On article Picasa will be phased out in favor of Google Photos (151 comments in total)
In reply to:

William J Brown: So, if I keep local copies (in Windows and Mac formats, as helpfully suggested in the earlier comments -- thanks for that, too!), and I continue to use Picasa on my desktop(s), will I be able to PUBLISH to Google Photos in the future??

(Maybe that was clearly stated at the outset, but I've become "less clear" after reading the 65 and counting comments below)

Thank you :)

William,
Google says that Picasa will continue to work as it does today, including uploading to Google Photos and Syncing. Unfortunately that does not include the 16MP free "High Quality" upload, but you can choose "Original size" and recover the storage later.

"... now has filed a patent application " is not correct.

All this excitement comes a bit late ...

@graybalanced
I know. But the first I cited is the published application of the patent that was published a few days ago, and contains the same technical information.
The first I cited is a "Continuation" of the earlier, thus also related, but probably contains also new information.

On article Just Posted: Enthusiast Zoom Compact Camera Roundup (124 comments in total)
In reply to:

vassilis gazelos: Hi all, I'm trying to decide on a new compact/bridge camera and this review came out on time even though it doesn't inlcude the bridge/large zoom cameras! I don't have first hand real life experience of either of these so I'm trying to narrow down the selection from the reviews and comments. I'm looking for the best image quality, full manual control, widest angle 24mm/25mm, long exposure, braketing. I was considering the FZ200 or SX50HS however these have significnalty smaller sensors than the ones reviewed in this article. Could anyone assist me with some real life experience and regardless of the budget how these different types compare. Is the image quality (and Depth of Field) of the comeras here noticeably better?
P.S> The only reference I have is via a friend's Canon older Gseries which produced some relay good results (I don't rememer the widest angle though).
My experience ranges from a SLR Canon F1 (multiple lenses) to a point a shoot Sony DSC T7
Thank you

If you need 24/25 mm then the Lumix LX7 must be an excellent choice. Excellent fast lens. No long tele, but you cannot have it all. Pretty small too. Fits in a pocket. Still my favourite.
