Should have added that the white balance (the one that offers flash, shade, full sun etc) was set to auto and image optimization to "vivid".

9 Dec, 2011

 

not sure i have those options??

9 Dec, 2011

 

Be in the menu...........

9 Dec, 2011

 

i looked but couldnt find it, will check in my little book.

that moon is bigger than mine!!

Used a cheap telephoto lens that someone gave me! Not the best quality, but better than nowt!

Laa la. It is brilliant Meanie. I am tempted to root out a camera with screw on bits.

9 Dec, 2011

 

no screw on bits here, could do with something that would fix the strap - so that i could attach it to where the tripod would normally go.

Just looked online - what I call white balance comes under the tone menu on yours. Image optimization is under the My Colours menu on yours.

No wonder I didn't see it, didn't know I had tone or my colours!

There is such a lot on this camera, it's a clever little thing. Only wish I was half so clever.

You are very good on this stuff, thanks again meanie.

I found an online manual for your camera!!!

10 Dec, 2011

 

Found them, many many thanks,
They were already on vivid and auto, there is an option to customise that and the camera will even remember optimum settings which is great. Wish I had a memory like the camera.

You been awake all night?

10 Dec, 2011

 

Nah...........woke up at 5.30.

10 Dec, 2011

 

I've been out since 4:30 Not one decent shot to show for it. Found some poor blokes driving licence and credit cards though...bet his car was robbed when he came to watch Man City match the other day.

10 Dec, 2011

 

I went out again this morning, got all dressed up for the cold, and guess what - a cloud blocked out the moon, in fact a whole bank of cloud, that's it now, maybe try again tonight?
Got a whole day to myself - fabulous!!

10 Dec, 2011

 

That is a perfect day!

10 Dec, 2011

 

Thank you Meanie for your help - will try to take a pic of full moon with your settings. :)

10 Dec, 2011

 

We could have a monthly moon comp..! Enjoy it Sticki.

10 Dec, 2011

 

Definitely meanie! Best sort I think,

Thanks pimpernel, I will!
Moon competition? Well I wouldn't win but I would like seeing all the pictures and finding out how they were done.

10 Dec, 2011

 

that's a great shot Meanie..

11 Dec, 2011

 

When you say best you can do free hand - do you mean it's better with a tripod?

11 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks Surreylad!

Better with a tripod Sticki - more so if you are using a telephoto lense, but even with a standard camera lens.......

11 Dec, 2011

 

Will have another go tonight if the rain and clouds disappear.

11 Dec, 2011

 

This is a great shot.

15 Dec, 2011

 

Check Bampy's out Homebird!

Meanie:

Postcard perfect!

17 Dec, 2011

 

Not quite Delonix, but my best so far.

18 Dec, 2011

 

I can see the new moon through the window, might have another go!

18 Dec, 2011

 

Bit cloudy, should have taken the opportunity when I saw it!
