  • On Windows 10, Home I use Picasa and FastStone.  However on downloading photos from cameras they all go to Windows "Pictures" which then goes to Picasa for cataloging and editing. Clicking the ...
  • Replied in SX70 HS Review
    Well, not quite up to a fully trusted review.  For one thing not mentioning the lack of a hot shoe shows somewhat weak observation.  Another is the snapshot size  photo samples with no EXIF data.  ...
  • Replied in Quebec, Canada
    Great shot.  You really should reshoot with a car or whatever included. Heard much more snow to come for the North-east.  Ours seems to be letting up somewhat, I hope.  You go to some detail in ...
  • Here in the true north / south west we rarely see an inch of the white stuff.  Last year none and when it does snow a little it's gone before shovels can be found.  For the last few days it ...
  • Thanks for the interesting series on all 3 cameras.  As post processing can improve most all images (also destroy) it can also leave a lot of questions re the cameras true ability.  These do show ...
  • See the thread below.  "SX10 IS Dead LCD Screen".  May be of interest.
  • Agreed.  I perhaps have nagged this one to death and it goes on regardless.  :-)    They take a little give a little. That's their marketing philosophy. Why not go with Panasonic or Sony?  I much ...
  • Replied in SX40 HS - Cold
    Still have and use the SX40 as backup to the SX50.  At 35x vs 50 zoom range I tend to favor the 50.  The humpy look of the 40 was an initial put-off but it grows on you.  The slightly faster lens ...
  • As expected the SX70 will no doubt be the last of the SX line.  The G series will be the step-up from the cell phone mass market.  There is much work to be done on increasing the zoom range to ...
  • I find that with the newer wide screen monitors that there is more spare space on the sides than on the top or bottom.  There is presently 40 bookmarks up the left side of FF on a 10/16 Dell.  and ...
  • As I get ever older speed becomes ever less important.  :-) Yes, I too want those bookmarks on the left.  FF and IE does that and they stay there.  Edge has them on the right and even with the tack ...
  • Yes, to get 'it all' in a single package is asking a lot more than presently possible.  Tiny sensors are improving mostly through cell phone development.  However the big improvements comes ...
  • I have a question.   Why would anyone want Chrome?  Even Edge looks better.  Firefox #1.  It does it all and simply works.  Just my humble opinion of coarse.  :-)
  • Those 2 shots tell it all as to why the newest SX cams are so great.  Try that with a bulky 3 lens DSLR.  The one pack "does it all" camera does a credible job at low cost. Only 3 little things ...
  • Amazingly good detail.  Well done.  I may have missed something here but where did this parade take place?  France, China ??
  • Tried the SX10 with new batteries and a factory reset.  The LCD does work when twisted fully around so the screen is in the screen out position.  Swung straight out from there it stays on but any ...
  • Yes.  It says a lot.  My SX10 finally failed with the same LCD problem.  I took it apart and found nothing but checked connectors.  It worked briefly then went blank again.  It now sits on a ...
  • Yes, to date only used Canon batteries.  I would not go with unproven products that could cause camera damage, be short lived or poor performance. Mind if I ask where you purchased Patona ?  Some ...
  • Amazon show a lot of third party LP-E12 batteries.  Wasabi has a 2 pack with charger for about $48.oo vs Canon's single battery for $69.oo.  The Canon is 875 mAh, the Wasabi 1100 mAh.   Some of ...
  • Yes, I am now trying to use more spot exposure now and also with the SX40 / 50 the EC is adjusted up to -1.33 when whites would get blown in full sun.  Shooting ships with very white uppers and ...
