Default HS 10 setting

After using the HS 10 for about 4 months now I can say it's a very good camera when you use the right setting.
In jpeg the contrast setting is way too heavy, even when the tone is put to low.
Therefore use RAW.
Works like this:

Camera setting: RAW, color standard, tone low, AE multi, AF multi. EV minus 1/3, in daylight 200 iso, inside with external flash 400 iso, P-mode.
I use the provided SilkyPix converter like this:
put the contrast to lowest and than on 1.0
put gamma to 1.20
put sharpening to natural fine
convert to jpeg
use PaintShop or whatever you have to sharpen the picture and to add contrast.
Results look like this:
the dog 400 iso with flash

Thank's Gary.
I must say that the posted images get heavily downsized, from about 2 Mb to about 250 Kb.
The originals look better, can't do anything about that.
Sorry.

You're attaching them, Guus. I link mine in from my webhost gallery. Big difference.

Hi Gary,

Thank's for that suggestion.
I'm going to figure out how that works.

You don't have to use a webhost, Guus. You can link in from several free share sites. Photobucket and Picasa Web Album are two that come to mind but, there are TONS of others.

Hello Lucky,

With the other Fuji camera's I own(ed), S5600, S6500, S100 fs, S200 exr I always shot in jpeg mode.
I found it was not necessary to shoot in RAW, made not much difference.
But with the HS 10 it's a different story.
What I mentioned before, I don't like the jpeg outcome of the HS 10. The contrast is no good. Maybe it can be fixed with another firmware-update, I don't know.
On the other hand, the result when using RAW and use it the way I described above is quite good. Better than S200 exr and S100 fs I think.
Try it and you will see for yourself!

Regards,

guus

I find that I do NOT have to shoot in RAW with my Fuji HS10. I have no trouble getting good contrast/exposure from mine and I am using the 1.1 firmware update (I believe thats what it is the one that came out right after the cameras had been shipping in late April, never did the second firmware upgrade that came out). I find the trick is to use the correct exposure comp. value and if you are inside the correct WB setting.

Just me but being a high volume shooter ( I have already shoot close to 14,000 images with the camera since late April) for work reasons I find shooting RAW is a "MAJOR" disadvantage as you have to convert and process the images which takes hours........ I can see the advantage of RAW+ JPEG if your doing wedding stuff and you have poor lighting etc for the few where JPEGs fail to be usable.
