Are we mad or what?
Aug 18, 2014

I needed some pictures of my RX10 with the Tele-converter today so I borrowed my wife's DSC-HX9V, turned it on and fired off three shots with auto settings. I was absolutely blown away.

The images are here...

Check out the images - just click on the links in Internet Explorer and when each download is complete, click once on the image, which will zoom it out to 100%.

Now think really carefully. When was the last time you printed an image bigger than the 100% zoom makes these? When was the last time you viewed an image on anything good enough to question the sharpness and clarity of these images at 100%.

That's a pocket-sized point-and-shoot with 16X zoom and it doesn't know how to take bad pictures. I think I paid about £220 for it when I bought it for Pat's Christmas present. I'm currently out about £1200 for my RX10.

Am I mad, or what?
