  • When the detail suddenly goes missing at 100% on the display, it will not bet there either on a 33x23 inch print - You see the excessive sharpening even at  a 'normal' viewing distance of the large ...
  • The original question is more valid now than it was in 2011. P&S cameras and their BSI CMOS sensors improved since then. Focusing has become quicker and more reliable, particularly when zooming. ...
  • Your comment is extremely helpful. I am saving it in my 'Tiritiri Movies' folder together with the videos that have caused this panic. Henry
  • Created discussion thread Stylus 800 - Reminiscing
    While changing rooms around to forestall any health concerns regarding recuperation after an operation yet to take place, I discovered I had the charger for the 2005 vintage Stylus 800 3x zoom ...
  • Sandra is worried that for the very situation you outline, my challenge may cost  money. Thanks for your contribution. Henry
  • Thank you. I consider it possible that it was the sound in my bellbird video that was edited, then dubbed into the music video. The edit might be considered an original work of art. I cannot prove ...
  • The publishers making the claim are German. Who knows what their law says (without employing a German lawyer). As I said I cannot view the new claim at this point. It is possible that currently a ...
  • Just checked - the links work for me. Glad they work for you now. Henry
  • Created discussion thread Copy Right Claims Against Me
    Within the last two months, a copyright claim was put against my 2007 bellbird video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxPid7VxTA4 The picture was taken on August 17, 2007 - like the video. Then ...
  • Exactly - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW08khpvbTE I used the (Olympus) SH-2 for the (silent) time lapse clips, and the SH-1 for real-time clips with sound. I speeded up the sound for dubbing ...
  • Good stuff! Henry
  • Some long zoom compact models of any brand may suck in dust when the lens is extended, while other long zoom models of the same brand do not. As to the Nikon DL 24-500, time will tell. Getting the ...
  • Not bad at all at all. Henry
  • Holiday pics like the Greek one benefit from color. I did not watch that black and white 1940 style snap for more than 2 seconds. Henry
  • Here is a selection advertised by Photo Warehouse - http://www.photowarehouse.co.nz/shop/shop-by-product/digital-cameras/point-and-shoot/?start=60 I would avoid TradeMe. Cameras offered that I have ...
  • I did that once to a NZ$ 2000.- radio receiver-transmitter, and the professionals could not fix it. A friend bought it off me for NZ$ 100.-. He spent NZ$ 4000.- of his time (he is a qualified ...
  • Replied in SH-2 - Blooms
    It is a pleasure! Thanks for looking. Henry
  • Replied in SH-2 - Blooms
    Thank you! Your compliment is most appreciated. Henry
  • This only applies if you compare 8x10 inch prints from otherwise near-identical cameras, as discussed elsewhere in this thread. Some contributors confuse resolution with pixel count. My current ...
  • I use 16 MB travel compact zooms, and they generally do sharpening that causes black haloes several pixels wide. When I was doing A3 size prints from 4 MB originals, I learnt to use ...
