Hi,

I was going to get the A2 but the store had discontinued the camera. Due to this and the fact I had been waiting so long to get a camera I got the A200. I have posted a picture of my dad's dog Samson. I new to digital photography, but I am pleased with the results so far.

Any comments or tips would be very much appreciated. The picture was taken in P mode so I think everything was done on Auto. I have cropped the picture and reduced the image size. I changed the picture to b&W using computer software, apart from that the picture is straight out of the camera.

thank you for any help.

Ok/....auto-mode..but, what speed did the camera choose and ISO ?
I would have added a little more contrast & reduce the brightness for B&W.

However good lighting !

Sorry

I AM NOT SURE WHAT THE ISO WAS OR THE SPEED.

I will make sure in future that I add the information. Thanks for your comments

I looked up the EXIF data in photoshop, the image is at ISO 160, shutter 1/13 and f2,8. Was the camera handheld? It is very little noise in it, did you use Neatimage? Or did the noise go away because of the rezising?

It is a very good picture, you have a good reason to be pleased with it

Thank you very much for the commnet.

The picture was taken handheld and it has not been touched up with any noise reduceing software. There is no visable noise on the original image ( AS FAR AS I CAN SEE). In the very short space of time I have had to use this camera so far, there is no noise when the light is good.

Thank you

I think your photo is not as (lens)sharp as it should be.
I have post-processed your picture (as described on the site I mentioned in my previous post)
A little bit more of contrast and sharpness makes it more vivid don't you think ?

Thanks for the reply.

The information was very helpful. I have to agree that the sharpened image does look better.

Thank you
