Au contraire', Sarah. In SRAuto, it does EXTREMELY well as witnessed here http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fu...-few-hs10.html and here http://forums.steves-digicams.com/wi...3874-hawk.html

Thanks for clearing that up, Gary-

I did not realize that the SR or Scene Recognition Mode functioned as an Auto Mode. I stand corrected. That makes the HS-10 an excellent choice for the wife's camera.

No worries, Sarah. It's just another overlooked feature of the HS-10. It really IS an amazing camera, no?

That is why my wife got an epl-1, she likes the image quality of the 500D, but want something smaller with similar image quality. 4/3 sensor in a small package. Add a long zoom, fast prime and macro and done, dslr quality in a smaller package that covers what she like to shoot

And when she do not feel like using manual setting. It is as easy as our old olympus stylus point and shoot. Pop it in scene mood, and done.

Keeps me out of hot water, and she gets the quality she want

My wife hates all things technical, she will not change a lens or take any action other than zoom and press the magic button. This will be "her" camera for use when kids are out or zoo.
