The Boston Museum of Science had a traveling show with a diorama like this about elephants, mastodons, and mammoths. Did the exhibit travel to Seattle and this is where you got this shot? Hah, LOL

curtmill22: I really enjoy my RX100 but the thought of having a built in neutral density filter with the LX3 makes me want to have two pocket cameras. LOL. Curt on Cape Cod

Oops, I have the LX3. I am lusting for the LX7 with its built in ND filter.

Cy Cheze: Here's a pitch for the underdog LX7:

The control ring is limited to aperture selection, but it has dedicated wheels for shutter and ND filter. Each ratchets precisely. The RX100 ring lurches about. The LX7 offers time lapse, which the others do not. Its aperture is fastest across the full zoom range. One can suppress digital zoom in video, which one cannot with the Sony. Plus, it is intermitently offered at a $299 price, which is hard to beat. Can the RX100 be worth more than twice that? It too will sell for less when the RX200 (or the Samsung KX100!) draw nigh. But people who elect to spend more money, or get a tatoo, find ingenious ways to be cheerful they did.

You might be right but I just could not help myself. There it was and I had to have it. I have "mostly" concentrated on MFT for the last couple of years and mostly Panny for my compacts (LX3 etc which I loved). But there you go! The RX100 is such an easy choice when I want to slip a camera into my pocket in the evening. The recent office xmas party is a good example. I got great photos. But it is a difficult camera to love as it is fiddly and a lot of menu button presses to get what I want. But oh those pictures. Curt on Cape Cod

John Usa: This new version does open a CR2 file taken with my T4i with its included Adobe Raw 7.1.
It then can save it only to a DNG file format.

What Conchita is saying (if I dare speak forConchita) is to open in raw, make changes or not and then have the raw file open in elements editor and then you can save in any format available to Elements. At least that is how it worked in Elements 10 and all the ones before 10. Curt on Cape Cod
