  • Feels like spring to me Orchid in our back yard.
  • Full size but saved with Irfanview's default 80% compression. Here's a shot to peruse, I've been a bit tied up of late and our weather has a grey wintry feel about it now which has reduced my sense ...
  • Mine finally arrived today, I wish I'd bought a grey market one from another country as delivery would have been sure to be faster. I've only taken a handful of snaps thus far and must say it ...
  • There's one full size shot on the Nikon Australia website. I ordered one last week because it was good enough and cheap, it may make a handy knockabout camera for me as it doesn't have to be great, ...
  • Created discussions Heads up: SH-50
    Photographyblog.com has just posted a review of the SH-50. It's the camera I would have grabbed when I bought my SZ-16 but it wasn't yet available, no regrets though as the SZ-16 photos are pretty ...
  • Replied in New Oly P&S
    I really must get around to testing if it's really worth my effort to change up from normal compression, I take 1000s of photos and the smaller file size is handy, I noted some years ago on ...
  • Photographyblog.com has sample shots from the S9700, so it must be awaiting review. This is a camera I'm monitoring for possible purchase, the GPS makes it more desirable to me than the excellent ...
  • My SZ-16 also has a manual flip up switch which also is my preference, the flash could be stronger though but that's a common moan with compacts, they're all a bit weak, the possible exception ...
  • I have a SZ-16 which I bought upon release to take on a trip to Philippines, at the time I was quite eager to grab a SH-50 but its release was delayed a fair bit. As soon as my SZ-16 arrived I was ...
  • I'm thinking an SH-60 or whatever they call it may be what I want, take an SH-50 add a GPS, add a minor sensor update, tweak the lens a bit, perhaps even changing the current 24x from wide to a ...
  • Good stuff Henry, love the purple flower shot. We're currently having a little flooding here and I'm reminding myself how much I like your camera's little brother the SZ-16. A little flooding on ...
  • Replied in Clue 2
    It is Max, I only posted for a bit of fun as I visited it again only a few days ago. It has a drop of 268 metres and appears to have a lovely swimming hole at the top but in this nanny country ...
  • Replied in Clue 2
    Since you filled in the details for me Max I may as well post a simple teaser. Clue: a little known and seldom visited waterfall in Australia that's quite close to me.
  • Replied in Clue 2
    I'm thinking Awhitu but I'll leave the district details so someone more worthy can claim it.
  • Replied in SX700 samples
    The stained glass window shot gives me enough reason to tick my buy box but I've been wanting to see some results from the Nikon S9700 since it has a built-in GPS and would tick an extra box if ...
  • I just had a go with my lovely pink made in China model, it worked fine. First deliberate video I've done with it, maybe the last for a while too, I'm not an habitual video user.
  • I just did a test on myself, not easy with nobody to help. One with redeye reduction and one without, there's some focus issues and it was fairly dim so the camera chose ISO 400 with the iAuto setting.
  • Mine finally arrived last week, my first impression is the reviews are pretty right. A few samples, full pixel sized but saved with more compression. ISO 800. The sun was rising and I was just ...
  • From what I've seen on-line it's way behind. A bit sad really but CCDs now seem to be off the pace.
  • Yes. I posted the tale and a few pics to my weblog http://jimpicturetrail.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/olympus-sz-16-sensor-cleaning.html
