  • Hi Sue Anne.  Nice to see that someone is still using the A1200. This photo is from my second A1200. I gave the first one away because all the pictures taken with it was very blurry. Must have ...
  • Thank you for these action pics. The photo's of the SX70 that we are seeing here, is getting and better by the day, even surpassing the SX50 which I still use. Not sure yet but it looks like RAW ...
  • I follow your posts re the SX70 with great interest because I am still deciding between the now much cheaper SX60 and the SX70. I m very impressed by the high quality photo's you are producing ...
  • As much as I love and cherish the SX50, I am fully in agreement with you. What I need is a SX50 on steroids! Regards H
  • Replied in Why bother?...
    There is a very interesting article by Carl Spring in the March edition of DPS: "Are Canon and Nikon the New Kodak?" https://digital-photography-school.com/are-canon-and-nikon-the-new-kodak/?utm_so ...

    justMN wrote: "Going forward, we (Canon) will continue to expand sales mainly for G series cameras." Thank you for your valuable contribution. Now we know at least where the Canon market (and ...
  • I also had the dreaded E18 lens error on my A650. With the aid of instructions and pictures found on the Internet I took the camera apart making notes as I went along. However, after spending many ...
  • Replied in Why bother?...
    I can understand and share your frustration with Canon and I am pretty sure that there are more people out there that will be in agreement with you. The reason why I still visit this forum ...
  • I am also in agreement with your suggestion.  This way we can share a wealth of information across the various brands without (hopefully) knocking down a specific brand.  It could be a great way ...
  • Replied in SX40 HS - Cold
    The SX40 is one camera that I will never get rid of because of its fantastic lens as can be seen here in photo No 1.  Personally my vote goes to No 3 for composition and rule of thirds. It looks ...
  • Replied in 2nd set
    Thanks for the advice, although it hurts to think I must put my camera's lens flush against a window!  But your photos have inspired me to give it another try. If it does not look too bad, I will ...
  • Replied in 2nd set
    Thank you for this interesting trip to the aquarium.  Beautifully done. Especially set no 2 through the glass windows. Most of the time I manage to get a lot of reflections when I try to take ...
  • I think I got confused between the numbers. In stead of the SX270 I went and bought a SX720! I only noticed it now when I was reading your post again. Anyway I thought I would let you know.  ...
  • Currently I have the SX260 and I am considering buying a used SX280. I see you say that the "battery problem" only refers to movies. In that case it won.t affect me because I take very few movies. ...
  • At first I thought Stephen must have lost his marbles... but now it is working beautifully.  I just love the different shades of lighting effects one can create this way.  You should have told me ...
  • Thank you Stephen.  I forgot it has to be in the spot modes. Now let me try again. Regards Henning
  • Thank you very much for the time and effort you have put into the SX60 and SX70 so far. I am amazed at the sharpness and IQ of the last one at ISO 1000 without pixel peeping. Did a little noise ...
  • Stephen McDonald: "off-target focus and exposure" Now this is something that I have not tried before.  Can't wait for my next moon shot!  Thank you very much for the tip. Never to old to learn new ...
  • Even a blind man (and believe me there are quite a few around here) will have to admit that the FZ80 produces very sharp and high IQ photo's in the right hands! Regards
  • At this stage I have sharpness on +2 (max)!!!!!, contrast on +1 and red, green and blue also on +1. The rest are all on default (0).  NR is on "Low'".  And ISO on 80 as far as possible.  I try not ...
