I LOVE THE PICS! I am an animal lover and just love orangutans!! Another thing in common: We both have the P850. I just got mine a few days ago and haven't had a chance to play around with it yet. I'm not pro, but I'm trying to become one. I've been reading article after article trying to learn how to do things manually. I think I have aperture and shutter speed down. I'm very serious with this.
I was wondering if you used the manual PASM settings or if you used one of the preset "scene" modes when taking these pics. Auto?
I love close-up shots with blurred backgrounds, subject focused, and have grasped the concept that a lower f/stop (larger aperture) and shallow depth of field achieves this. What I wouldn't know how to do is set the camera manually to achieve this. What I'm talking about are your duck pics and the pic of that I don't know what it is that's off to the left.
Anyway, I don't want to get into a newbie post, although I'm sure this is sounding like one, but I sure would be interested in talking with you since those pictures you took is in actually the MAIN REASON I bought the P850. Again, I just want to say AWESOME PICS!! Hopefully we can talk sometime. Feel free to email me or IM me as I would love to chat with you about the camera. My email is [email protected] and my handle on AIM is gina4xoxoxo.
Do you have more pictures to post using the P850? Do you feel the optical zoom has good focus when pretty much completely extended? I had a Z740 before the P850 and hated it from the day I bought it due to the fact that every picture I took was blurry (no image stabilizaiton). I think I made a better choice with the P850.

Hope to hear from you soon!
Gina :?

The cat and Monkey were shot through some really dirty glass. I think they turned out pretty good considering the high overcast day. Thanks for the compliments.

Goofas, thanks for sharing the photos, very nice shoots, although I can't see the exif info. Are you using max optical zoom? such as for the leopard. Seem like the IS also work well
