  • 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, ...
  • Yeah, that's pretty much standard warranty repair bunkum that applies to almost any product you buy (I used to do warranty admin on motor cars). They're only obliged to provide you with a working ...
  • There is a little movement, but no droop that I can see, it looks dead straight when put onto a flat surface. It has a little creep too, but about the same as before. To be honest, things like that ...
  • Yeah, at least mine was quicker. Indeed so. This is my sole camera, so I'm looking to use this for all my photo needs. I'm not happy that it will fulfil that further than the near future. Yeah, my ...
  • It was turned around in just a few days, and arrived back today. Message on the sheet was that a new lens has been fitted. However, it has left me with some mixed feelings now. Of course I am ...
  • Yeah, ta, hadn't spotted that, although it's not an issue for this test, I never saw the problem affecting close-ups.
  • Yes, you could be right there, I did say 'difficult to judge', although I'm sure that it's visible in that shot, now that I've spotted the phenomenon, I seem to be quite sensitive to it now. Yeah, ...
  • Nice colours and views there. However, I did notice that the wide angle shot (the only one you have here that's under 20mm) in the woods has the same blurred 25% on the left that mine have been ...
  • Yeah, it's there in both, although it appears to be opposite sides depending, which I suspect might be down to the in camera processing/lens corrections on the JPEG images. Anyway, I'm sending it ...
