X-S1 2/3in sensor: better IQ than FZ150 1/2.3in sensor? I like the FZ150 for many things, including good IQ considering the size of its sensor. Years ago I had the Fuji S100, and when I look at the images, in many cases it's evident that the 2/3in sensor generated better IQ than the FZ150. Less noise. (I sold the S100 because of its anemic burst rate, small buffer and slow write times.) The question: does the 2/3in CMOS sensor in the X-S1 deliver better IQ than the 1/2.3in CMOS sensor...
After reading numerous threads about teleconverters, it seems that canon TC DC58A or Olympus B300 would work best for my budget. Now question is where to find them? From my readings I understand that DC58A is not made any more? Ideally I'm looking for new items but can't find them anywhere. Any advice?
My 76 year old friend is hoping for a Bridge camera with viewfinder for photographing flowers, insects and birds as well as the grandchildren. I have the FZ150, bit more complicated to use than the FZ20, the viewfinder is not great and the intelligent auto which I suspect she often uses gives images that are often over-exposed. She does not have Photoshop but is looking to get good, crisp images. What would be your suggestion?
I had just about settled on getting the Sony Cybershot HX200V when I saw notes on here raving about the RX100 which is a lot more expensive. Then I found out the newest model up from the HX200V has come out which is the HX300. Now I've read a few negative reviews about the newer model, one that said it was "problematic." I'm an amateur photographer who's constantly learning and wanting a newer camera to learn on. I do have the Sony Alpha A57 and two lens but sometimes prefer a smaller...
Hi all,I was wondering whether there has been any official word from Panasonic or any kind of reliable inside information as far as a follow-up model in the bridge camera line goes. Can we expect a follow-up model to the Lumix DMC-FZ200 still this year? Are there any details as to the release time and specifications of such a successor? (It might be relevant in this context to know what release cycle Panasonic was on for this camera line before, which most people here probably know much...
I have tried looking on the Panasonic website and gotten nowhere! Is there or has there ever been a way to find out if the firmware on the FZ150 was ever updated? I know this camera is discontinued but my college-age daughter uses it primarily and recently asked me this question. Now I know on some brands it's easy to see if the firmware is updated, but navigating the Panny site on an "older" camera is ridiculous at least to me! Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
