Nice shot Henry. Yes, I think I will use the remote quite a bit.

Here's a few more photos.

I tested out the manual mode, and took some night shots. These were on a tripod and I used the self timer function to prevent shake. I also used the touch focus function on the Lcd. You can use up to 15 seconds for the shutter mode. Night shots are doable for sure.

Those BSI CMOS sensors have come a long way since the SZ-30MR came out. Here is what I can do with it, on a tripod, in 'Fireworks' SCENE mode only, at 2 seconds -

It is better than what the CCD in my Stylus 9010 gives me, but in this SZ-30MR shot there might be less sharpening and more detail in the dark stone work of the buildings.

I have since discovered that a wired remote that I used on my Xz1 works with the Sh50. I'm glad I kept the remote now! It will help for macro and night shots!

That is worth knowing. Like you, I am using shutter delays right now.

Henry
