Nice shots! I like the swirly bokeh of that lens. Looks as if this camera handles reds well.

Thank you! In the last image, of the red tulips, I did adjust the H/S/L sliders. I pushed the reds to the orange side, beefed up saturation, and pulled down luminance. It was OK as is, but I wanted something richer.

HDR

Seeing the Marktax's HDR sample above I wanted to try out the other HDR settings on the K-S2 here is a quick comparison:


A SOOC JPEG


HDR Setting 1


HDR Setting 2


HDR Setting 3

I think with HDR setting 1 I could probably have gotten a similar effect processing the raw. but its good to see what availabel ranges there are.

Not sure if it's possible to post some pictures taken from K-S1 here as both cameras are sharing the same sensor?

Well, you could start a new thread "Post your K-S1 shots here".

That was my intention when I started the "Fun with the S1" thread - that it would be a place to show off the K-S1. Rather like the "No more tests just pictures" thread.

K-S2 Test Shots

Picture of the German Shepherd was taken with the 18-50 Kit Lens. which i actually enjoy using.
f/5.6
1/100
ISO 400
+.3 exposure
50mm

Bee was shot with my 28-250mm Promaster 3.8
f/5.6
1/500
ISO 100
200mm

Dandelion was shot with the 18-50mm Kit lens as well
f/ 5.6
1/125
ISO 100
50mm

loving this camera so far, but theres a lot of new features like clarity enhancement and the AA filter the exposure bracketing. composite images and even interval shooting with the GPS/ star trails. Overwhelming a bit.

Would like to see the same shots with Highlight Protection turned on fairly aggressively. Curious if that would help.

was playing around with the promaster 19-35mm spectrum 7.
felt like i could have pushed the aperture higher.
but love the composition of these.
