... I find these settings work in all situations.

Program (P) mode, large (L) size, 4:3, Fine, Raw+Jpeg, DR 200%, ISO 800 (Auto), Astia, Highlight Tone - Medium Soft, Shadow Tone - Medium Soft, Noise Reduction - Medium Low, minus 0.33 EV, Photometry - Average, AF Tracking.

You can always set them as one of your custom settings (C1, C2). See page 46 of the manual.

I'm getting ready for a trip to the mountains, and my compact (Olympus TG-1) struggles in bright sunshine, when there's overwhelming contrast. I will be shooting mostly people (kids) and some landscapes. How does XF-1 handle this scenario? Does the high-dynamic-range EXR-DR handle it, or is it only for low-light situations?

Thank you!
