  • Replied in hope and pray
    I have to admire your perseverance.  The two kingfisher shots are very nice for starters, so I hope to see more and better shots in the future.   Your efforts inspire me to try something similar ...
  • Ben, If the fifth digit in the serial number is a zero, then you may have an issue with over-exposure when there's a strong light behind you (like the sun) and the LCD panel is hinged out.  ...
  • Nice!  And you saved the box and all the stuff that came with it.  That's so rare.
  • John, All the G series had strap attachment points on both sides of the body, and they came with a narrow strap that went around your neck and attached to both strap lugs.  You need something like ...
  • John, You didn't say if you use RAW.  If you do, that would let out the G7, although it's sharp and has very good color.  I actually preferred it over the G9.  And, of course; both have that OVF issue.
  • I'd have to guess it bayonets onto the outside of the lens, so you can't use a filter and the hood at the same time? Besides, where's the fun in just buying something?  LOL!
  • Nigel, A couple of comments, and a question, or two. First, the RX10III does very well at Mesa Verde.  Nice clean details. Second, the last shot, of the Doge's Palace shows a lot of noise in the ...
  • John, I may be able to help.  I have owned the G5, G6, G7, G9, G11, G12, and G15.  Unless you're into nostalgia, I don't recommend the G5 or G6. The G7 has 10 MP, and the G9 has 12 MP.  Both cover ...
  • Those "threads" might be able to be adapted for a filter.  Years ago, I had a Canon SX50HS which used bayonet lugs on the outside of the lens to attach a hood or a filter adapter; but you couldn't ...
  • If you were to go with an interchangeable lens camera, I'd have several comments to the negative.  First, it would not complement; but replace the ZS200.  Second, you'd gain a lot of extra weight ...
  • I've had several S3IS and S5IS; even taking an S5IS on a trip to the Galapagos Islands; but eventually moved over to Panasonic as they added CA correction well before Canon.  Some shots in the ...
  • Carl, The FZ300 appears to have been stable in performance from day 1.  So buying a second one is much less a crap game than the Pro 1 or the FZ200.  Over many years, I can't think of many cameras ...
  • Two at the same time?  For me that was all in the film era with two Nikon FE2 (twice), two Pentax Super Program, and two Pentax Super A (the black Euro version of the Super Program). I may also be ...
  • Unfortunately, the FZ300 uses a different hood with shorter "petals".  An FZ200 hood hits the body and causes a lens error.
  • Good suggestions.  I'd add one more.  Their circuit boards are not coated.  They should be coated with a UV curable polyurethane.  Equipment to do that is largely automatic, can recognize ...
  • Have you tried iZoom?  It's significantly better than regular digital zoom.  It "only" goes to 2x.
  • Since I had an S95 with the Franiec grip added, I gave away my S90.   I also have the G7X II; which is a great camera; but the S95 is so much smaller and lighter, and more comfortable to ...
  • Yes, we were in the seemingly endless McNamara terminal last summer on our way to Alaska.  My wife has trouble walking long distances, and I pushed her in a wheelchair the whole length of the ...
  • I have considered it.  At one time, there was an adhesive backed cold shoe available from a photo outfit in Kansas City.  With a very long focal length lens, I would really like a hot shoe to ...
  • I think Saudi Dave is spot on.  Panasonics, as a general rule, are a bit soft in their default state (i.e. straight out of the box).  He has shown that with use of the internal controls for ...
