no tony, Your shots are really good. I think guus is pulling your leg! Your shots has good angles and a balanced neutral set of brightness, contrast, color. It's not powerful, but yet the shots are "classy" and the bird's character just "pops out". Best birdshots in these forums. I'll Admit I seen one other person in this forum who shoots clearer shots with better color and contrast but the angles are not good compared to yours. I think the camera was a s100fs. I would not change your style at all! You actually made me think twice about the hs20exr.

Thanks for that Cresco,
as much as I love the HS20,I think the X-S1 is much better.

Hello Tony,

Doesn't look bad but there is something about the contrast setting of the sensor which results in less detail. Look at the black tail feathers and the blown white tail feathers of the bird.
That doesn't look good.
The HS20 is much more tolerant in those situations.

these forums reduce the detail of the images and everybody here in the forums know about this. I have a very sharp monitor and I can see differences all the time. Maybe you are referring to the lens blur.

Default Orbs

On reflective surfaces, the illumination is of circular white balls with radial emissions (Orbs.) This is a low probability event-though annoying at times. Fuji will replace the sensor for X10 and X S1 owners, if requested. A firmware update (March 21) will mitigate the problem in Auto EXR mode but, not all others. Sensor replacement is required for that.
That aside, the camera performs quite well.

Default Tripod??

Tony- Very nice shots indeed!! Two questions- are you shooting on a tripod- and if so- have you turned IS off because you're shooting off a tripod??
Thanks!
Wes
