[QUOTE=JakAHearts;971466]Here is a series of photos i shot at increasing iso levels starting at 64 and ending at 1600. All were at 1/2000 and F 5.0 which is the lowest setting at full zoom. I chose the horseshoe pits because one was in direct sunlight and the other was not, plus the backround was shaded. None of the images are altered in any way with software. Obviously your lighting when shooting surfing may be a bit brighter. Also, I would think that you might want a slightly slower shutter speed than 1/2000 for surfing but I guess thats all in the eye of the beholder.













did you take this photos in the night ?

That would work. I prefer to put it in either S or A mode and use the mode dial to try several settings.

Allenz888, No, those pictures were in the middle of the afternoon. They are so dark because I was at full zoom and using a shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second.

Curious....

Does the P90 have lens threads? For filters, etc??

Also, can the LCD show grid lines or a histogram display??

Thanks,

No lense thread on the P90. I know the LCD can show grid lines. Im pretty sure the viewfinder can also. Histogram is available for images after they are taken. I dont believe there is an active one available to see pre-shot.

I want know whether the Landscape "Scene" mode is OK for taking outdoor photos or should I make the use of P,A and S modes and make the necessary changes?

Also, is the Macro mode OK for close ups and whether manual setting is essential for those close in shots?

I'll be out on a trip to one of the most beautiful hill stations of India, Mahabaleshwar (Maharashtra). And I don't want to come back without those beautiful landscapes in my camera.
