Welcome and good luck with your new camera. Stop by the Fuji forum and post a few pics once in a while.

Looks like a couple of boats on dry land...Bay of Fundy?

petertherock-

Welcome to this wonderful forum. The Fuji S-5200/S-5600 is really a great digital camera and I think that you will really enjoy it. We will look forward to seeing you in the Fujifilm section.

:|I just got an S5200 and I agree - it's an awesome camera! I think mine is the first one in my part of the country - I ordered it before it was released to the stores, in fact, it's still not in stock. This thing takes really good pictures, and in circumstances my old digicam, a Canon A75, wouldn't even work.At first, I thoughtthe Anti-Blur mode was a gimmick, but it actually works, as does Natural Light. I've taken a few shots at ISO 800 and there's no noticeable noise. Amazing!Love the S5200!

I certaily agree with you. The Fuji S-5200 is a great camera in my opinion. Even at ISO 1600 it produces excellent photos.

I don't use a Fuji but my son does and he loves it. And judging by the looks of the pictures posted here, it seems that you've gotten yourself a fine camera.

You asked for some tips re: photography. I know this is the first, or nearly the first, photo you took when you unpacked the camera. I'm assuming you probably took it on one of the pre-set modes. As you get to know your camera better you'll learn to tweak those and to take more control over your shots. For now, I have one piece of advice.

Make sure that the horizon is straight. If you look at your photo, you will notice that the shoreline slants significantly. The crooked horizon is a common error, so don't feel too badly. Fortunately, it's an issue that's easy to fix (on future shots). Just before you shoot your picture take a look at any horizons (skylines, shorelines, etc.) and make sure they are straight.

Now, as for fixing the horizon on this photo, you will have to use your photo editing software to rotate it and crop it. Sometimes this process results in such a drastic crop that you end up with a completely different photo than the one with which you began. And always, always, always save the new photo under a different name. That way you'll end up with two photos in your file, the original and the edited one.

Congrats on your purchase. Shoot lots of photos and post them regularly. The folks on these forums are generally very supportive and knowledgeable.
