Viz, that is an amazing variety of images-

However, the image quality is evident in each image. Well done!

Thanks Sarah,

It has been too long for good weather to break out here where I am. I wanted to get a variety of shots to see how I fare in learning how to use this camera. It is actually an amazing piece of kit and will take some time to know it intimately.

Default Thank You

I appreciate your viewing and commenting.

All shots that I have taken with this camera thus far has only been hand held. I shot in SR mode and P mode. Since it was my first time really going out and about in some good light I wanted to see how these modes fared. The shot of the woman sun tanning was also with 2x digital.

The only thing I did to these shots is sharpen after resize. I usually shoot in jpeg only as well.

The camera does quite well with colors and skin tone accuracy.

I only have one nit about this camera for my style of shooting. It takes too long for the sensor on the view finder to kick in so I can compose a shot. When I try to use for low level shots with the tilt screen I find it turns off if I happen to get it too close to my body (which I don't find it too close, but that is beside the point). I worked around the viewfinder delay by putting my right thumb over the sensor before I put it up to my eye.

When time permits I will continue to shoot this camera and share my results and anything else that I may find to be a bit of useful information.

Take Care,

Tom

I believed that you could set the "viewfinder auto switching" to manual somewhere in the menu...and switch it with button next to it.
