On a photo in the Panasonic Lumix ZS100/TZ100 real world samples sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Overall, I don't like the jpgs. Raw look better. I only shoot RAW.
I may get this camera for a second camera and walk around camera. I like the specs. Is the EVF as bad as they say?

I want that bird. He/she is too funny. Looks a little like a cowboy getting ready to draw his guns with his wings at his side like that.

I can see why you didn't like this camera. Not sharp at all, no depth of field either. But at f5 and 1/30 I wouldn't expect much of a clear picture.

On article An In-depth Discussion of M + Auto-ISO for Canon SLRs (38 comments in total)

I tried the M + Auto ISO and for the most part if works well. One issue is when there is too much light and the ISO can't drop low enough. I was shooting at 1/500 and f8 and the ISO couldn't get low enough to avoid a blown out image. Realizing this I adjusted the f stop and things worked OK. The lens is a 70-300 which is nearly 500 with the Canon 60D so I use 1/500 shutter speed.
