Re: Thoughts about XZ-1 settings please

Hi Ron,

Please do some testing with both your SLR and XZ-1 side by side to see its shortcomings.

I have a EOS 400D comparable to your E510 and the 4/3rds sensor in your SLR will give a different result compared to the tiny CCD on the olympus, even on Jpeg settings.

Be really careful  with add on converters you may degrade the image quality of the superb lens on this camera.Below is a RAW ORF file converted to JPEG using olympus viewer3 and some structure sharpening and border added with Snapseed. Total investment in PP software $20.00!

If the image delivered by digital zoom is acceptable to you I feel you would have been better served by one of the compact superzooms , they start at 25mm , giving that wider angle view and longer telephoto that would beat the digital zoom . Also better video than the XZ-1.
