Last one is nice.
Yes I zoomed all the way out to get that shot as a test. I was impressed with it as well. Haven't tested any shot with flash yet, I will need to do that one of these days/nights.

Also on my second set of batteries I was able to get closer to 500 shots, before the camera quit - the red low level battery light came on at 170 shots.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.... I'm starting to see a trend here. Think maybe the battery meter is not quite the ticket? Hopefully, there's a firmware update in the making.

The color and detail is really astonishing, isn't it?

Yes, it's pretty sweet; except the part where my P mode pics were all under exposed and had a green cast -- due to user error. I had accidentally turned on external flash in the settings, found out what I had done only after coming home and checking the EXIF

Much appreciated!
Circular polarizers sure provide great image clarity, but you're putting sunglasses in front of your lens, and it will cost you some shutterspeed. Especially at high zoom settings, or when evening is setting, this could turn against you. Polarizers are great for wideangle photography on sunny days. UV filters are more multi-purpose lens protectors. Especially the glass versions feature almost no loss of light, so you could leave it on all the time. All the screw-in type filters provide a thread of their own, so you could even stack a CPL on top, when you need it.

I'm using a B+W glass uv filter / lens protector with my older panasonic fz50, and a CPL from Hoya. I'm considering getting 58mm versions for the HS10.

Default Sunset

A little experiment. I shot this sunset in manual mode and in the "Scene" mode for sunsets. While it may be more dramatic in the scene mode, I don't care for it.

Shot in manual mode.


In "Sunsets" mode

I like them differently, gj. They are both cool shots!

Some recent ones:





The more I use it, the more I love it.

Default A little more experimenting

Some moon shots with the HS10. Got a clear night so thought I'd try again. Just a one-click sharpen in Picasa.

No TCON, racked out, uncropped


No TCON, racked out, 45% crop


With TCON mounted, racked out 5-8% crop
