The first one was EXR HR mode, M size. The second one was using the Pop Filter found in the Advance mode. How has been your experience with the camera till now?

Re: HS50: Mallard and a Sparrow

Joms. etc- where did you guys buy your HS50 from? Im looking to get mine from B and H, just waiting for them to open their online store up again, it is 533 there right now plus taxes and shipping.

On the other hand I just might go to the store there this week and avoid all the nervous worry about shipping issues haha- their store is only 45 min from my house!

I do not have it, i am just looking what this cam can do. Unfortunately I live in Brazil, so I have to wait a few months and pay 60% of taxes to get it.

But there is a thing that are disturbing me. Image Noise.

60 percent wow! It might be cheaper to fly to NYC get one and fly back (not really but close lol..... plus you'd get a lot of photo ops here!)

Hi, your sparrow looks over cooked. What post processing have you done to it? What does the original look like?

Apologies if my lack of photographic knowledge is catching.

Yeap! If I buy some clothes, one watch, a sunglass and camera, will be more cheap fly to miami. I have already did the calculate. Brazil sucks! But wait, some more months and I will post my birding shots. Try search "arara", "alma de gato", "bem-te-vi"...

Thanks Joms, I hope so too. One final checkbox is the raw support in LR. If that works well, then the only reason to give it back would be to use the money to supplement my the slr gear

Noise is a problem I agree, hopefully we can get a firmware fix but until then NR software should be able to handle some of it. And yes, I think you should plan a trip to States soon and get a good deal. Looking forward to you bird shots.

I agree it does. I forgot to switch modes after trying out the Pop filter (which is designed to overcook everything, including harmless, posing sparrows). That, and I probably messed up a bit in the PP. Here is the original, since you asked. Looks better I think

Thank you KJ. I agree it does but is useful in certain shots only.

I had a play. I don't know what the pop filter is but you original has high contrast and you seem to have added a fraction more. I lowered the highlights and tried to lift shadows on the original, seemed to help a little.
