They should try the Nokia 808 38MP photos or even 5MP pureview on that, battery will last much longer too ;-)

On article Roundup: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Cameras (424 comments in total)
In reply to:

JagK: Completely agreed with the conclusions.

XZ-2 is an amazing camera with excellent images. I have the XZ-1, now if only olympus would tweak their JPEG engine a bit for the XZ-1, not sure if this can be done by a firmware update.

The lens same for XZ-1 and XZ-2 is amazing all the way from the center to the corners. None of the others can match this.

When in doubt pull up the image comparison tool and see for yourself.

Agree 100%, if they also manage to keep the marvellous iZuiko Olympus little lens on the XZ-3 ;-)

All in all my current decision lies with XZ-2, as the reviewer also concluded.

At the end what matters is what a camera can deliver in variable conditions and how enjoyable it is to use, also how expandable, adding to the review that buying the CLA-12 adapter tube you can attach 55mm tele converters, fisheye lenses, filters.
You also have a pair of flexible macro LED lights that are very handy.

If want to see what the Olympus XZ-2 can really do in several conditions check out this 3 part great review by Robin Wong,
it has links to the two previous parts at the begining :

JeaPS: Do you think we could have a 'Bridge' camera buying guide?

Not much choices to make on the bridge area I guess ?
If you are willing to spend U$600 I'll go with the Fujifilm X-S1
check this out :
http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/fujifilm_finepix_x_s1_review/

I have a HS20EXR and I think is probably one of the best bridges out there for less than U$300, check my review if you like :
http://www.dpreview.com/products/Fujifilm/compacts/fujifilm_hs20exr/user-reviews-detail/1939670825

My guess is that for a little more you can get the HS25 or the HS30 and be very happy with any of them.
They are great learning tools, have manual zoom, accept filters and conversion lenses with 58mm treads, EXR 1/2" sensor takes a little bit to learn but delivers great pictures for it's size.
The larger 2/3" sensor on the X-S1 gives you a plus on image quality over the former.

In reply to:

Dougbm_2: Impressive. Maybe they should give up on phones and switch to cameras?

Small sensor point&shoot cams are doomed with this phone and the ones coming after !! Pity, now that Symbian got closer to being and enjoyable OS it will be shut down in 2016 since Nokia decided to go with Windows :(
But at least you can have a nice camera + a phone with updates for 4 more years.

In reply to:

Charles Laigo: Not that it really went away (only died down a bit), but is the megapixel race now back with a vengeance?

it has nothing to do with MP race, ok maybe it sounds like that for advertisement purposes, but the thing is it uses a large sensor and oversampling to reduce the noise by a lot. Something we see in CD players since the first ones
