Re: Why is there no love for the HX300..?

Paul I don't claim to be 10% smarter than this camera; I'm just dabbling - finding my way. These photos are not for any purpose other than my opportunity to gain a 'record-shot' as already stated.

Sure, I'd really love to get CRISPER photos - but that's asking for big-dollar results for a small-dollar outlay. It's not going to happen, it's expecting too much.

If you have suggestions, as to settings to gain better photo-opportunities for birds especially; I'll take them on board with gratitude.

You asked for 'photos' and I've resized them as you suggested 1920 pixels/longest side. Always hand-held.

I see that you are using automatic mode... the constant 1/250 speed and ISO800/1600. 
The best way to get good shots is stay away from automatic mode!
Push youself and try new modes! Try using burst mode and choose the best pic at home.
I have found my way to get some usable shots out HX300 and I happy with it.
