  • Nikon N1 system. I like the cameras but not completely satisfied with the image quality, especially with what can be had with the Sony 1" sensor.

    I like the growing N1 lens system. The lenses are...

  • I agree but these are for people who's phone cam can't zoom like this camera (which is any phone cam). These people won't spring for a nicer camera. Since these things sell, manufacturers with...

  • Good example. I too hear the blather about more MP being better and I agree to some extent but I often don't see the advantage. Higher MP does show more fine detail when downsized to a camera of a ...
  • I need to get down to Cinci and check out the current library. I've never seen a large library. All of the branches around here small and somewhat disappointing in collection. When I look at my...

  • 15 or 16" on the long side is about as much as I go with with 10mp and get a crisp looking print. Back in the 35mm film days I was rarely happy with prints wider than 12". It probably had to do ...
  • These are very lovely shots and show how you have a good understanding of subject and camera. These are downsized from the camera's full resolution to under 2MP size and will not show the true ...
  • I've yet seen any high pixel count small sensor device that does well in available light. All I ever see is the hazy washed vale of too much effort to hide the noise from these tiny sensors. I ...
  • It seems Nikon is pushing forth with the megapixel race in the N1 system. To me, it seems a marketing move to get the V3 in the same pixel league of other brands and even SLRs. While I'm not a big ...
  • Decent image quality from this camera. Those super zoom cameras with the small sensors generate images that look like your shooting through a murky veil. This camera has contrast and clarity. I...

  • Created discussions Found some old 35mm film
    Yes, I know it is a digital site and I haven't shot a single frame of film in years, but... I found a pack of new unopened 35mm ISO 200 color neg film (non pro) in the fridge and I'd like to run it ...

  • The first image is clearly in focus (sharpness of the eye) but the halo shows a definite optical aberration. It seems poor even for this type of lens. I'd be sending this thing back pronto. I ...
  • This makes for a really nice travel camera. It makes fine pictures and the lens is fast and sensor low noise for when the available light is weak.

    I do have one concern. The shots using the long...

  • No, just advertizing. Note the price said "starting at". The house shown is probably 2x that price.

  • So, I see this when I'm having money issues (sudden big bill to pay) and I can't afford it now. Some shots I've seen with it look good. Would make a great lens for vacation shots and vids aside ...
  • The large open structures look very modern for their age. Note that he uses large format cameras which should have the digital geeks up in arms.

  • I snagged an Elph 115 for $40 to be used mainly for video. I have always been critical of the audio quality of digital cameras for years. They could usually shoot good video, but left audio as an ...
