Default Recent X-s1 images

G'day all

Another progress report on the running of the new X-s1 camera

Over the past couple of weeks since its arrival, I have now shot about 2000 frames [many on burst] as part of a) my getting to know it better, & b) still getting to know it better

The exposure system seems very accurate and reliable, the lens seems to be very sharp across its range ... a downside is that sometimes the focus takes a while to lock on > sometimes it seems to get 'confused' with the point-of-focus. I will keep playing: it could be me with the wrong settings for the scenery [whatever] that's in front of me

At the moment I would give the camera 9/10 as a package

images-
1- a goose in a local creek - I think that this used to be a domestic animal, now living in the town creek.

Maybe pre-selecting the AF area (say centre) may help the AF speed- or maybe just select Landscape scene mode(for landscape) which should switch to infinity focus by default...,maybe..?

I think you've got me pretty much convinced to upgrade from HS-20 to this one, Phil. I'll wait for a price drop, though.

G'day all

All the above shots were on "P" mode with ISO @ "Auto > 800" & the "600mm" ref = 26x zoom [ie- it's max]
I am also doing some experiments with the EXR side of things - problem is that when reviewing the images, I often can't remember the exr settings that the camera applies

I'll keep at it tho
Regards, Phil

Pop it into EXR-DR and see what you get. I find that to be the most useful EXR mode for me.
