  • I didn't think the TZ60 was a big improvement over my TZ8 (arguably the best they made). But when I compared my Nex 3N with the TZ8, the difference was negligeable. In normal daylight, you will ...
  • Pffff A6000 fast focus? It can't even get correct focus on a person at a party!

  • Looks very promising. Much better layout than the Sony A6000: bigger screen, dedicated exp. compensation dial, integrated flash... More of a photographers camera. Now if only it would focus! The...

  • If I use 900mm zoom I have to think to switch to SR zoom on the mode dial. Why not have just made this kick in automatically? Or put a multiframe switch somewhere?
  • Very interesting, thank you! Does this mean I don't need a full frame camera to be able to expose large prints in galleries?
  • Maybe what I'm looking for is a more limited zoom, with good IQ. Something like the LF1. Slightly bigger sensor, 24-200 or 300mm lens, 12MP ---> perfect! :-)
  • Thank you for your help. What I wanted to express was the difficulty of choosing between all the different modes that basically do the same thing: help counter camera shake. I was also expressing ...
  • OK, here is some additional feedback. Compared to my old Lumix TZ8, image quality is about the same, maybe a little less detail, more smudging of fine texture (@80 iso!). Also tried some telephoto ...
  • Discovered the TZ71 test today too. Comparing their testscene at 80 and 400 iso with those of my TZ8, it is clear that the TZ71 does pretty poorly. Noise not much better, in fact a lot of that ...
  • I'm sure you'll be quite happy with the ZR850. It doesn't seem to have too much CA, but I haven't had a lot of sun yet to really check. If you keep the iso low, you can get very sharp pictures. I ...
  • My settings are usually P and 80 iso and -1/3 exposure. When shooting at double the optical focal (900mm) I use the SR position on the dial (thanks Eric O). This takes a zillion pictures and ...
  • I will wade into this thread, carefully as the pope did on the Paris killings. The ZR850 which I imported as a replacement to my much appreciated lumix TZ8, thanks to the Casio forum, is a strange ...
  • Tom, thank you for your detailed answer. Very encouraging news! I would agree that battery ratings don't mean much, but I often have the reverse result, sometimes only managing to squeeze out 40 ...
  • Replied in g1x mark 2
    Hi Tom, The G1XII seriously interests me because of its larger size, zoom range and sensor size. I'm not worried about the IQ as much as reliability of focus in different situations. I had the G7X, ...
  • I tried the Multi Frame NR set to 6400 iso max. This resulted in severe banding in the dark areas (left). The normal shot at 1600 iso doesn't show any banding and has better Dynamic Range. It is ...
  • Good for you! Having tested both the RX100I and III against the G7X (see my 3 threads), I reluctantly decided to go for the Sony RX100III. Why reluctantly? Because the Canon is much nicer to use. W ...
  • Hi Dale, my feeling is you are being a liitle bit too academic. While absolutely correct, your system does not reflect real life shooting. I think the cameras shuold be left to fend for ...
  • Just wait till DPR tests the dynamic range enhancers. I switched on DR correction and Shadow correction: the concerned areas turned to a complete mush.
    What probably happens is the iso is pushed...

  • Thank you, I will definitely have a look at your XZ10 gallery because it intrigues me. I am not a large sensor fetishist or fundamentalist, I have seen that small sensors, well implemented, can do ...
  • For casual looking, most good P&S would be good enough. I sometimes need to print pictures really large and then I want the detail to be there. That surprises me a little. But anyway, I think the ...
