And here is another ISO 1600 photo that is not shadowed. Again AWB under sodium vapor lighting.

Thanks mtnclimber,

Very good for the smaller sensor. It may be worth giving a bit of low light for the 10x zoom. At 1600iso, the noise is not to bad, and can be worked on with editing.

That is exactly how I feel, shoturtle-

If software like neat image was applied they would look even better.

Run it through a noise reduction program. add some sharpening and it would be a usable photo.

Here is that first photo after a trip through Neat Image. As you can see all the lighting was from above.

Sarah-

Seems like you are enjoying the new HX-5. Pictures look good. The ones of the peppers and the bird are so clear (at least in my opinion they are). I'd be very happy with that IQ.

Could you please tell me more about Neat Image? What does it do, how do you use it and where do you get it?

Looking forward to more photos.

Thanks.

It removes noise - you also can use Noise Ninja.
