Default Chunky Monkey E17ED

LT -

Tried out the E17ED - it is a chunky monkey to carry around but it does take good pictures using a monopod. Not much going on in the "wetland" area.

About 50 yards away.








The egret and ducks about 60-70 yards.















There is a trail around the area but it's so grown up it's hard to get near an open place for a clear shot. You have to peep through the bushes.

They look good Clint...you should set the Sharpness to +1 and the NR to -1 on try it...also the 10sec 3shot feature is great off the Tripod...

What were your settings on the White Heron?

Are all of these SOOC?

The great white egret was

Saturation +1

Only PP was Picasa I'm Feeling Lucky (one step fix for lighting and color)

On a monopod.

I have it set for Sharpness +1.

The auto bracket works - takes 3 pictures but my focus was off. The light is getting dim in the back yard because of the shade. I'll try more tomorrow.
