    testing out my OH's new Fuji HS30 EXR bridge camera

    just a quick shot put camera on tripod outside last night, set it to manual and switched on the digital zoom to give focal length of a ridiculous 1440mm!

    shot in jpeg too

    not bad for a camera that cost £120 !
    prob needs some colour adjustment and whatnot but digital zoom doesnt work in RAW so just wanted to see how close this little bridge shoots without spending more than a minute setting up.

    Very good results from that little camera.As you say it needs some white balance work.Could just do a black and white edit on it.

    Much better. Plenty of derail in that. I would struggle to get that detail with my 600 f4 on either full frame or crop bodies.

    Nice one Dean, I have never done any sort of Astro Photography, believing you need some fancy and expensive scope for even a simple image. You have blown that theory out of the air with this image.

    Excellent, Dean, lots of detail and good contrast.
    You'll have to try a half-moon next to see detail around craters and better contrast. I usually take many images and select the best because even with the same settings,
    the "seeing" conditions (atmospheric distortion) varies considerably.

    That's a really nice shot for not a lot of outlay.

    Cracking shot. The detail at the terminator is wonderful. Shows that you don't need expensive equipment to produce great photos.

    its a great little ( or not so little ) Bridge camera . Fuji have an outstanding range and this camera normally is around £200 but picked up on ebay auction.
    anyone looking at going from a compact to a bridge i would def recommend the fuji range
