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?

Not sure if "lines" is the right term, but here goes...  My Pentax DSLR, and probably many others, has a setting for adjusting the Program mode algorithms.  You could set it to lean towards fast shutter or slow shutter, for example.  I am wondering if there is something like that on my XZ-2.  I would like to use P, make a few adjustments to color and white balance, and save it as a custom profile.  But I want this P to error on the side of fast shutter and smaller aperture while boosting ISO...

I tried some long exposure night shoots with my XZ-2 on a tripod. I found out that in P and A modes the camera won't set the shutter speed slower than a certain value. For example with f1.8 it'l go to max 1/2 sec. With f8.0 the max is 4 sec. I read and re-read the manual and found no mention of this limitation... In M and S modes shutter speed can be set up to 60 seconds and value I expected it could go to that value in other modes also. Why is that? Am I doing something wrong?

I've got a Fujifilm FinePix F31fs for 6 years now and to me it's still one of the best pocketable cameras for taking good quality photos even up to this day. It's just that it tends to start having some quirks now after this many years of use and I'm starting to look for a possible "successor" which would take over the main job of my FinePix cam. The key-features I truly appreciate of the F31fd are: compact, lightweight and very pocketable larger 1/1.7" sensor very responsive, fast...

I have an XZ-1 and love it except for the terrible video focusing issues which are well documented.  Does anyone have any experience with video on the xz-2, namely have they fixed the focus hunting problem..  A sample video would be nice.  Does anyone have any links to video samples for the xz-2.
