Great photos Juan, I agree, the Fuji XS-1 is still a very capable camera and many times I have been thinking of selling mine but then I take some more photos with it and just bring myself to let it go. Here are some of my latest :-

Brobach Chantry, West Dean, Wiltshire, England

Wild Crocus

Woodland Trees

Flint & Stone Wall of Brobach Chantry

What are your settings for this.  For the life of me, I cannot get my X-S1 to do good bird/wildlife shots.  Mine does not want to work with me.  Those are fantastic.

Hello:

My settings are quite simple, always shoot Manual and probably the only thing I do a little bit different is to use Average Exposure Mode instead of Matrix, always shoot in RAW and use ACR to process images.

I have learned that using ISO320 gives you probably the same image quality than using ISO200 and a lot better image quality than using ISO400 (maybe is just my idea) also I always shoot using burst mode but I do always 2 shots per image.

That is basically it, the camera does the rest.

Look at the exif info of the images

Thanks for the information. I had my cameras setup to Steve ingraham's settings in his book. I will try what you suggest and report back.  Thanks

I use Aperture or Shutter Priority adjusting ISO and maintaining Super High shutter to be sure to be able to capture bird action.
