Earlier today I posted this regarding the high speed option H1...

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=22

Utilizing that facility, and setting the compression levels to the least compression for SQ1, which is HIGH quality vs. NORMAL, or most compression, I went to a Texas Rangers baseball game this evening.

Straight out of the camera these averaged anywhere from 950KB to just over 1MB, so I know the lowest compression setting was working. Had these been recorded at standard compression they would have been just overhalf this size.

Knowing ISO 400 is the slowest available in H1 mode, I just set it there for all shots, be they in H1 or normal SHQcapture. In some cases after the sun went completely down and the artifical lights of the stadium kicked in, I even upped the ISO to 800 to see how the results would look. I'm rushing these on to this page this evening and will do a more complete posting of all my images tomorrow evening, but here's one of the high speed sequences I recorded. This is a series of 9 images, and they were all captured within a space of just over 1 second at ISO 400. At 1/125 sec shutter speed, the action was far from stopped and you certainly would not mistake thesewith a series taken from the photographers pit with a 400mm f2.8 Nikkor or Canon EF prime, but I thought the camera did a very decent job...



















Once I am all finished uploading all the files, the various sets captured in this mode will all be posted here:

Compared to what I did above, here's another way to use these high-rate captures, in this case, 7 images in just over 1 second.

very nice. Can't believe it was done by such a compact camera.

Don't forget to shoot more during the football season. Cheerleaders first.

OK, lets just say you don't want to print your high speed images separatelybecause the Pixels Per Inch at the SQ1 level, even with lower compression selected is too low for you, and you don't want to put together images Like I did above....

Here's another method. These are set to aLetter (8.5x11) size piece of paper...
