Tabby looks great! (Looks like my cat)

To my eyes, most P&S cameras do well with portraits. For me, the
real test of IQ is landscapes or architecture. Getting some real
distance between the lens and a subject with fine detail will
better tell the tale.
Any chance of a few landscape pics?

My usual subjects are fit, trim in simple things... so off I went to see if I could do what is being asked for, well out the front door is nothing but cars so I wne to my back yard and this is my version of Landscape (for what it is worth).

Turned off flash, set to M, 1/60 - F:4.3 the proceeded to do a series of ISO tests, AutoWB, 400/800/1600 (all hand held - the damn this fits nice in my hands).

ISO:400 (this one was a bit different ??)

Original: "

ISO:400 (stooped to shoot the rest)

ISO:800

ISO:1600

I will see how it takes on my D2Xs and D200 this weekend in the studio with it "my type of landscape".

Shutter lag is not bad, recover for next shot is decent.

  • Using a 2GB Lexr Pro (133x) memory card.

  • Added a second battery (just in case).

  • Lowepro Rezo 50 Camera Bag is what I choose to harness the beast.
