not enough! I need a high shutterspeed to avoid blurr from moving people PLUS long reach (10 meters or more) and a low iso so the editor of the newspaper can cut out stuff if needed.

We're talking about dozens of children with their parents PLUS a brass-band making music! 50+ people I suspect! If I want them all in 1 photo, the internal flash won't be enough!

dijkx. Couldnt look atmany of your halloween pics.... Too many annoying pop-up ads. Your paragliding pics are amazing though and no ads on that gallery.

I'm sorry I'm running out of webspace. Most of the pictures are running on my own webspace but not everything. I hope to get more space soon.

More pictures (without adverts I hope) at www.dijkxhoorn2.blogspot.com

Woot! I got my camera back today... Brand spankin' new, w/ a lot newer serial number, and the flash is perfectly aligned... And they say customer service is a thing of the past... They even inspected it before sending it to make sure I didnt get another defective unit.

*phew* Big sigh of relief :?

Hi,

Your batteries must have been pretty low amphour ones,but as you get to navigate around the menu system this will happen. When I first got mine I put in some 2000mAh batteries and they did not last long. I now use 2500mAh ones now. I find it to be an excellent camera,contrary to some reports that I have heard. I am still getting used to mine, I have been taking quite a lot of photos in the garden at home.

Thanks for the tip on the batteries, I was wondering what the difference
would be between the different mAh.

I just bought a 12 pack of cheap alkalines to get familiar with the settings.

I'll make sure to get the 2500+ mAh rechargables for everyday use.

Good to know, thanks

rob

ALWAYS use rechargables.... Alkalines have maybe 20% of the capacity of rechargable batteries!

I use 2100 mah and they last 300 to 400 pix!

PS Pix from Friday still need to be sorted out, will try to post a few this week.

I'm still trying to figure out if I've got any of ther problems that have been discussed
in these forums. (blurring, focus issues) Serial: 53A560XX

Are these problems subtle or are they easy to see?

I have noticed it's difficult to focus sometimes in super macro, although it might be
me and the settings I'm choosing.

Thanks Proton, 2100 + is what I'll look for when I go battery shopping today.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I have been following the threads for a while now. Very informative and some fantastic pics too. Got the S9500 last week, paid £440 in Jessops then saw it in Curries two days later for £399!. An upgrade for my S5500. Love the camera and having loads of fun with it. Hope to participate in the forum from now on.
