Do most cameras take better pics (maybe better tonal range) when set to black and white than you would see if you converted a color pic to black and white in post using something easy like Google's Picasa or Flickr's editor?  This would be for jpegs, I know RAW its a non issue.

Hi all, I'm new into what you might call auto-off shooting, and would like to set up my XZ-2 in order to have most important controls easily available when shooting on Manual. However; I find the user manual a bit messy her. Hence I was wondering; do some of you know about any "get started on advanced settings" guide on the XZ-2 or any other Olympus with similar menu system? I know this sounds a bit contradictionary - hoping still that someone could guide me to some goodies. Thank you in...

Am I missing something? If I saved some settings in C-mode, I should be able to add some tweaks without erase the settings and start over? I read the manual but I can`t find any answers. Or is it impossible? It is very annoying to restart everything. It is a nice camera when you know the flaws Peter

I typically just shoot jpeg and do minor edits.  Well aware of all the pros of using RAW.  Something I dont understand is the in camera filter effects on my XZ-2. I know a lot are corny, but some look like fun to play with.  However, they really kill camera performance.  I wonder if I shoot RAW and then use the software that came with the camera (kinda embarrassed to say that I have not even installed it yet) can I apply the same effects more quickly?  I would hate to waste a good shot with...

Hey all! I'll begin a trip to Europe March next year and would like to know which camera should I choose down to 350 bucks. I've seen some Pana LF1, Canon S110, Olympus ZX2, Fuji X1, but I can't make my mind on those... I would need a rugged camera that could provide me the best possible pictures, either at landscapes and at night, since I'll be camping most of the time. Another point is that I'll be cycle touring, meaning that space is a important mather, so I've discarded bridge and super...

Hello, I’m new to the forum so I think I will first introduce myself then ask questions. I’m Italian (so please excuse my poor English) and live Hello, I’m new to the forum so I think I will first introduce myself then ask questions. I'm Italian and live in a small coastal town with my wife and my two daughters (aged 11 and 7). I have some photographic background and know the basics but have limited practical experience. My first digital camera was a 3MP Sony CyberShot P72, then I upgraded to...

I am a little confused with the modes.  I know it can do both, vertical and horizontal.  The below shot was taken with IS2, vertical stabilization because I wanted the sensor stabilized vertically while I panned horizontally.  Is that the right logic?  Also, I know LED lights will appear dotted in slow shutters but whats with that blotchy look to the upper left of frame?  Is that the sensor jumping?  Or maybe they are LEDs and that is why their reflection in the pavement appears...

Hi, I would like to ask about your experience with the MagFilter adapter/polarizer on the camera. What type and size do you use? Does it fit to the lens well? It causes some problems such as vignetting, etc..? I am thinking in particular about buying the smaller MagFilter adapter for 49 mm filters. I also know about the lens tube adapters but I do not like them because they are too large. Thank you very much for your help! Lukas

Skip to paragraph 3 to avoid the backstory... I currently own two Sony cameras, a DSC-P150 that I got about 10 years ago and a DSC-H7 that I got about 6 years ago. The P150 has been a tank and is still going strong, in spite of a broken battery door and a couple of artifacts on the sensor. I haven't ever been truly happy with the H7. It never has given me the quality or the control that I desired. Sony is great, but I hesitate to get another. I just don't like their quirks. I do not feel like...

Anybody have any luck with the wifi sd cards and the XZ-2?  I know there are maybe three options, the EyeFi, the Toshiba, and maybe another.  Anyone have any luck?  It looks like Olympus pushes the Toshiba card.  Any particular reason?
