Interesting, they look like low light but the sky is probably very bright.

You might need an external ND filter.

I don't think I have ever owned or seen a small sensor camera that went smaller the f8.


Thanks. I remember seeing f22 on previous cameras and made the (false) assumption all manual control was the same.

You won't see much smaller than f/8 on any compact digicam.  The physical opening of the aperture is directly proportional to the sensor size.  The smaller the sensor, the smaller the aperture.

What you'll need is a neutral density filter, but you'll then need very long shutter speeds so it's also dependent on how long of a shutter you can set on the S110.
