Hi everyone . Recently bought S5IS primarily because of the CHDK builds which definnetly increase the power of your camera. Here are a few of my first attemps with CHDK

Nice, although they look a little out of focus.

Did you use manual focus or autofocus?

Agree with Hacki, the focus is ever so slightly out... Always use manual focus and keep checking for sharpness every so ofter be zooming in on a flash reflection/edge when in play back mode.  Cool drops though, is the colour natural?  Also appears to be alot of noise, maybe work on the ISO being low as possible too.

Good job!

Thanks for your suggestions .Yes I did use auto focus .Was excited with the results that couldn't resist sharing them with you all. the settings I used were 1/10000,F8.0, ISO200,flash at 1/3rd power , macro mode.

Yup, always use manual focus if your camera can do it... Macro will get the close focus, but it may focus on the water infront or behind.  Use a "floater" object to set focus (something with high contract to water and a sharp edge to help focus) where the drops will land, and then remove it and drip away!!

images little noisy...
always keep ISO at 80/100....instead ISO use extra light source.......
reduce shutter speed for better light.........
