SZ-30MR Auckland x 4

There are so many time-consuming errands that cut into time needed for photography, but I made a point of getting a selection of moods at the water front five minutes walk from our home -

P mode, EV -0.7, WB 'Cloud', handheld

P mode, EV -0.7, WB 'Cloud', handheld

P mode, EV -0.7, WB 'Cloud', hand held

SCENE mode 'Night Portrait' no flash

The first three were straightforward. But with night shots I am still trying to figure out what was in the firmware writer's mind. P mode will not let me set ISO 80. It insists on getting an exposure no longer than 1/4 second and raises the ISO accordingly. SCENE mode 'Night Scene' overexposes regradless of where I aim the rectangle. 'Night Portrait' sets the ISO (800) even higher. But the result is watchable at 1:2 magnification.
