Really nice dijkx, especially the first one - flamingo? Are they straight out of the cam or was there PP involved?

Just wondering if any of you pros can shed some light on this problem. I purchased a Quantaray flash several years ago with a Pentax dedicated flash module. There apparently is not a standard auto flash module for the model that I have. Will the Pentax module work on my Fuji 9000? I realize that would be no TTL support.

Steve:

The flamingo is straight from the cam
On the second one I did some leveling in PS
the Pelican is a crop from a bigger picture but for the rest untouched
The last picture, I made the water bluer

Thanks dijkx, that being the case it looks pretty good quality and restores my faith a bit!

Hi everyone,

I was not sure where to place this question so I thought I would start with people using the same camera as me.

I am a newcomer to digital cameras and processing of the resulting pictures. I have also just been given Noise Ninja. When I use NN should it be one of the last processes I do? If I need to sharpen I tend to do this as the last thing. I have been keeping my post processing very very basic. I have been using the KISS theory (Keep It Simple, Stupid)

As a second question, taking landscapes my images seem a little out of focus and not real crisp. Does any one else have this problem? I figure I can clean it up in post processing or should I get fujifilm service to check it out?

Thanking you all in advance.

Hi Shadow, Haven't heard from you for a while.

You might like to try this viewer which has some good basic editing functions. Its a free downloadand it isnice & user friendly and well put together- I've been using it for ages and I think it might just be perfect for you. Good for learning the basics.

http://www.faststone.org/

Give it a try (its the Fastone Image Viewer you want to download)

Steve

Thanks Steve for the link. I think though that I am going to try persisting with working out Photoshop CS and Noise Ninja, especially since I think I may be getting CS2 for Christmas. I will keep things simple for now whilst I get used to different tools with the aim of getting proficient with one before trying to tackle the next. At least that is the game plan.

Here is a pic I have been tidying up.

Everyone please feel free to comment. The only way I can get better at processing my images is through your feedback.

Sorry Shadow, didn't realise you were all ready on Photoshop, et al. I use PaintShop Pro but I still findthe FastStone really good for quick intuitive editing. Are you going to get away with sitting on the PC on Christmas Day?:-)

Has anyone had any success with using a non- Fuji power adapter.
I have a multi voltage one and I was only able to use it in the review mode.
The moment I switched to camera mode, the camera switched off.
I've just bought this camera and I've already used 2 sets of battries just
playing around and learning about the functions.
There's still alot more to learn and I'm loving it.

I've tried my adapter on the 4.5 and 6v settings.
Output is rated at 500mA
