  • You're not being very clear here, I have to think that it's also not taking photos as if it was then the battery would be fine. I've had drama in the past with flat batteries not registering with ...
  • I imagine the P900 is like many other long zoom cameras as well as the P510 that I have, the trick is to select macro mode then walk back a bit and use plenty of zoom to capture your shot.
  • Replied in Nikon S7000
    Wow, there's been a total lack of info about the S7000, I've just bought one for the same reasons and have been quite pleasantly surprised so far and think it may get far more use than I expected. ...
  • We're on the same wavelength, I've been loving my SZ16 for three years now and there's plenty to like about it. Right from day one when I first tested it the photos just had a look that was so ...
  • Big whoopsie from me, albeit not helped by an awkward setup by dpreview. I'm talking about the nearly released Canon SX620 HS.
  • Created question thread In camera charging.
    I've seen on specs that it doesn't support in camera USB charging, I'm hoping that's wrong as I think it's important for a travel camera to be able to charge via USB, can anyone confirm?
  • You've got me beaten, mine was a Kodak DC25 bought also in 1996, I was cashed up at the time, walked into a store and saw them pushing these new digital cameras, so being male I had to satisfy my ...
  • And a review at https://www.ephotozine.com/ which has put it back on my desirable list.
  • Some test shots are up at http://www.imaging-resource.com/ From what I've seen it's still not enough of a advance to pension off my now aged Olympus SZ-16, hopefully someone shall post some more ...
  • It's a difficult concept isn't it? I'm a lover of pocket travel zooms too and have been using what's really a top performer at a rock bottom price, the Olympus SZ-16 since its release 3 years ago, ...
  • Don't take it too hard even my Samsung NX-Mini suffers from the same issue. Cropped but full pixel size, taken with normal compression but reduced further using good old Irfanview. I've just taken ...
  • I feel a bit embarrassed, I think I've only posted one what I consider very nice shot of our table here using my NX Mini, not what I'd call a macro though. Out of my budget at this point, but I did ...
  • I bought mine partially based on the studio shot scene here, I like to use my eyes on camera reviews to determine how they go. I actually preferred the old studio scene but with the new one I tend ...
  • I'd sooner they thought outside the square, the current Sony number 1 sensor is that good that makers have already jumped onto making a stream of cameras with it, at least to me it's shown that ...
  • Colour choice is a factor in my purchases. My latest camera is a Samsung NX-mini in the lovely mint green colour, it was a tough choice between that and the pink. The way the camera market has ...
  • Created photo thread Milk.
    ISO 800. I took this photo the other day after we bought some milk at a good price, then I got to thinking there isn't much NX-mini stuff posted and I think this shot may be a good example. Handhel ...
  • It will be dust on the sensor, sorry I don't have an EX1 so I can't give instructions how to access the sensor but on compact cameras of mine it involves undoing the case screws, removing the ...
  • If image quality is a major consideration then at that price nothing comes within a bulls roar of the Samsung NX-mini, just load up the new studio comparison tool on this site and use you own eyes ...
  • I've been using the same system for dealing with my photos for over a decade using the excellent and free Irfanview, which I also use for all my viewing and editing needs. I use the batch file ...
  • "even with the mini" is a bit of an insult, I think there's a few of us, or at least me who were so taken by the studio comparison test used by this site that its dropped price only triggered our ...
