Vastly improved... your getting there. That is part of the fun with this camera is learning to use it.

I have to go out until tonight. I hope to try the candle shots tonight.
Well, I didn't get a chance to try the candle shots last night.
Had a good excuse... we bought a Subaru Forester late yesterday afternoon.
Here are some shots of that.



Tricky shot


While signing the papers, they had an accident across the street. That telephone pole isn't so straight anymore!


My wife is a happy camper


The salesman was so impressed with the zoom he said he want to go down and buy the Nikon today at Best Buy.

Very Nice Pics Jack, and a Pretty Lady. Yes Indeed I am so impressed with this Camera, finding something new every day. Your Pictures are so sharp,mine do not seem as sharp?? Your input appreciated.

I will return the Olympus tomorrow, not impressed. Zoom not as good as the Nikon at the full Zoom, one def need a tripod with the 590.

Pictures later.

Richard.

Taken in our Garden, on Auto, contrast altered slightly with Photoshop. Otherwise unaltered. Im trying to find where to alter the contrast within the Camera.

Hey Richard, there are settings in the menu if you look to make adjustments like you want. Push the Menu button, then in P, scroll down to Optimize Image. You have several choices like you want there. Vivid is good.

First Sunny day in awhile around here as we've had an extra long cold rainy winter, so I'm taking our new SUV for a drive and photo-op. Should be fun. I'll post some pics tonight.

Cheers

Thank you Jack. If One makes the adjustment in P, will that carry over to Auto??

Looking forward to seeing your pics.

Richard.:?

No, it doesn't carry over to Auto. But it does stay the same in P until you change it.

Today since it was a nice sunny day which is pretty rare around here these past few months, we went for a drive through Tacoma's Discovery park. Since I was with my wife, I was lazy I didn't change any settings. Just kept them on Program and shot. I notice that some of the shots in the distance that I zoomed in on had a bluish tint?

These two shots are a wide angle shot and then zoomed into the mountains




Some ducks and turtles






Back at my home with our new day old Subaru Forester

Like Your New Forester, BUT Like the Yellow one in the garage better.

I see what you mean with the pictures, but overall they are great esp the Ducks etc.

Will be interesting to see your full review.:|

We leave for Hawaii in two weeks, the Nikon will get a real workout I can assure you.

Im taking my older Canon G9 as a backup, nice camera, but little (poor) Zoom.

Cheers.

Richard.

Yeah.. that is my hot toy and why it is in the garage: 25 pages of pics here:

Even though I was just snapping photo's in program mode, I was a bit disappointed in my scenic shots of the bay, they all seemed bluish and a bit grainy especially the long shots? Maybe it was hazzy since we live near the big cities, Seattle & Tacoma. I'll have to do some more testing at different settings when I have time.

Excellent post here. It was this post that convinced me to get the P90 over the 590UZ or the DMC-FZ28. I got this camera to take on my honeymoon in July to London and Ireland. It is my first "good" camera and I knew nothing about camera settings before this past weekend when I got the camera. Here are a few shots I took this past weekend at the cherry blossom festival in DC.
