Gonna try to get some pics of birds in my backyard later today. My mom just bought a SX50HS and a cheap Nikon compact .. Some of these shots actually look pretty good.

EDIT: Well haven't really made any pictures during daylight so far! Have taken some indoor pictures at ISO 1600, 1/15th and F3.4.. Haven't seen the full res results though, but at least I have steady hands.. Camera seems very responsive though, quite easy to learn and the hotshoe for an external flash might help some people indoors.

I'm pretty much stating the obvious when saying that this camera is not meant for low light. Anyway, first time I actually know what I'm doing with a camera and went to full manual immediately. So many more options regarding autofocus etc. Automatic seems to be stuck on AF Tracking, not sure if it's possible to change this.

Quite cloudy and dark outside.. Shot at around 600mm equivalent, 1/250th, ISO 800, F5.6 I think. (SOOC)

Shot this through a window by the way. Definitely not a great picture, but the current conditions make it a lot harder to get a nice shot.

Anyway, even at 1200mm, it's quite easy to keep the camera steady. Definitely going to shoot in sunny conditions next time, need higher shutter speeds.

2nd picture was one day earlier.. Kind of like how it turned out. I think I've got some really nice pictures of another bird, but I haven't checked those yet.

Ok another picture. Did some very basic editing with standard windows software. I personally like the colours in this one, but that's mainly because of the slight processing. Seems like the current camera JPEG settings are relatively flat, but won't change that until the owner of the camera agrees :).

I'm afraid that's a classic example of why you need to turn off digital zoom. Looks a lot softer than the optics would provide.

So Jon am i reading that when you zoom in with the SX50HD the digital zoom needs to be off to get a sharper picture??

Yep. All digital zoom does is try to split pixels up into more pixels. It's bad enough when you're at 2x or full 4x digital zoom where it makes each pixel into 4 or 16 smaller ones (modified by what the adjoining pixels started out as), but at the various in-between steps the camera may be trying to figure out what to do to split a pixel up into, say, 5 or 13, smaller ones, or to merge 2 or more pixels and split them up. If you need that extra reach, you're better off trying to achieve it by shooting RAW and resampling in post-processing where you can use a variety of algorithms to see which one works best for your given situation.

my camera came yesterday and all the interesting local birds disappeared. These were the only two guys interested in posing for a photoshoot today.

Thanks for the encouragement, Jon. One of the first pictures I have ever taken with a non point and shoot camera and the first picture I ever posted here. Don't worry, there won't be a second. I didn't realize the self-important elitism going on here since the home page calls this group "The best and most friendly photo forum on the net!"

Funny stuff, indeed.

Hey, he wasn't mean about it. Full of ourselves, are we? ;)


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."
