  • I've just bought an NX Mini partially based on the studio test shown here. I know my eyes are getting old but its performance is exceptional in the studio scene. Now that the battery is finally ...
  • It likely is the pick of the current crop of travel zooms, I check camera review sites fairly often and have to think there's a strong air of bias, my eyes are far from perfect but I like to pixel ...
  • I must thank you for this post, these are the best samples I've seen so far from this camera which is on my check list. I can see myself buying one despite it not ticking all my boxes. That fruit ...
  • Ouch, actually I have don't have any plan to ever buy a device that starts with an i, anyway I've become allergic to phones fairly completely over the last 30 years so for me the tool I prefer is ...
  • Size, smaller and cheaper lenses and smaller more convenient bodies. Good luck having eyes that can detect any real quality difference in results. Anyway my moan mainly concerns compacts. Nikon, ...
  • Replied in Satisfied?
    Not really, I suffer from GAS as much as anybody but this little hidden gem has served me wonderfully and has just started its 3rd year of being my main camera, I suppose its done about 20,000 ...
  • Created discussions Morose musing.
    I can't see this having much of an export market. SZ-16 I'd love to find a new toy to succeed my faithful SZ-16 but the market is either stagnant or moved in a direction that's not for me, I post a ...
  • Short answer, think zoom, think pockets, think being able to recharge via a USB cable, an obtuse thing that's very handy when travelling. Read reviews, use your own eyes to evaluate samples, don't ...
  • Nothing to do with Pentax but I took this shot when I was over there a couple of years ago. All Philippines beers are superb. Olympus SZ-16, an excellent travel camera. I'm seriously thinking of ...
  • All those shots were taken at the widest (least) zoom, the current fashion for a wide short end has multitudes of cameras with blurry edges. I find myself automatically zooming a camera just a ...
  • From another angle using a SZ-16 Happily or sadly for me I've held off getting a new Olympus travelzoom as my eyes just can't see any evidence there's any picture improvement since my SZ-16, all it ...
  • Mines still good after about 20,000 shots, I try hard to have a stable technique though.
  • Replied in Spider - SZ-16
    It looks like you've ordered a champion camera but don't assume your SZ-16 will be left gathering dust upon its arrival. Superzooms are fantastic but suffer the same cumbersome size issue that ...
  • Replied in Spider - SZ-16
    Spiders eat the type of bug that actually does irk me, so I leave them alone, even saying hello to them and the house geckos when I see them. Depth of field is one of the areas where smaller sensor ...
  • Replied in Spider - SZ-16
    It was quite a small spider, only about 1 cm long or so, I just saw it on our bathroom mirror, they don't suffer the curse of gravity like we do so upwards is to the right of shot and I rested the ...
  • Created discussions Spider - SZ-16
    I haven't uploaded any pictures here for a while so here's a spider I shot this morning. ISO 800. I've always found spiders a most difficult subject so despite this piccie's flaws I'm happy. I've ...
  • It says clearly on the picture that it has a 7.4 x 5.6 mm sensor, I really wish the world would give no credence to that gobbledygook system camera makers continue to thrust upon users in the hope ...
  • I can't answer but the cheap RM-UC1 remote shutter copies commonly found on eBay and places operate a selection of Olympus cameras even though it doesn't appear to be documented. They work my ...
  • RAW is a non-issue for me Henry, I simply can't be bothered adding another layer of complexity for minimal return. I'm a glorified hobbyist or even a fancy snapshooter but I do tend whenever ...
  • Created user reviews 2 years and still a champion.
    On day one I took photos from my SZ-16ihs and they just hit my tired old eyes sweet spot, there's something special about this camera. I bought it for a major trip and it was a fantastic choice, ...
