I have taken photos of the moon with my Samsung camera and I have remembered the settings: EV in -1.7 to -2, ISO low, 100. Here is one sample photo of a nearly full moon taken with the Fujifilm superzoom camera:

I have familiarized myself with my Samsung camera and that was quick. But the hs25exr finepix camera is so much more complicated! Right now, my finepix cam is showing grid lines but I am asking myself again and again, How do you turn on and off the display of grid lines in the viewing screen when composing a photo? Will post the answer later!
- Turn on the camera
- Press the DISP/BACK button
- Select best framing from [ON, OFF, Best framing, HD FRAMING, HISTOGRAM]
Funny but I cannot find the electronic horizon level indicator in my hs25exr camera, yet this feature is over-hyped in camera publications! Ah ok, I think it is in the rectangular ruler strip with movable white band and yellow square block indicator.But a check in the manual tells me that this is the exposure level! Where is the camera's electronic level indicator? Based on Fujifilm.EU page page on the HS25EXR camera, here is what the electronic level guide is supposed to be doing!
I just bought a new Fujifilm camera although I already have a Nikon D5100 and Samsung WB150F cameras. The compelling reasons are
- 30x zoom for travel and nature photography (birds, landscapes)
- Much cheaper, less than 15,000 pesos than a 50X zoom camera by Canon at <= 26,000 pesos!
- Much smaller than the Nikon dslr
- Manual controls with S,A, M settings
- convenient 360 degree panoramic mode
- tiltable lcd viewing screen
- electronic view finder
- flash shoe!
