Andy Hewitt's recent activity

  • It does seem to be a bit hit and miss, I've found that some images rotate fine, while others do not. I've just checked some of the photos EXIF data, and they're all correctly identified as ...
  • We went for a little break doing some sight seeing around London last week. This was one of my primary reasons for selling up the bridge camera a few weeks ago, and changing to the TZ60 (bung it ...
  • Exactly the same as myself Dave, I have only been a 'hobbyist' too. Likewise, can only conclude based on what I see. And from that, I try to make that clear that whatever I comment on is based only ...
  • Yes, seeing the same here, it does look like what I'd call a bit of 'softness' at the long end. FWIW, I think this just shows how darned good the TZ60 is. I've seen shots like the ones from the ...
  • Blimey, I nearly responded to your reply to my article, but changed my mind thinking I was being a bit harsh on you, but I see now that my response would have been somewhat mild compared to this ...
  • I've only just bought a TZ60, and have been interested in these too, although I couldn't afford the extra for the TZ70 anyway, but seeing all of these shows that the TZ60 is still a good choice, ...
  • Hi Jon, Yes, I remember that, and have fond memories of using the old E-1. I did indeed sell it, and in fact all of my DSLR kit altogether. I downsized to Bridge, first a Fuji HS50, then an X-S1. ...
  • Thank you David. I was so close to buying an FZ200 when I bought the Fuji HS50, but the manual zoom won over at the time. I intend to experiment some more, probably using Raw+JPEG for a while, just ...
  • Cheers Chris, yes that pretty much a standard way for me for the last few years, where possible - the TZ60 doesn't seem to have any settings for noise or sharpening, so for full control I intend ...
  • I downloaded a few Raws and JPEGs for testing, and feel quite happy with its capability. I now have the TZ60, and it's pretty good to handle. Of course much smaller than I'm used to, although I ...
  • Thank you, I will too, to some degree, although I miss nothing more than my old Olympus E-1 - the images from those are almost legendary.
  • Created discussions Back to the Panasonic fold...
    Hello to all, After a few years of using DSLRs, and then a couple of recent Fuji Bridge cameras (HS50 and X-S1), I'm back using a Panasonic compact. I used to won an FZ7 a few years ago, which ...
  • Replied in Currencies
    One of the most annoying things in the UK is that we all too often get stitched up on prices too. Many companies charge a different price over here than in the US, even when taking into account ...
  • Well, as you point out, a mirrorless, despite the (on paper) superior sensor etc, goes back to the big bag of kit, and decisions on what lenses to take, and carry around at any time. And, FWIW, ...
  • Yes, there is no doubt I will miss the X-S1, it's up there in my favourites selection for sure. I must admit that for a long time it never occurred to me that migrating *from* larger cameras was a ...
  • Created discussions A hard decision, but...
    One thing that has been clear to me over the last few years, is that my photography hobby has evolved and changed dramatically. Various changes in circumstances (some quite catastrophic) gave me ...
  • Thanks KJ, it was a pretty nice winters day there, warmer than normal, but still stormy, as you can see. The dog is good fun. We've only had him about 6 months, and now is a year old. It's a Jack ...
  • We got down to the beach at the weekend, for once picking a day with the tide out! Missus handled the dog, while I handled the X-S1. All shot using Raw L-size, DR100, ISO auto-400. PP'd in ...
  • Cheers, a nice set there. It's often hard to get good pictures on a grey rainy day, but they're all good. Like the misty woods best.
  • Quite limited here, and for each of us it can only be valid for cameras we've owned or used. For me, my list of small sensor cameras is short, I've owned just as many DSLRs. However, Olympus C960Z, ...
