Hi all. I find the auto-focus on this camera to be woeful. Just been away on a trip and experienced the same issues I have now on several other occasions. When taking shots with a lot of sky (whether clear or cloudy or shots in low light where there is not a vivid contrasting object to focus on) the auto focus just gives up the ghost. At least with my old s95 it used to go to infinity and allow a shot to be taken.  And even when there is good contrast, it takes its time.  I prefer to point...

Hi, I'm thinking of replacing my old Canon S90 as I'd like something that takes better video. The option to shoot in RAW would also be nice, but not a deal breaker. I'd prefer a Canon as I'm a long time user so familiar with menu layouts etc. I haven't been keeping up with what's hot and what's not in the compact world, so was hoping to get a few suggestions to look into. I should also add that I'm looking for a jack of all trades - some landscape, some sport, holiday snaps etc... I see a new...

I saw on fatwallet's hot deals forum that DxO Optics Pro 8 (two versions behind the current version) is available for free from DxO through February 28th. I've typically used Picasa, shotwell and gimp (all on ubuntu Linux) for simple post processing, but I've seen in these forums others refer to DxO for converting RAW image files. Is DxO Optics Pro 8 worth installing? I just ordered a refurbished Canon SX50 (and I have a Canon S90). Thanks,                                                    ...

Hi Folks, I picked up a FlashAir card to go with my new XZ-2 with a view to using my phone as a remote commander, via the Remote Control function in the Olympus Image Share app. I've had a ton of fun just getting the FlashAir to show up on my list of WiFi networks but now that I've achieved that, it seems like all I can do is import pics.  Silly me for thinking that the only real value of pairing the XZ-2 with a FlashAir card is so as to have a Remote Control built into my phone for whenever...

Hi Folks, Just picked up a reconditioned XZ-2 & wanted to check the shutter count but can't seem to find anything on that. Can find it for all the PENs, the XZ-1, etc. but NOT the XZ-2. There is a ton of advice suggesting that this method may work on the XZ-2 but it doesn't so if anyone truly in the know can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

As I near 60yrs of age, Ive been going back to a little film photography, and in many respects, enjoying the results. For over 55years, Ive taught myself photography (last 10yrs digital) , but Ive never got into post processing, photoshop, or lightroom. I'm enjoying thinking about each shot, and noticing how film (color neg) is less harsh on shadow than digital. Ive bought a tidy m6ttl, and a new 50mm summilux. Ive also bought a Olympus OM2, also with a f1.4 50mm lens Ive shot a few rolls of...

We travel extensively, and have enjoyed using the D200 and 18-200 lens since early 2006.... when we have an opportunity to carry gear of that size/ weight (whilst using canon s90 in the pocket for trekking and skiing holidays) We have a trip to India booked, and Im sure that 18-200 lens will still be perfect.... but, which body ?? To be frank, I don't understand the tech detail about improvements to sensors, and I don't post process. I shoot JPEGS, and try and nail the shot through correct...

Hi Guys, I just picked up a bargain priced E-PM2 &, without success, I'm bouncing around the menus trying to figure out how to switch off those irritating help text messages that pop up every time you move to a new menu item. Please point me in the right direction.

I've used Nikon for many years. I fell in love with an F3 with a single prime lens over 25 years ago beat it for over a decade (best camera I ever owned) and since gong digital have owned a range of Nikon DSLR's over the last 10 years. Since 2008 I've been using a D300 paired with a couple of great zoom lenses (17-55mm f/2.8G ED & 70-200mm f/2.8G ED). I use the gear to record family outings, social events, holidays, hiking, camping. But in the last year or two I've taken it out less and less...
