  • A lot depends on how much you want to spend. If you don't mind a mostly automatic camera for under $200, then I'd strongly recommend an Elph 330 HS. It has great IQ and performs well through ISO ...
  • Replied in Just flare?
    That's exactly what happens with my SX700. The first time it happened I thought something was terribly wrong with it, but then realized that it was because I was shooting directly into the sun. It ...
  • It's great in low light. Pics are definitely good through ISO 1600 and certainly usable at ISO 3200. With good NR software you can make very nice shots from ISO 6400. Right now the G16 is my ...
  • I find it interesting that Panasonic has chosen to go the opposite direction with their upcoming 30x camera, the ZS50, and reduced the mp count to 12.1 instead of going higher like Canon chose to ...
  • I have both. I like how easily the 330 fits in a pocket, but I actually like the bigger size of the SX700, and it's significantly bigger. It won't fit in a case made for a 330. As far as image ...
  • I thought you were referring to the Panasonic zs50 in particular, since that was the camera mentioned. They're available for pre-order on Amazon right now. Neither the S120 nor the SX280 has a ...
  • They're not available yet...at least not here. It does look interesting though. Andy
  • Very nice, Murry! Andy
  • The Coolpix looks noticeably sharper and with less distortion, as you pointed out. It was less noisy, although it was shot at a lower ISO, I believe. Even so, I'm surprised that the G1-X II had ...
  • There is more noise in the G1X II shot at ISO 400 than I would have expected, and the sharpness is less than what I would've hoped for. Thanks for the info and for providing the pics to compare. Andy
  • Except that the extra 40mm of the G15/16's lens is very useful. My big hands also feel more comfortable using the G16 vs. the small size of the G7X. Andy
  • Nice! Quite a few G-series cameras there. I don't have too many old cameras (not digital--I've got waaay too many classic film cameras though!), but I do have the G7, G11, and a well-used A710. ...
  • What didn't you like about the G1-X II? Andy
  • LOL! You're not torturing me at all and you're making good points. I'm still a bit at odds with this camera and what I think about its image quality, so any shots from it are worth looking at for me. ...
  • When I had a G15 I also had an S100. The G15 covered all of the bases that the S100 did and more, so I sold the S100. Andy
  • Since these are "sample shots" I figured the last shot was shown for the sake of demonstrating the amount of detail the SX700 can capture, especially at ISO 800. It was actually a helpful picture ...
  • Replied in New SX600
    Those look really good Brian! Did you use your same settings as on the 330? What do you think of it so far? Andy
  • The OP's photo looks really nice actually, but to be honest, I had a very similar reaction to the first shots from my SX700 as he did (although I did not think my iPhone could do any better). When ...
  • Replied in New SX600
    Congrats, Brian! I'm excited to see what you'll do with your new camera. If anyone can get the most out of it, it's you. The low-light performance may not be as bad as it sounds; I've read about ...
  • I don't think that's an offensive statement at all; it's fact, as you stated. The other fact though is that the LX100 costs more than twice as much as a brand new G16 (a couple of sellers on eBay ...
