SX260HS new for trip
osme nice views from the Sunshine Coast.
The SX 260 is a great little camera and perfect for travelling in good light.
Looks like you have plenty of good light there. Maybe try to underexpose 1/3 stop in order to avoid clipping bright highlights in sunny conditions.
Thanks, I mainly shoot in daylight, here is my settings, they seem to work well:
Centre Weighted Average metering
Icontrast=ON (controls scenes with dark backgrounds and very high bright parts better)
In My Colours; Contrast=+1 (this compensates for Icontrast reducing contrast sometimes depending on the scene DR).
Spot and centre focus.
