From Dawn 'Till Dusk

Leaving for work on a cold and clear late Autumn morning I was treated to the beginning of the dawn with a crescent Moon and Venus in the early morning sky.
The day stayed fine and clear and as I crested the Kaimai Ranges on the way home I was treated to one of the best clear day sunsets for a long time.
Of course the HS10 was with me. These are the last photos I will be taking with the Fuji HS10. After careful deliberation I have ordered its replacement the Fuji HS20EXR. The HS10 was a company leased piece of equipment and the lease period is now up for renewal. I have decided not to renew and instead buy a new HS20EXR as it is now considerably better priced than the HS10 was when new.

Almost Gone.
Out on the Horizon.

  1. I will be interested to see what you think of the HS20.
    I think it is easily the best superzoom I have owned, but it definitely takes time to get the best out of it. It is not a camera for those that love to shoot in auto, but for me, I love the flexibility and extra options for different light.
    It really is quite good for a small sensor cam.

  2. I think it will be very similar in learning curve to that of the HS10. At least I hope so.

    I will be doing an in depth series on it once I have had a chance to look over the basic operations.
    As I have a good volume of images taken with other Fuji cameras I should be able to make some comparisons before too long.
