Got my new T1!
Feb 4, 2004

Took a few pics and here is my initial impressions.

1) Its SMALL!

2) Its FAST - startup time about a sec, pic to pic time about a sec. Focus time in less than a sec. Speed is comprable to the F7x7, if not faster!

3) Its focus is ACCURATE! Almost no OOF images - a problem I had with the P5 and the P10.
4) macro is excellent.

5) LCD is 100% visable in DIRECT sunlight - It uses that trans-relective technology that PDAs use. You can even turn off the backlight indoors and still see the image clearly.


1) default sharpening is over-sharpened (leading to very noisy images). I set image to low and sharpen in PS with much better results. With this method, noise is comprable, to that of the P series.
2) Flash is weak, but will work fine for most snapshots.
3) You will get red-eye in with the flash.

Here is a sample I took: its full sized, low sharpening, and sharpened in PS with the flash. The flash illuminates the subject fine, there is noticable dropoff in the background, but its very good compared to the P series.

For the full sized image:

Definately a keeper for me! Questions? Comments? Requests?

I'll be happy to help.
