I held my finger an inch in front of the flash to diffuse the light and shot this macro indoors

Shooting into strong light

This seaweed smelled like cat pee

Trunks and stumps drift onshore from logging activity

Shooting into very strong light

If you continue like this, you will make me buy the F300, the last of the SCCD Fuji cameras. I will continue to be stuck with older Fuji cams, I don't like where digital camera market is going now.

Yeah I wondered why the blown highlights were so severe, I assumed that the sensor had reached its limits but for some reason, out of the blue, it selected 100ISO and 100% DR, go figure.

Really nice and enjoyable pictures. Keep them coming.

My son is using it now, but the F300exr is really a joy to use.

I have just realised what was wrong, while I was on the beach I must have moved the dial from P mode to half way between EXR mode and Auto mode. Thanks for mentioning it, I may not have checked otherwise.

I shot these today on a cloudy day with the settings dial half way between EXR mode and P mode, most of my shots blew the highlights which reminded me how awful non EXR sensors are and why X10 owners should not part with their cameras, having come this far with them.
