FZ 300 contrast - does yours do this?
1

Hello, everyone.  B&H photos said it sounds like my camera is consistently underexposing my shots. And offered to exchange it or return it.

They said to test it go re-take what I call my postcard effect photos in auto bracketing, between f 5.6 - 8.  I thought I'd get three photos each time but maybe the camera just picked one because I didn't. It was in burst mode. I also turned on HDR.

This is the situation.  A lot of my photos look hazy/washed out.  Here are some comparisons.  It may be user error admittedly, so can you please provide your input on the camera performance with the contrast examples below? vs your experience with the camera (examples much appreciated!)

Thank you so much for your time!  And I really don't want to shoot in bracketing all the time...but if I have to??

postcard effect

is this good contrast? bracketing on

contrast? vs....

much more definition!

ships always hazy at full zoom

super pastel, what they all tend to look like.  Contrast problem or atmosphere??

lighter with bracketing

darker with bracketing....one too light, one too dark. No Goldilocks one.

Happy Holidays everyone!
