Hi Brian,

osme nice views from the Sunshine Coast.

The SX 260 is a great little camera and perfect for travelling in good light.

Looks like you have plenty of good light there. Maybe try to underexpose 1/3 stop in order to avoid clipping bright highlights in sunny conditions.

Thanks, I mainly shoot in daylight, here is my settings, they seem to work well:

P mode

Centre Weighted Average metering


Icontrast=ON (controls scenes with dark backgrounds and very high bright parts better)

In My Colours;  Contrast=+1 (this compensates for Icontrast reducing contrast sometimes depending on the scene DR).

Spot and centre focus.
