Re: HS50EXR vs SL1000.Anyone compared these 2 camera?

Hi Mitchy, thanks for your constructive criticism. I have seen a number of posts about settings and I'm keen to experiment. The moon shot was one of my first photos straight out of the box and whilst it is flawed in many ways it was at least encouraging. I think I'm going to enjoy my HS50. I got my first camera (a Kodak box camera) at a church jumble sale 60 years ago. Photography was relatively simple then - make an educated guess about light, select speed/aperture, shuffle around to frame the subject, point and click; Now I have retired and put my camel that used to carry my sack of SLR lenses out to pasture I must learn to use a new and far more complicated tool. If you have any recommended reading material to help me along the way please let me know. My main interests are wildlife (often with rapid movement) and the stunning scenery we have here in Australia. I agonised between the S1 and the HS50 before deciding to go with the latest and greatest zoom.
