Sierra-Nevada Mt. Hike Fuji HS35EXR
7 months ago

Had a beautiful hike today in our Sierra's with gf and both dogs at Bassi Falls. Weather was chilly at altitude (approximately 7,200') with threat of rain and then full sun. These were shot in M, Velvia, P mode set to ISO 100, DR100 or 200, and EXR set at DR Auto, and Velvia. Also in P, I have set color to high, tone to soft, sharpness to hard, and noise reduction to standard. I'm trying these last settings for best definition, so a work in progress. All SOOC and as with landscapes view full size.

Appreciate your comments. When I do my part, it's a camera capable or very good images. Still trying to find that magic setting(s) for shape detail, but if not a pixel peeper, it's fine. The handling and build quality on these HS series cams are excellent.

Gary N/W: dig into your landscape galleries and give us a treat..we are much overdue for one of your high Sierra images. Best of health to both of you.

Wonderful pictures and great scenery. Thanks for showing your EXR settings as get my HS50 on Tuesday hopefully and returning to the EXR fold.

Thank you Greynerd. The settings description on the HS50 has different names vs HS35. I've since changed to the following: Sharpness=soft, Color=medium, and for me, either M or L is fine. Love to read your comments on focus speed and lock and general observations on the new camera. Thanks.

Thanks. I have a pass to my local Zoo and will try it out on the flying birds in the falconry display which will be a good test. On sensor PDAF usually not so good in poor light compared with the DSLR's dedicated sensors with the larger aperture available but it will be interesting.

The weather is pretty good here so probably have a play later this week. It is interesting that the HS50 seems not to be considered as a choice amongst super zooms on the other forums.

Hopefully the Exif has buried somewhere whether PDAF or CDAF has been used.

Hi Jim,

You are so kind!  I will try to get some of my landscapes dating back to death valley, Utah, and various indian dwellings and the Grand Canyon, and the Caves there.  We have been all over AZ, CO, CA, OR and WA and Canada.  All images taken with Fuji S602Z regular and Pro versions.  My eyesight is just not up the snuff yet to spend much time viewing the computer.

In the meantime enjoying your HS work tremendously.   Keep them coming my friend.

Best wishes and good health to You and Your Family,

Gary and Betty W  SFO
