    That's right. For the faulty clip I could not delete it afterwards, so I needed to reformat the card via the format menu.

    Maybe it was a problem with deleting so many times without reformatting. I...

    Very beautiful photo! I think I'll leave my camera in burst mode during my next walk.

    And yes, I've been very happy about the battery life so far.

    After thinking about it some more, I decided to go back to "standard" mode. I know that in "vivid" mode the colors stand out more. But I've been feeling a bit uncomfortable about the results - like...

    I did exactly 1 test of this (because it doesn't seem like a feature I would really use). It didn't seem to noticeably increase the size of the file.
