I had to return two P330 cameras due to horrendous lens flare, I hope they have improved things with this new one!

When I had a look at the Panasonic LF1 I thought what a great idea to have a EVF instead of the much maligned (but useful) tunnel ones, but I was disappointed with its EVF resolution, also I found the rear controls too small. So I thought to myself what is needed is a camera like the LF1 but a bit larger and with a better EVF…. Nikon must be mind readers!
I just hope that the P7800 is as good as it looks.

If the EVF is worth looking through I'll buy one !!!!!
But that's a big if.

The big question for me is how good is the WhiteMagic screen outdoors in sunlight?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: rather than turning a phone into a camera it is more logical to turn a camera into a phone!
Then at least the camera side of things will be much better than the current range of camera phones.

For years I have thought that a camera would make a better phone rather than turning a phone into a camera, after all a digital camera already has a screen, battery and memory. So far there is no way I could consider using a phone as a P&S camera.
I have used an iphone and in bright sunlight the results are OK but in other conditions the noise is so bad I don’t see the point.
Just imagine if you could make phone calls on Canon S100!!!

I was thinking of buying the F600EXR for its HDR mode, but some reviews claim the lens is soft at the edges on the wide setting. I wonder if Fuji has solved this problem with this model?

In reply to:

Penponds: Significance of lack of viewfinder in the +40 age group...?! (long-sighted...)
My wife and I, (both in that age group) have been debating a discrete, easier to carry alternative to the 550D with a std zoom for her work purposes which last involved trips to boondocks of northern Afghanistan. Initially the S100 and SX230 HS appealed because of the GPS and the former's 24mm.

But on trying these alongside the G12 was a revelation.

The first two cameras were immediately considered by my wife to be too small for comfortable holding - yet she thought her primary concern was pocketability. The next revelation was that no viewfinder meant no dioptric adjustment, and not being able to comfortably see the LCD screen at normal distances. We haven't made the final decision yet - but it looks like a deal breaker. All the fantastic innovations and features of the S100 receding in significance compared with the discomfort and supreme inconvenience of putting on and off reading glasses...

Go on ebay and buy a Canon S70/80 and then wait until they make the perfect camera for your needs!

On First Impressions: Using the Canon PowerShot S100 article (191 comments in total)

Lens decentering seems to be common problem with quite a few cameras of late and what with the X10 white blob fault I wonder if the engineering quality is not as good as it was.
Are the manufacturers spending too much time and money on the electronics and forgetting how to actually build things, could Made in China have anything to do with it?

It will be interesting to see if the people who buy them also get an extra lens on two, or just use the one it came with on the day of purchase.

I guess some people will buy them, but it won't be me!
Would the Fuji X10 not be a better briefcase or large pocket camera?

Yes, I understand that, but the only really small lenses are the prime pancake ones, even the “small zooms” are large compared to the body, my point is that when fitted a reasonable lens they are too big for your pocket, so why bother with them at all?

If you want your reds red (in jpeg) then it's the M9, but the XZ-1 looks the sharpest to me.
