    Thumbs up All I can say is WOW.

    Man, those are some nice shots. I can only hope one day I can shoot like that...really nice P.

    If I may ask, was there tremendous amounts of USM applied? Because your shots are BY FAR some of the cleanest shots I've seen with an S6000, especially the duck shot, lots of very nice detail in that one. Mind if I ask what in-camera sharpening setting you used? Or if you shot RAW?

    Thanks P.

    Thanks Brian,
    I really don't do a whole lot with any of the PP. The USM was at 25% with a radius of 1 I believe. I set the H/S at 10% 5% respectively, and the curves are a slight S across the grid, just a couple points each way. Once in a while I will tweek levels if need be and use Neat Image if it's a high ISO shot.
    These are by far the cleanest shots I have gotten out of the camera and I believe 2 things really helped me out.

    1. I shot RAW
    2. Hoya circular polarizer filter

    A world of difference from the shots I took on my trip to the gulf coast where I had no filter and shot in .jpg

    oh btw, I keep the camera sharpening set to soft.

    If I had to guess I'd saw RAW is the bigger of the two factors. I'll try and get some shots up soon. Maybe even a JPG and RAW of the same thing.

    My little mutt runs like her life depends on it; she's like a mini greyhound, so I'm surprised I even got her in the frame since she zigzags her path when she runs toward you.

    Great camera: S6000fd/S6500fd

    Having used it a couple of times myself, I really like S6000fd/S6500fd. For indoors, it is the next best thing from DSLR; and this is the reason I'm sold on it.
    I will be checking this thread regularly.

    Yeah, I have to say between i-Flash and Face detection it takes great indoor shots. I am just amazed at the ability of the flash to fill a room or light a subject without killing everything else. Plus the whole Natural Light and w/flash is very cool.

    Haven't had much of a chance to get outdoors yet as the days are too short.
