Thought I'd post a few more pictures of my pet dog I took this weekend.
Actually, I don't think they came out all that good. You can't see much detail in her fur. Maybe because it's not a very easy setup (it was very bright and her fur is almost completely white)... or maybe from the scene configuration I chose in my V550 was not indicated (I used sport mode, 'cause I thought she moves a lot and a low shutter speed would come in handy).

Please let me know what you think!

Really cute pup...I agree with you, the white fur in bright sun does get blown out. I would drop the iso down to like 80, and try the aper. with a higher number to let less light in. If I have to make a choice, I'd rather underexpose something, it can always be brightened up in software. But once its blown out, the details can't be recovered.

I have to try some different settings... since this camera (v550) is fully automatic, all I can do is try some other scene settings, or the auto-mode. From what I've seen auto-mode has worked better, but I have to admit it's the first time I've tried anything other than the auto with this camera (except for long exposure times at night)!

Thanks for your comments!

She's the crossing of a German Shorthaired Pointer (father) and... a Poodle (mother)! I don't think the mother was a pure breed Poodle, either.

Anyway she completely takes after the father except in size! She's 3 months old and not very big, and from what the vet tells us, he doesn't think she'll grow to anything near the father's size.

Blown highlights are a bit of a problem! If you had a different camera I'd recomend a neutral density or a gradual gray filter but with the V cameras Dans suggestions are good ones!
