In reply to:

Jonathan F/2: Where is the Coolpix A replacement? Why is Nikon is still playing with small sensor cameras?

What about the performance difference between 1/1.7" and 1"?
I really want to replace my aged Canon Powershot g11, and am looking for something that I can carry with me in my (large) purse, and that is decent in low light.
The G11 is unusable at anything over ISO 400.

mrsfixit: I was there a couple of weeks ago, and boy, my shots of Citi Field don't look anything like yours! lol
Super shot, I love it! :-)

Darn right, let's go Mets!
Some day, when I finally get a decent camera and upgrade from my crappy P&S- I may ask you how you took that incredible shot. The DR is just unbelievable.
In the meantime, please keep taking shots like that and sharing them because I love looking at them.
You inspire me! :-)

I LOVE this picture!!!
Nighthawks at the Diner is my favorite painting, from my favorite artist- Edward Hopper.
You have done that painting justice, and I think Hopper himself would approve. :-)
Great job!

In reply to:

mrsfixit: Tempting, but I wouldn't spend a grand on this. It's still a (relatively) small sensor compact.
$500-600, maybe, but no more. It's overpriced.
I'd go for a mirrorless instead. Bigger sensor, better IQ, more DR, more versatile.
So, I guess that means I'm still looking for something to replace my aged Canon G11, but this ain't it...

"when you bought the G11 you got jipped that couldnt do ISO 640 even"

Tell me something I *don't* know... lol
I bought the G11 when it first came out. It was ok for what it was. But you're right- anything over ISO 400 is not very good.
Hence the reason I'm looking to step up to something better, with a bigger sensor... it's time...

On photo Inside a Maple tree in the 2015 - Seasons of Spring or Autumn. challenge (5 comments in total)

I love this shot!
It's got an ethereal, almost magical quality to it. I would almost expect to see fairies flitting about amongst the branches and Puck peering out from amidst the leaves.
Good job. Well deserved win! :-)

Good grief- that is the ugliest camera I have ever seen. :-[
When I look at it- the words "Fisher-Price" come to mind...

On article Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor (757 comments in total)
In reply to:

burnin: All you need to know about this camera is that the case has a cut-out solely so the Leica label can be seen.

Un-freaking-believable.

Of course.
Why am I not surprised.
This is not a "tool" for photography- this is status symbol.
This is the Rolex watch of the photography world.
What does a Rolex do that a Timex or Casio can't? Nothing.
What can this camera do that a camera 1/4 the price can't do?
Nothing.
It's simply an expensive bauble that screams "look at me" for those with more money than brains, who like to lord that fact over the rest of us peasants.
