Hello, Does the new XG-1 EVF show how the images will look, given the current exposure settings? My X-5 did not. It just gave a meter reading. A Live View is even more helpful, and both my other super zooms provide it. But I dunno. Maybe that's cheating? LOL Thanks, Dave

Hello, I have recently discovered a Minolta X-570, Motor Drive 1, Kalimar 171A flash, Quantaray 52mm lens, Minolta 50mm 1.7 lens, Minolta 135mm lens, and a Vivitar five star 500mm lens, all in a relative's attic. They said I could take it :-). Is the equipment I have decent for taking the occasional picture on the lake? Thank you for your time.

Has anyone used an IOGear Mediashair Wifi media hub for photo backup and can report on the transfer speeds? The Ravpower X5 seems not too bad as a device but is limited to 3MB/s and so would take 3 hours to backup a 32GB card. :-( I'm hoping the IOgear is a little faster than that.

Just wondering if people actually use PSP X5 or X6 for layers regularly and achieve quality results.I just upgraded my LR to LR5, and been watching tutorials for Photoshop. I'm not quite willing yet to commit to Photoshop as at this point I don't think I have a portfolio of images that demand it. But I would still like to start using layer masks for adjustments and cutting and pasting selections etc. So far it's not going so smooth in PSP X6 for me (learning the concept from scratch isn't...

I currently have PSP x2. Thinking of upgrading. Will I need to uninstall PSP x2 before installing the new version? Want to try and avoid any computer install issues. I'm using a Nikon D7000 and want to start shooting raw. --Cindy

Hi everyone. I would really appreciate some help. I recently bought a Pentax X5 camera after a frustrating experience with Panasonic TZ30. The problem is that zoom range during video shooting is only 7.2X and my feeling is that it is digital zoom, rather than optical zoom as image quality really deteriorates when you zoom. The zoom range starts at your initial zoom level and would go to 7.2X no matter what. I've looked at all the settings to see if I'm doing anything stupid but can't figure...

Today, I found my Sony DSC-H1 (2005) seems to have given up (hardly surprising).  Holding down the shutter button halfway to focus, it wouldn't focus anymore.  I doubt given its age, that it is worthwhile to have a camera store repair it.  It was only in the past couple years that I'd purchased the teleconverter lens for it ------- especially for bird photography which I really enjoy. Considering that it is good zoom that I need especially, and I'm not so sure I could handle the weight for a...

I am not sure this is the correct place for this question but, since it involves both PCs and Macs, I did not think the separate PC and Mac forums were the correct place. Many photo editors allow the user to install the software on two separate machines - usually a desktop and a laptop. I was wondering if that applied to two separate machines of which is a Mac and the other of which is a PC. Does anyone know about mixing PC/Mac licenses? As a separate question most photo editing software...

I have a DSC-W290 compact. I have taken some video with it and would like to download it to my computer for video editing with Corel Video Studio Pro X5. But X5 does not find the video data when I put the card into the reader. I can download photos, but not the video. What do I need to get the video footage into X5? Thanks, Robmac70
