Can't get my camera to do what I want it to. These are pretty close to what I am seeing.

Yeah, I guess I'm kind of weird like that.

Seriously, all of your shots are great as usual. Looks like you are getting some really great light output there!

Awesome Tom, they have great uniformity, sharpness/detail and contrast. What size/type screen are you using?

That's 32x more exposure than a more typical 1 sec at ISO 100. Maybe Auto mode was fighting to overcompensate for the dark scenes.

I love the extra detail shown in Kong's forehead, but does the native frame shows that much? Is that what it looks like on your screen?

Regardless of the exposure levels, the focus, sharpness, convergence, and uniformity look incredible.

Playing around with the "LANDSCAPE" setting in the camera for the first time. That setting blocks out most of the camera settings, which makes it easier to point and shoot. I like the way it looks so far, but can't tell what resolution the camera is using...

Those look good. Nice shadow detail in the last one abd the bright spots in her skin are under the clipping limit.

Here are the settings LANDSCAPE mode used:

Thanks for that Clarence. Those numbers indicate a lot of things. It's really amazing to see that much data also being in the images.

I've taking a few shots from Kong hoping to get a better look at the differences being in the "Landscape" mode. Not really sure of what I'm seeing so far, but I like this setting better than anything before..

dropzone7, those are really cool shots! I have a question. I'm very impressed with your last picture. How did you take it? I've been trying with my Canon Powershot SD400 and it cannot do good screenshots on dim scenes.

Thanks! I'm really trying to get better, not only at the convergence but also at my screen shots. Here is the data from the last picture. I just played around with "manual" mode until I got something that closely resembled what I was seeing on the screen.

I took this one last night as well but did not post it at first because I thought the shadows made it look like she had a brown nose!

Here's an older screen shot with my Cannon G2, recently got the Rebel XTi and will have to see what I can do with that camera.
