abusing the X10's sensor

The dr capabilities are pretty amazing:

Took a late evening stroll down to the river, the sun was falling quickly and extremely strong …I had to shield my eyes to reduce the glare yet the little camera, without using any dr extention could grab most of the exposure

the sun blasting through the trees and off of the rivers water was also intense

zoom a little to the right and the colors look good even though there is nothing scenic to look at

the sun really is starting to fall but the tree tops look warm

darkness is near

I quickened my pace to get home

sorry that most have the exif stripped, resaving the jpgs was allowing the blown areas to become too defined and for some reason cs5 was more gentle to that area when saved for web….

Yeah. I downloaded some of the (12MP) samples from photographyblog.com and played around with exposure, shadows, etc. and the DR does seem to be pretty darn good.

Re: abusing the X10's sensor

In particular the first one is very impressive. Did you happen to take two shots - one "normal" and one high DR? Thanks.

Re: abusing the X10's sensor

Nice work there. I like the two first best and I also like to try and capture the light in that way. Over the years I've noticed that it is far fro every compact which manages to do it quite well though.
Some of my attempt in an other thread.

Re: abusing the X10's sensor

Fantastic pictures, but is not it dangerous to aim the camera (its sensor) to a direct sun light?

Wasn't the thread title "abusing the X10's sensor"?

Probably depend on how long. I have a scar on my cameraphone sensor, seem to have left it exposed one sunny day. But I've shoot into the sun with my old S60 quite a few times with no consequences. The sensor failed after 4 years but that was an unrelated production flaw as was replaced under (expired) warranty.

Re: abusing the X10's sensor

I think Fuji cameras as a whole cope very well with preserving highlights when objects are rear lit. Even when the light is directly into the sun...

This taken from my S100fs - no PP, just compressed to take up less space on DPreview.
