Re: Kenn

Hi Kenn.

I've started to take a few RAW shots and began trying some PP in LR4 and Silky. I must say that this isn't one of my strong points because just about all the pics I've had a go at (apart from just adding some brightness) weren't much better than the JPG's.

Even though the HS 20/30 are a small sensor cameras they don't do a bad job of taking a photo but as we can see there are trade off's associated. If Fuji decided to better the IQ on this range I reckon they would be on a big winner.

All these photos were taken with noise reduction at standard I might move back on to low setting and do another series to see how the detail improves.

Not that is news to most on the forum but its a bit of a nightmare taking black and white or even grey and white (gulls) subjects in very bright light. One thing I did learn was not to use use spot photometry on these sort of subjects. I have some quite interesting blown out and dark shots....

Thanks for the comments.
