by any chance did you use any filters on the camera when you shot these images.

Great grabs

Nope. It was a little hazy but bright sun.

where these taking at maximum telephoto? Does the HS-20 have persistent problems with focusing at the maximum reach of its lens or is this hysteria from other forums.

Personally i think that a 50/50 sucess rate at these focal lengths would be acceptable?

I think it would go a lot easier than 50/50, not to much coffee or stuff like that and the HS-20 will do its best to keep a clean shot.
The two bottom ones are on 126 mm according to the exif data, clean shot.

Remember when you put it on a tripod or so , turn off the stabilization before you take the shot ..

@ Gary, what difference in setting did you make between the two bottom ones ? auto EXR to EXR HR ?

regards

All I did was point, zoom, & shoot. The camera did the rest. I kept it in EXR DR. BTW, I know it might stun some folks, but I put my cameras in IS mode and LEAVE them there... yes... even on a tripod. These, however, are handheld. These are straight from the camera.

Yes I too put mine in IS mode and leave it. I do shoot in P mode more the Auto EXF or EXF mode.... however for a recent wedding I shoot a lot in the resolution priority mode. I usually just point and shoot myself fixing exposure as needed and keep a good UV filter on my camera since I deal with lots of smoke, dust, debris and sometimes water dropplets.

Onr thing I do find is indoors I usually need to set the WB setting to get the best colors and photos.
