    Here are some jpegs straight out of camera from my first week with this camera.

    Skylark at 1200mm, the long end of its optical zoom.


    Hmmmmm, ok do I need to upload images to a site like photobucket before I can share them here? If so I don't think I'll be posting much on the site. I like uploading straight from my hard drive, I am just missing how to do that here?

    Thanks, I managed to spot Mikes post about this earlier. Just need to resize my images now as I think they are currently too large.

    The most important thing I have learnt from using this camera is to not keep it in the "standard" Jpeg setting, as the results are soft images completely lacking in fine detail. Changing to "vivid" and putting sharpening to +2 and noise reduction to -1 or -2 has made a world of difference to the results I'm getting.

    I think this is the case with most of these cameras if shooting jpeg.i did nearly the same with my P900 but no NR.

    Interesting. I have never played with my picture profile settings because I figure I can only make it worse but I guess it has those modes for a reason. I know the Sony crowd has preferences for doing video for sure.

    I think most of us are used to shooting raw and so do not expect to see a 90% finished image when we download,jpeg is to us the finished article and when you think how many different ways it can be finished we should set in camera jpeg settings.
