Basic HS Series Settings

Personally I do not like any EXR mode, but do like the Dynamic Range of the EXR sensor in a non EXR mode.

To get this, I have my camera set to 'A' mode and lock down the ISO to 100. In the settings, turn Noise Reduction to Low and Sharpness set to Soft. This is a must due to the 'water colour' effect this sensor produces. You will need to Post Process afterword. For the Dynamic Range, set your Image size to 'M' and myself, I keep my Dynamic Range set to Auto. In a non EXR mode you can still get Dynamic Range up to 400% as long as you have the Image Size set to 'M'.

Curious, did you have the Image Stabilization turned on for your long shots?

I do not have the HS25, I have the HS20. But I believe these settings hold true for the HS20, HS25 & HS30. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I love the range of features and control this camera offers. It's not a perfect device, but it does get the job done once you go through it's learning curve.

Best of luck!
