Pictures from Dante's Prize

Hey guys,

Here are the picturesfrom Dante's Prize.

This time, I used the Fuji as opposed to my Canon. The effect is different than what I get with the latter. I think I won some effects such as movement and the glint of steel in the sun. I don't like the fact that the movement sometimes appears blurred. If you look at the surroundings, everything else is crisp. This is the effect of a slower speed shutter.

Slower speed is which is great for taking night shots, museum shots, and that nifty effect of vehicles in movement that makes them look like a streak in front of a static building. As for action shots, I like the effect of flying scarves and cloaks, but I am not sure if I prefer the faster speed of my Canon which freezes them in place.

At any rate, you will judge for yourself.

It did just fine on the non-fighting, portrait shots, but I don't care for the blurred movement either. Does it have a 'sports mode'?

They were shot with the "sports mode" preset. Just not sure what the settings are associated with that preset. I'll have to dig out the manual and see if there is something I missed when setting it up that may have thrown things off.

Yeah, like Ballistabob said. That was the sports mode. Not only that, but the light was too bright and I had to correct it on my PC. I hate having to doctor the pictures, but there was no other way. It was so awash on light that it was hard to see. I'll have to play with other functions.

The thing is, we have taken beautiful pictures at museums with this camera in the past, as well as interior pictures and night ones. It was worth a try though.

I like these :)

I'm not seeing much motion blur - in a couple of places, but I didn't actually notice it until you pointed it out! This could be because I was mostly swordplay/costume nerding though :P
