F600 EXR images

I was in the market for a new pocket zoom and I tried the Canon 230HS, but the color noise was intolerable in low light. I remembered being impressed with Gordon Wolford's images from his F550 EXR. The F600 EXR was for sale at B&H for about $300, so I gave it a try.

Yes, the lens is crazy soft on the edges at 24mm. But the ACR lens profile by EXR (for the F550) helped this out a great deal. I think much of that softess is due to lens distortion. Thanks EXR!

Otherwise, the camera is just a whole lota fun. Yes, there is a lot of noise over ISO400, but it's mostly chroma and cleans up nicely with ACR and Neat Image.

Oh yeah, shoot in RAW. The JPEG's are just too mushy and over processed.

Here's a few shots that I processed from RAW:
