More on the Fujifilm F505

I have had the F505 for a couple of weeks now. Here are some pros and cons:

Pros:

1) Panorama setting is really really cool.
2) The camera can capture 3 continuous shots in one shutter click for HDR shots. The shots are set to under exposure, normal exposure, and over exposure. The amount can be set at 1/3, 2/3, or 1 stop. Way cool.
3) Macro function and the closeup ability of this camera is outstanding.

Cons:

1) Mode button is easily moved by accident
2) Buttons are tiny
3) Barrel distortion on full zoom
4) Slow image storage - you have to wait on the camera after 2 shots
5) Oversaturated colors - particularly the reds
6) Overall image quality
7) High ISO images are quite soft

There are still functions I have not used. I am still finding new ways to use this camera. In spite of the flaws, it is well worth the $150 paid.
