  • Yes indeed.  My brain just won't recognize Nikon's existence.
  • I have found that in full sun a -2/3 EV is required when anything near white can be blown out. If not too bright or contrasty subjects -1/3 is usually sufficient. I prefer a very slight overcast ...
  • Considering these are at full zoom, most at high ISO, presumed to be hand held and again presume SOTC they aren't bad.  What I found is that full zoom produces generally mottled, grainy photos ...
  • Sushi, for under $200. I got an ASUS RT-AC66R or U (802.11AC) 3 antenna router. I had a Linksys AC1600 (EA6400) and had to frequently reboot with poor coverage. The ASUS has been 100% but only had ...
  • Replied in SX60 zoom
    It had to happen.  The 50s outgun us 60s 100 to 1.  ;-)
  • Replied in SX60 zoom
    Good point.  The smaller the sample the sharper and smoother the appearance.  These are indeed very small but the OP gets to choose.  :-|
  • Replied in SX60 zoom
    Just one more questune.  Are these RAW images and what post processing do you use?  Well 2 questions actually.
  • Replied in SX60 zoom
    Thanks much.  My serial # is 912050002489 so it must be a latter build.  Perhaps I'm  just expecting too much and need a steadier hand and better weather.
  • Replied in SX60 zoom
    Anitoli, would you please post your serial #?  My new SX60 is somewhat disappointing shooting handheld and zoomed in to 247mm.  Not near the results you show.  Even wider shots are just barely up ...
  • I built my mini work station as it had to fit into a mini corner.  My screen wallpaper is a photo of a fish-boat in fog.  I prefer a subdued background so the icons show up.  My screen saver is ...
  • You just beat me to it George.  I too use "Snipping Tool" for saving, printing or e-mailing a screen shot.  It's very adjustable to include any size or shape.  I will give the 'alt-print screen' a ...
  • And I was just expecting a TEXAN.  Murry you just don't look the part.  Very nice photos, well composed finely executed as usual.  Hope more to come.
  • Perhaps it's just my old eyes but I prefer the SX50 image.  I basically feel that too much emphasis is placed on IQ when most people are only capable of resolving so much detail.   Personally my ...
  • Well, some do like to bitch even if they never owned the camera or even touched it. It's a P&S, small sensor, ultra zoommer !!! It's an all in one package that offers a lot of versatility with...

  • Thanks Andrew for the detailed report on the SX60.  Only got through part #1 but I agree with your findings.  This camera seems to be as good as it can be for a tiny sensor, ultra zoomer that ...
  • Replied in Acronis
    I've used the 2015 Acronis TI for several months and although initially it looked to be a disaster it settled out once getting familiar with all the changes.  I back up manually twice monthly with ...
  • Replied in Another SX60
    I believe the first one was at 247mm and that can be a long shot.  Hard to get a sharp hand held shot zoomed to max optical but here there is a fair bit of mottling.
  • Yes indeed. You must get that SX60 now that you have been exposed. I do believe that if one can afford this camera AND travel, by all means go for it. :-D The SX40 still can do backup duty and ...
  • Agreed, the SX60 is a better camera than the SX40 in most every way.  How much better in IQ is debatable and given the price is it worth $500.   At full out zoom there is a slight mottling if ...
  • Good question.  Actually I tried to cancel the post but too late.  There really should be a longer time period for having "second thoughts" on posts.
