Lin Evans: More California stupidity - Who cares about pictures in Laguna Beach anyway - there are far better places to photograph than this greedy little comunity...

I was raised in southern California - I'm totally familiar with all the beaches and I still think that Laguna Beach is a "greedy little community." Yes, I've been to most of the beaches at sunset in the summer and I've never seen a photographer "harming the wildlife." Of course you're welcome to your opinion as am I so we will agree to disagree...

The state has a debt of 1.3 trillion dollars !!! They may have a large GNP but their leadership is highly questionable. http://californiapolicycenter.org/can-californias-economy-withstand-1-3-trillion-of-government-debt/

It's not possible to prevent a "theft" with a screen capture. Anyone wanting an image bad enough to steal it will easily circumvent these measures.

dialstatic: Not being from, well, wherever Laguna Beach is, I have to wonder: what is so special about the place? I'm not trying to knock it - genuinely interested.

IMHO nothing is "special" about Laguna Beach - There are literally thousands of miles of beach front on the west coast which are equal to or in many cases very much better than Laguna beach. My opinion? Don't waste your time...

After looking at the image quality produced by these "long zoom" cameras - unless I just HAD to have 4K video, I wouldn't trade my P900 Nikon or my SX50 HS Canon for any of them, and that includes "image quality."

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (891 comments in total)

I definitely prefer a good optical viewfinder for sports, wildlife, action, etc., but for studio work a really good EVF does have decided advantages. It takes the guess work out of what the image will look like and reduces the need for bracketing, etc. I first became a fan of the EVF with my Sony DSC F828 and especially my Sony DSC R1. The R1's EVF saved me hours of time with studio shots by being able to let me make micro-adjustments to lighting and see them reflected in real time as the camera saw them.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Olympus C-2100UZ (126 comments in total)

Was and still is a great little camera. I still have my UZI and my 15fps E100RS as well as my C2020Z and a waterproof case for it. All still work perfectly and take great images... Olympus was breaking new ground. The E100RS would start taking images and cycle them in and out of RAM untill you pressed the shutter so you could get amazing frames such as the moment of impact when a major league pitcher's over-the-plate fastball was sent into left-field by a dead on hit at the plate. The UZI would let you zoom in on the action and get great wildlife shots with its stabilized zoom lens. Great products IMHO...

I still have and use my 950, 990 and 4500. They are all great for digiscoping as well as for quick macro's. Excellent and versatile instrument...

Thanks! This prompted me to get mine out of the safe and fire it up! Great camera - built like a tank and used the same technology for beam splitting as my earlier 1.5 megapixel Sony DSC D700 and D770 models (still have all of them) but with that great 4 megapixel sensor. It's heft got me in shape for my next 4mp chunk of magnesium, my Canon EOS 1D which when mated with my old Canon 100-400L IS was a load to carry.

Great job guys - just don't let the cowboys hear you say "steer riding" - LOL Those "steers" have all their original equipment!

RaghavBaijal: Even though this is impressive and all, 10-15 years from now, I wouldn't be surprised if I see a 100MP APSC sensor in a rangefinder sized body. And, it would probably do better high ISO.

And people would still be complaining about how the Kit Lens doesn't resolve more than 40MP because of which their pics look like horse $#@.

I downloaded the 700mb zipped file containing two tiff images which to me were disappointing because they were primarioly snow on mountains with nothing to indicate the overall color or detail capabilities. There were penguins on a ridge and dark trees with no way to really determine the quality of image other than to say that there was sufficient sharpness across the portions of in-focus capture. It would have been ever so much more meaningful to have given the reader some more interesting subject matter. Perhaps trees with leaves and flowers with color or even an insect. I really know very little more about the true capabilities of the camera and sensor than gleaned from reading the advertising....

In reply to:

GEwart: I've just bought the SX60, I wasn't even tempted buy the P900 even if it was readily available despite it's amazing lens. The images I've seen are too smudged with in camera noise reduction. Now if the Nikon had the Canon sensor.... how often can one say that?

Perhaps the images were made with too much noise reduction applied? I have had every Canon super zoom since their first through the SX50 HS which I still have and use frequently. I also have the Nikon P900 and I can tell you with absolute assurance that the P900 has higher image quality than my SX50 HS... Just saying...

Lots of peripheral CA - hope it can be greatly compensated in lens correction...
