Default Fz100 - 400 iso

Hello all,

I received my FZ100 this morning and couldn't wait to have a go with it, horrrible day here in the UK, dull and raining. Both these were made at 400 ISO and then I used PS7 to fiddle with them, Lab Colour fiddle to reduce what little noise there was, Hipass filter to add a bit of sharpness and slight touch of Colour balance, then reduced to 800 px long side.







I'm delighted :-)

Jim

Welcome Jim-

We're delighted that you dropped by. We're a friendly, helpful, and welcoming group. I would venture the opinion that, you got the most you could from both photos. The pp'ing helped to overcome the ISO 400 setting and the results are quite pleasing indeed.

If you go to no more than 750 to 800 pixels on the longest side of the posted photo they will display much better to your readers.

Hi Sarah and thanks for the welcome, thats nice of you. I've altered the pics to 800 px long side and edited my post.

I do think this camera has had a bad press which is totally undeserved. Once I've sorted out some PS actions to cover, noise, not very much noise and a lot of noise, I will be able to do some preliminary processing in seconds. My printer will only take A4 paper anyway and the quality will be ideal for that.

Warmest wishes - Jim

Eyup Phil and thanks for the welcome, I'm grateful to you.

I went into Clay Cross this afternoon and tried the camera at 100 ISO, here's one of the results;


The image looked so good I thought I would try a crop;


After doing this I upsized the crop to 7.5" x 10" @300 dpi and printed it, it looked very good indeed I'm please to say.

Warmest wishes - Jim

G'day Mick,

Thanks for the welcome, I'm hoping for a good day here, soon, ish, whenever, today they said Sunny, it's dull and cloudy.

Though nothing like you've had in Oz.

Warm wishes - Jim

Welcome Jim.

If you like the FZ now, you'll LOVE it when the sun comes out.
