Really getting the hang of the camera.  as some of the shots will show I tired using in the in camera HDR painting effect.  Very good.  Fun camera to use rather than bringing the DSLR along.  Good luck to all.

Very nice. It's a fun camera. Were your shots hand-held?

Yes, the shots were hand held, but when photographing animals I bring along a monopod.  But image stabilization is very good on the HX 50.  Thanks for your comment.  A very fun camera indeed.  Fits in my front pocket or around my neck with a strap and tucked inside my shirt.  Less obvious that way.  You pull it out for a quick shot.  I purchased a 10 speed SD memory and that has helped improve the speed slightly.

Today I was at my mother-in-law's 90th birthday party. I took a group photo with my HX50V, wi-fied it to my iPad, did a little PP, and posted it to facebook all in a matter of minutes. We've come a long way since the film days.

I tell my nephew how in the old days of film you needed to carry around a light meter and be in control of your photographic abilities.  We are all spoiled now with digital, but for the most part I set up the shot with the depth of field I want and correct white balance, then allow the camera to do the metering and exposure.  So I'm semi-manual!

Good luck to all!
