That's essentially my issue with the HX5V. It is very capable of producing beautiful photos but when it doesn't there's nothing you do about it.
yes, I agree with you
but, just to make it clear (if it wasn't before)

Pic 1 and 2 are the same, (2 is cropped to 100%)
Pic 6 and 10 are the same (10 is cropped to 100%)
Pic 8 and 9 are the same (9 is cropped to 100%)

So my point is, almost all pictures are nice on screen, in print sizes, but when zooomed in to 100% they do have a bit to much NR, with all those pictures I was zoomed in 100%, in two of them (the birds) the sun was very bright, some of the pics got that day got 1/1000 or more shutter speeds despite being zoomed in)
and the rabbit day it was a bit cloudy, not that much sun. and it was taken in sportsmode I belive (was sitting in the car when the moment happened )

I meant even in small prints. I never concern myself with 100%. Generally they look very good but if you get into a situation where the camera thinks the grass is noise (for example) then you're stuck since you have no control over NR. My issue is with the complete lack of control available. My wife loves it for just that reason though.

Here's a panoramic gone awry due to the sunlight. We took 3 and all 3 came out like this. They all looked fine on that crappy LCD of course. However, I still think the panorama mode is extremely well done. Nothing is perfect.

hello everyone

i have a question regarding the burst mode, if I shot with 10fps how is the focus maintained? can one expect better or worse results when shooting in the dark at that speed?

just curious, because if I take one pic and I get 1/8 shutter, how will the cam behave? will the 10fps be more like 8fps or will it up the shutter, with less light and higher iso?

I believe the focus is fixed at the first shot.

6 dogs? I have 3 and I thought that was a lot. My GSD breeder has 12+ though living in her house. I wonder where her husband sleeps ...
