A Few From Panama - HS50EXR

Still have hundreds of photos to go through from Panama but I thought I'd post a few. All Jpegs with some post processing.

As I look through these, I have to say that the HS50 really did perform pretty well for the most part (I haven't gotten to the rest of the monkey shots and others that were in more difficult shooting conditions).

I used the entire focal length range throughout the trip and was SO happy to have that 1000mm! The manual zoom, I feel, was critical in getting some of the shots. I think a motorized zoom would have been awful in comparison.

I tried macro mode for the first time and that seemed to work pretty well. I also tried the Panorama mode. Very fun but kind of finicky. I might have been doing it wrong so I have to investigate that. Most of the time, I got one error message or another and it failed. I did manage to get one to work though.

Here's a few and more on my Pbase page...


From the observation tower at the Locks

Out of hundreds taken, this is one of a few flying bird shots that were a success.

We were treated to a show in one of the hotels

This is the one time the Pano mode worked. View from the Gamboa Rainforest Resort

I'll post more in the coming weeks, adding on to the gallery I started on Pbase...
