Very impressive, Gary, especially with so small a bird. Now if there were some way to eliminate or at least minimize the graininess . . . .

They look just fine to me. If I were wanting to enter these into some sort of competition... well, I wouldn't.

To me too - you are able to record useful images that otherwise would take highly specialized and very expensive equipment normally available only to specialized professionals or grant supported researchers. Not every good photograph has to be a prize winner.

Seems to me that we have some mighty fine gear in the HS-10 contrary to what the detractors/whiners say. Funny, when you look at the raw specs on it, it really ISN'T that impressive. It's when ya take the time to experiment and play with it that it really struts its stuff.

I can't wait for the first hummingbird to attack my feeder!

Well, after over a half century of taking pictures with 30 or 40 different cameras, I no longer impress easily, but I have to tell you that after using the latest generation of cameras like the newest Pentax and Sony dslrs, and now this -- Oh, times they are a-changing.

Kudo's, kudos, Boss Man !

These pics really get me going ! I'm making my own coffee and saving myself another 2 bux a day toward this purchase....

I wanna make pictures just like this !
Maybe you can start something along the lines of "Gary's HS 10 School of Mastery" or something....

I'm in.... course, at the rate I'm going, by the time I pony up, something else will raise it's beautiful head.... satisfied ? No, no, never satisfied.... not me.

Thanks for showing us again, just what this thing can do !

Those are really great pics.. Like someone had mentioned, it wouldn't be normally possible without a lot of sophisticated equipment..
