Ok ... When I am taking photos and reviewing them they look great on the LCD. The colours pop out its very contrasty & when I zoom (on preview to check sharpness) it all seems good.
When I import photos to Lightroom , they seem to have lost their punch , contrast and sharpness. I know some of this could be attributed to viewing on a smaller screen but its annoying in a way because I think I got the shot then I have to tweak a fair bit to get it to resemble what is on the LCD screen .
Could it be something to do with monitor calibration or colour space?
Seen many of these things on my time on submarines, they love to swim with subs, dont know why.
Anyway, this is my first time seeing one outside of the navy and the first i photographed, sadly, only got one photo
Have a look here: http://www.myfinepix.es/blog/821923/611142
whilst im out try to capture butterflies and birds i raise my camera look through my view finder and by the time i have focused its gone. even when i dont need to zoom in and catch something in and instant i still have to press the button halfway to focus before i can take the shot.
is there a way i can just point and shoot then i should be able to crop later to see if i captured my subject, will it be in focus and will the lighting be ok these are other factors i must consider ?
I know this topic has been covered to death but I was wondering could anyone recommend good chargers for AA batteries and what places you would recommend buying them from?
From what I have read Enelope is the way to go but could anyone recommend any similar type of battery so I can compare and get the best for my needs.
I have added a couple of peacock photos to my gallery from a visit to Kirby Hall last weekend. The pictures are the links.
This one I tweaked a little contrast and colour wise though not a huge amount, cropped as well for the close up as originally had a reasonable amount of the plumage but not enough to make sense - looked scruffy hence the crop.
Hi everyone, I bought an HS30 about 10 months ago and I'm still learning. Had a Finepix S1500 before that I still use for work as a (semi-retired) marine electrician. Before that an Oly E-10, 2 Casios and a Vivitar back in the 90s when digital cameras first appeared on the scene.
Hope to learn new things here and possibly contribute something in return.
Hello to All,
When shooting with my HS30 in aperture priority or manual I don't see any real difference in my depth of field. Even if I drop my f/stop all the way. I notice a little blurr of the background, nothing like I'm used to with my other cameras. The only way I find to achieve a very dramatic affect is to get a football field away from my subject and zoom in. This does not work well when you are shooting in a small room but want to bring your subject to the foreground and blurr the distracting background. Any tips, tricks or advice is greatly appreciated.
