Dear all I want to buy a good camera under $200. I have zeroed down to canon ixus 265 and Olympus xz-1. I am more inclined towards canon because of high zoom, light weight, cmos sensor, optical image stabilization, newer model, and compact size. However larger sensor size (only model which gives me sensor size larger than 1/2.3" in this price range), much more manual tweaking options are still holding me towards  Olympus model. My choice is greatly dependent on the image quality, what is the...

Hi Olyfolks I have been learning a lot from DPR through a couple of years and have now become a member. Have been an Olyuser for som time (E 510, E620, XZ-1) and is considering the Stylus 1 as it seems like a great and versatile cam. One thing holdning me back from bying one is, that the wideangle starts at 28 mm. I would very much like to be able to shoot at 24 mm for landscapes and groupportraits. There is a tele conversion lens that can be used on the Stylus 1, but is there also a wide...

A few days ago I pulled the trigger on a $719 deal for the X-E1 18-55 kit, but the fulfillment date is not for another couple of weeks and now it's got me second guessing my decision, so I wanted to ask you all for your opinion. I've been lusting after the X100s for a while now, as I've been wanting a good walkabout camera for street shooting and I like what I've seen from the JPEG engine and X-Trans sensor (I'm just a hobbyist, so I primarily shoot OOC JPEGs and do very little...

I had and still have Nikon DSLR kit. To that I added m4/3 kit as "easier to carry" system with few primes and some zooms. But when hiking even OMD EM-5 with few primes is not that small and must be stored and carried in dedicated bag. Also lens changing is not fun. I am considering XZ-2 as real hiking / travel camera which could be stored in small pouch on my belt. Not to mention it packs fast and sharp lens. I used to own XZ-1 which I like(d) a lot, but at low light that camera did something...

Hi everyone, Been lurking for a while, but didn't want to contribute without my own m4/3 to bring to the party. I just picked up the E-PM2 on Amazon's cyber week sale - great to play with, and in most ways a huge step up from my XZ-1 (which will still likely be used as my daylight travel camera). My problem, however, is that I can't currently play with RAWs. I only started shooting RAWs on the XZ-1 this past spring, and relied on iPhoto to take care of processing. However, I have an older...

Have enjoyed taking macro shots of flowers and insects with my Olympus XZ-1 but have recently acquired a nearly new Nikon D90 which I am enjoying immensely. My current kit includes 35mm 1.8, 18-105 kit lens and 70-300 VR. Wondering whether a good beginning for macro with the D90 might be a set of Kenko or Vello extension tubes as opposed to something like the Nikon Micro 60mm 2.8? Would appreciate any advice regarding pros and cons of either approach. Don't think I necessarily need a micro...

Just tried out the TL20 flash I got used from eBay with my XZ-1. I put it in TTL mode and the camera in Auto mode, and it could not get it right. Every shot was pretty strongly overexposed. In P mode with flash intensity dialed down two EV's it did a lot better. I was shooting a tall red and white soft drink cup on a table. I'm thinking the white cup threw off the metering system in Auto? Any info about using this flash will be much appreciated. Thanks, David This one came out sort of okay.
