  • 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, ...
  • Olympus seem to keep it a secret but most recent compacts happily take a remote shutter in their charging port. I have a cheap one I grabbed online that I can use on my wife's SH-25 plus the ...
  • I see four on ours.
  • 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 ...
