  • This question is for those of you who, like me, find the watercolor effect of the 6S/6S+ camera to be extremely off-putting. Especially when it comes to photographing faces. I'm lucky enough to ...
  • Replied in S100 Batteries
    I live in Taiwan, and the ones I get have no English name on them. Just get whatever's cheapest; they'll work fine. I buy them in the local electrical or camera shop.
  • Replied in S100 Batteries
    Same with my S100. Any 3rd party batteries will be fine. I've been using them for years, with a variety of cameras. Some last longer than others. Some swell quicker than others. Just throw them ...
  • That's funny. In days gone by, one would constanly read people complaining that dpreview only ever published Canon reviews at the expense of everything else! How times change.
  • I feel your pain! Apple no longer cares for the people who have supported it from the beginning. Yet again, they trash a perfectly reasonable app that long time users have invested heavily in, and ...
  • Apple are supposedly bringing out a new 4" iPhone in the middle of this month. Nobody is sure of this, but they are sure that if Apple do this, the phone will be in the stores 3 days later. It ...
  • Sorry, I don't use Spotlight to do this, so can offer no solutions for you. Regards
  • I would imagine that it's been done because (a) the cameras aren't ready yet, but (b) they specifically want to make people who are about to jump onto a Canon G7X Mk2 or Panasonic TZ100 hold ...
  • I didn't know that. The multi-frame noise reduction (and hand-held night mode) work incredibly well on my Sony A55. Cameras are a bit like cars I reckon. The bits that aren't there were definitely ...
  • Thanks for the replies, which make for interesting reading. I agree that 1 fps is probably going to be enough for most people (including me). I just don't understand how a camera as old as the ...
  • Thanks for the info which is a bit disturbing. I just put my S100 into continuous shooting mode and RAW, to see what it can do. There was about a second of black screen after the first shot, but ...
  • I am reading a lot of reviews about the G7X, and they all mention how the camera slows down dramatically when shooting RAW. I would interested to know how the G7X compares to the S100 when shooting ...
  • Thanks for the reply, Mark. I think my problem was a combination of (a) not understanding - or remembering - the stuff you have written above from the manual; and (b) not understanding the GPS icon ...
  • Sorry, I have no idea why this tag has attached itself to my question: KODAK PIXPRO S-1
  • Created question thread S100 GPS question
    I've been shooting a lot recently with my S100, always with the GPS turned on. I look at my photos on my iPhone, on my iPad, and on my Mac in Photos for Mac, iPhoto and Google Photos. For photos ...
