Shot in manual mode.


In "Sunsets" mode
The second one looks like it was taken after one of those huge fires had effected the skies in California. I've been through a few of those.

I vote for #1. I'm discovering that the scenic modes and other automatic modes on my S200EXR aren't all that great. Maybe the HS10 is the same?

Well I'm kind of disapointed about that fact since I did want the automatic stuff to be pretty good. It IS supposed to be a Point & Shoot. But I'm still working on it. You're doing great with this camera!

I had the F70EXR. While it is a good (very good) camera, it (like the S200EXR) requires some learning time. When I got my second bridge camera I decided to get away from the scenes but I was daunted by learning to use the camera "the right way". I stayed in P mode forever. Then, while I still had my SP570 and my first DSLR (Oly E-410) Mark1616 and Eharrim pried me into Manual mode. Yeah, I kept wanting to go back to safe harbor of P mode but I wasn't getting the kind of images I wanted. The more I used manual mode the more I learn to shoot "the right way". Once you get used to shooting manual, you can pretty much use any camera and get decent shots right out of the box. It's just a matter of knowing where the buttons are and getting used to the feel. I really feel comfortable with this camera. I feel it's an extension of me. And, isn't that's how it should feel?

I use both a UV filter for general use since I am around a lot of smoke and such and also have Circular Pol. filter for use around water. Brand for both are Tiffen in the thin mount. Why because they were recommended to me by a guy and work and they have worked for me on my Fuji S-9100 years ago and are working for me now.

Heres another sample image from very tricky lighting from the county courthouse. Our Board of Supervisors were trying to set the tax rate Wednesday night and got very frustrated. The editor at the local paper loved the photo. I know this might not be the best picture out there technically but it shows that people are very impressed with the camera.

Dave-

That is an excellent example of a "working" camera. Well done.

Some extreme panning shots. Taken with Tcon-17.

It proved extremely difficult to handle that much zoom, and get a good pan. these are the best results from todays attempts. Both not fully in focus / motion blurred; Couldn't resist sharing the attempts anyway.

pictures taken in burst mode. Once the shuttter is pressed, you're running blind, because the screen freezes while the cam is taking the pictures, which adds to the challenge. Resized and sharpened quite a bit.

It's the maingear of two airbus A330 passenger jets in takeoff action.
