i bought a fujifilm s700 the other day, here are some test pictures.

I plan on using it to video the hunts this season, but does anyone know a site that doesn't compress files so the resolution stays good and clear? the videos are good on my computer, but i guess i need to put one on photobucket to know if they keep some quality.

Seems like a good reliable affordable camera at 7.1egapixels and 10x zoom.
If you are going to shoot video make sure you have lot of memory and check out to see if the camera can shoot video at high res and be also be able to zoom in also..640x480 res is ok res and won't be really clear anyways compressed or not..pay attention to the lighting conditions and adjust for exposure in low light early hunting conditions. Take a practic evideo shoot at that time and you will know what I mean.
If you set the camera at continuous shooting mode you will get frame by frame clearer pics along with the image stabilization rather than going video

IN regards to a few test shots it appears to like the outdoors and not like the indoors too much.
You might want to not shoot at the AE auto mode but rather go set up a Program mode with the setting set at centre focus and set the color to vivid and also set the sharpness to hard and if you have a contrast set that also to hard..For indoor shooting watch the histogram and maybe set the exposure to say-.3-5 to get away from the soft light pic look.

Look out for purple fringing at higher zoom-focal lengths but you can remove some with photoshop

For wildlife get as close as possible as it only zooms out to 350mm

Take more pics and practice with the settings

thanks. I did a test video and it shot very well. i bought 4 gigs of memeory so i can shoot over an hour of video at hi res, 2 hours at low res. i will probably buy more memeory before duck season though. i found a dragonfly flying around my yard so i focused on it for a duck like simulation, it came out good. i set the video at high res.

as for pictures, i'm still experimenting on shutter speed and apature setting. the dog one came out good i think, especially for indoors.

You have to get up early and run the video test in real like hunting conditions as the video has no zoom or settings or flash lightings..it is going to be tough to shoot the video unless you are on an afternoon hunt

i do have zoom, i will check how it does on low light this weekend. i can always carry a flashlight until shooting light, then there should be enough light to film.

I stand to be corrected this Fuji is one of the few camera with the zoom feature for movie mode.

GO FOR IT!!!!! :hammer: :hammer: :thumbsup:

i got 4 megs of memory for it the other day for 25 bucks (2 2mb sd cards) and i can shoot over an hour of video on high quality on it, on low i can shoot over 2 hours. i'm gonna buy more sd cards before season though so i can film the entire hunt. I'm gonna make some half hour hunting shows if i am able. Maybe I'll post them on here so i can get some member feedback.
