Re: A problem with my Fuji H10 - Help!!

On the assumption that the batteries are correctly inserted (if it is like my Canon S2 IS two must face up and two down) it sounds like your new batteries might be faulty or insufficiently charged. Have you tested with new alkaline batteries?
If it still does not work it sounds like bad luck as it is most likely a faulty camera :wall:

VG, have your tried resetting the camera??? most models have a RESET button placed on the bottom and keeping it pressed for 3-5 seconds it resets your camera to factory settings. Just a thought.

Fujifilm Advise?!

Unread post by mattmillielibby » Thu Jul 21, 2011 3:45 pm

Hello, we have a Fujifilm Finepix HS 10, not the most snazzy camera but it does a very good job. Just wondered if anyone has any experience with it and what the best setting for the park would be?! Thanks!

Yes, I bought one in Oct last year, and used it for the first time in December in Kruger and again in March in Kruger.
I was completely new to photography, so didn't think a DSLR would suit me, and I was right.

The Fuji HS10, is so easy to handle (I have arthritic wrists, so can't hold anything too heavy)

I must admit because I am a newbie, I have always left it on Auto, other than when I wanted to shoot a sunrise, and so changed the setting. :redface:

I am really pleased with it and have been told that some of my pics that I posted in my TR in March 2011 are quite good. The ones taken in December were just OK, but that was down to the photographer not the camera, as I was a real newbie then!! :redface:

It is a good compromise between a compact and a DSLR in my opinion.

The 30x zoom is excellent.

Hope you enjoy using yours.!! :dance: :dance:

My SO just bought a Fujifilm HS20EXR camera and testes it out on A (Aperture Priority AE) so that you can set your aperture on different F stop and the camera will automatically adjust the speed. Secondly the highlights are overexposed so he suggest to set the sensitivity to -1/3. (push the +/- button next to the shutter release and turn the setting dial so that the pointer on the screen goes 2 stops to the left) Rather shoot in Raw as well instead of JPEG so that you have more information to adjust when editing.

He is also new with this camera and wiil try it out tomorrow shooting birds at Marievale near Joburg

I don't know the camera at all, but indeed, if you can shoot in RAW, do so! You will never regret it.
Bit more work to get your photos right, but then they are right.....
