After many tests with the HS50EXR, I found that I can not use the camera due to color bleed. I initially thought it was a focus problem, but the focus is fine and the lack of detail on semy distant objects all through infinity is because of the colors running into each other. Or so I understand.
I always liked the Fiji colors, but this camera has let me down...(It could be also something defective on my camera and not to the model). Anyway, I've been looking at the X-S1, and it seems to be sharper and with a biger sensor.
Can anyone confirm it? I'm thinking of returning my camera to Amazon and\or exchanging it for the X-S1...
If you want to look at some trial shots in my gallery, (http://www.myfinepix.co.uk/gallery/1155693), feel free, I'll love to hear your thoughts.

My thanks to those that entered, as there were so few though, I am just going to pick a winner and that is :-
Brian. Beautiful shot, great low viewpoint, the low sun gives wonderful texture and the sunbeams just cap it all off!
My thanks again and now over to Brian.
The photography IHC allows no editing of the photograph at all - except for straightening and cropping. The aim of this IHC is to learn about your camera and it's possibilities and develop your understanding of photography.
The competition is open to everyone and any make of camera may be used.
Your entry must be taken after the announcement of the topic. No stock photographs. Only one entry - you can ask for opinions in the discussion thread before you submit.
Entries must be submitted by 8.00pm (the following) Sunday.
You are expected to comment with CC's on as many others in the gallery thread as you can. There is a separate Discussion thread which enables questions and comments to be made without confusing the registration thread.
A copy of your photograph should be entered in your gallery, in the registration thread with it's link and Mine's in.
The winner posts the next theme and is responsible for declaring the end date and time of the competition and choosing a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. That person should also change the title of the IHC from Current to Closed

Yesterday I suddenly found I could not transfer photos to the IHC competitions. The only way I can do is to put in the Gallery then copy it over which really is a pain.
This is how the screen now looks you will see the Image URL box at the end has dissapeared. without this I cannot get to my photos to transfer them.
Help Please. Thanks Pam

Hi guys - given that we are entering the holiday period, I wonder how everyone feels about extending this challenge into the new year? - effectively a month - we all have commitments at this time of year and this might help many have a chance to enter than may otherwise be the case.
Let me know - I will revisit this thread later and use it to set the challenge with whatever closing date is preferred by the majority of us.
So Dec 22nd or Jan 5th?
