RikMaxSpeed: I use an Olympus PEN with the "thirds grid" enabled when shooting - however Olympus have taken a slightly odd decision of narrowing the central bands, the lines are not equally spaced and the cross-points are somewhat closer to the centre of the frame - a good idea? what do you think?

I guess they did not align the grid with the rule of thirds in mind, but with the golden ratio, which is a better idea anyway.

Thoughts: I would not take photos with this camera in RAW format. It is meant to be a fun camera after all.

Having detail smeared by crappy in-camera noise reduction is fun?

antoineb: Duly shot at f11 where diffraction must be a clear issue - why?

of course the test scene needs f11 for enough DOF - but surely this cannot take precedence over the need to deliver relevant results?

as it stands, these shots at f11 will suffer from diffraction BEFORE they show limits of the sensor resolution.

therefore these are cute test shots - but they're essentially useless.

These should be re-done at f5.6

Since the D800 is full-format, it should not be diffraction limited at f11

METROMODEPHOTO: OH, YEAH" I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE FROM MY AWSOME 7D APS SENSOR TO A FULL SIZE SENSOR SOME DAY AND END THE GET THE LATEST AND THE NEWEST "RAT-RACE" SOME DAY BUT, I AM WELL DISAPPOINTED WITH THE RIDICULOUS "ONE" MORE MP 21MP 5D-2 TO A 22MP 5D-3 UPGRADE. YES,IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE SINCE NIKON OFFERED 36MP WITH THE NICE OPTION OF GOING DOWN TO 22MP FOR EXTRA FINE DETAIL AND SOME DAY IF YOU LIKE TO BLOW UP LARGE PHOTOS AND GET THE EXTRA DETAILS WELL ITS ALL THERE AND READILY AVAILABLE. ITS JUST LIKE HAVING AN SLR THAT SHOOTS HD VIDEO.I DO NOT DO VIDEO YET BUT AS I SAID BEFORE, IT IS NICE TO HAVE THE OPTION TO. "YES, OPTIONS ARE GOOD.

The key on the left side of your keyboard, above the shift key, is called caps-lock. Please press it again to turn it off.

voz: Raw would have been nice...

yes, raw is for those who actually can get it right in the camera, but don't like the crappy processing the cameras do and want to enhance the image quality even further. Or for those who want to do black and white conversions with channel mixing, without the limits that 8-bit jpegs impose on you.

NowHearThis: The paragraphs above say *optical stabilization* but the spec list says sensor shift... which is it DPR?

Well, sensor shift _is_ a kind of optical stabilisation...

Bomple: Hi, there's a very annoying restriction in the s95 which limits the use of raw to the P/A/S/M modes. Unfortunately this wasn't mentioned in the review of the s95.

Does anyone know if this restriction is still present in the s100?

I downloaded the manual of the s100 and the restriction is still there.
That means no raw in full auto or scene modes.

I think this should have been mentioned somewhere in the review, as this is a major flaw of the camera and severely limits the use of raw.
