I have just installed Fuji update 3.1 B for HS-V2.
First impressions (still subjective) - significantly improved picture quality at low ISO (I've tested at 100). After High speed conversion it stands PS USM of 500/0.4/0 very well with artifacts compared with PS ACR 2.4 conversion.
It performs well even with Very High Quality conversion at ISO 100.
Nothing to say it still converts both S & R pixels :)
Now my processor is occupied by GF Print Pro 4.0 500% picture inflating.
It takes about an hour for 12Mp 16 bit picture to be processed using Athlon 2600+ and 1.5 G Dual Chanel RAM.
Don't hesitate to try this upgrade. Highly recommended!

Re: HS-V2: 3.0 vs 3.1B
But actually here was some rumour last Ocktober or November, that the RAW conveter was not ready yet, and that was the reason why they did not ship S3 earlier. This might be the reason after all (the last 2-3 months delay, did not ship in September as they said in summer), considering the image quality the 3.0 version had (vs. ACR 2.4 non official).
Could you post some 100% crops of both (v3.1B and ACR 2.4), with best quality setting.

A couple of quick things come to mind first is you may be way to close to your subject for the camera to focus OR you are trying to take a pictures of a shiny subject, painted wall a mirror or some other subject that lacks contrast
This is an old posting but let me add my words here. The bigger the recorded pixels the better the print quality becomes small numbers will be able to record more pictures to a memory card but the quality may only be good enough for internet use.
The picture Quality on your camera is retained even when you shut the camera off. I'm including two diagrams the second one is pretty impressive and I think will make a print in the 20x24 inch range Set one
3264x2448 producing a 10x12 double the size on a Canon, Fuji or Nordica print lab processing lab will produce a print 20x24.
Hi, You no need to fix this problem. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall.Contact Fuji support this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost. Thank you !!
I have the same exact problem and I found something on their website (Fuji) that says its a firmware update that is supposed to address "improved handling of playback of images". I am about to download it. The link is right here. It gives specific set of instructions that you will want to follow carefully so as not to damage your camera, as some firmware can. -- here is the site: http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/s/finepix_s2500hd/fupd.html
try pressing the f button next to the LCD then going to the second option down -that is where you can change your ISO -and either increace your ISO when there is less light, or set your ISO on auto, and have the rest of the camera on auto too
try this photography technique called panning... panning is when your shooting a moving object you need to follow that moving object while pressing shutter speed..this technique is the technique photographers to capture moving objects...Have you seen a picture that has a blurry background and focused subject (ex. cyclist) panning is used to create this kinds of pictures...try to search in google or photo sites about Panning
I suggest that you logon to the fuji website and update the picture program offered for your camera. But any picture program on your computer may read the pics when you attach the camera and turn it on picture display. I have an s7000 and rarely use the one offered by Fuji. My olympus and canon programs also work with my fuji camera.
Best thing you can do is focus manually, using the little green dot in the bottom left hand corner of the viewfinder for assistance.
The 'lag' is due to the camera deciding the focus point, passing it to the motor in the lens, by which time the subject hs moved and so it tries to fix again by moving through the range.
Its annoying, but focusing manually, although not a solution per se, is the only option.
Melzim, another user, is exactly right. The lower-end digital cameras experience a significant shutter delay when using the camera; it's an unfortunate fact.
What you can do, outside of investing in a newer model (which do have improvements over the earlier models) is simply try to anticipate your subject's movement - or concentrate on portraiture, etc.
There is a huge value, over time, in having pictures of smiling families, standing still, believe it or not.
The A85 is simply not the camera to use to freeze action.
