until the card is full? I've read until I'm cross eyed and all I've seen is what's listed on the speck sheet. I do one specific job with my V-Lux 1 that requires shooting for about three and a half minutes continous and I'd love to do it with the HS-10 if I could.

Thanks in advance,

DonR

Menu selections are 10, 7, 5, and 3 fps. Maximum rate depends on RAW usage (less with Raw)

Ya the ducks looked soft and blurry. I could tell.

We don't ban links to DPR and currently neither do they ban them to Steve's, however it depends on the reason for posting links, if it is to share an important piece of information that no one will have seen then fine, but we've had people who constantly post links to other sites trying to stir up issues, or just to detract from Steve's.

So short answer, yes it's OK (within reason).
