Default Some random images...

... in some GREAT light. I used a tripod and remote shutter release on all of these. There was a breeze blowing the willow around so lighting was variable.

I just bought an HS20 after using an F31fd for many years and being impressed by the image but frustrated by the lack of zoom. I have been extremely impressed by the quality of the many shots that you have been sharing on this forum site, from intricate flower macros to wildlife zooms. Your colours are just amazing, and the detail in your bird shots incredible. I notice that you have been using the HS20 in EXR HR mode on many occasion, and was wondering whether you have some preferred settings in this mode, and, if so, whether you could possibly share them i.e. with respect to image size, image quality, film simulation, color, tone, sharpness, noise reduction, ISO, focus check, AE, AF mode, AF focusing, EV? Do you have some of these settings permanently set, and then just vary the others to suit the image? If so, I would very much be interested in what these settings would be to get such fantastic shots.

Thanks very much for your generous words. They are very much appreciated.

I keep the size as large as possible. Better cropping that way. I use a tripod and remote shutter release cable. High end ISO limit of 400 and EXR-DR every time I use EXR. I prefer shooting in Manual. Image quality = Fine. Dynamic Range = 200 Film simulation = Standard Color = High Tone = Standard Sharpness = Hard Noise Reduction = Standard

When I shoot in Manual, everything depends upon light and subject. 98% of my studio images are shot against black velvet using natural light from a window. I may or may not use a gold reflector depending on lighting and subject. I generally shoot at the lowest possible ISO. Aperture wide open. Centered metering and Center AF.

Hope this helps. And, thanks again and welcome to Steve's.

Thanks very much. I shot these about a 10 minutes after the sprinkler shut off.

Many thanks for the EXR-DR settings. I shall definitely give them a go. If I get anywhere near close to the quality of your images, I shall be ecstatic. Much appreciated.
