  • Yeah, I would like to know, too. For what it's worth, (and it's probably too late), here are my recommendations. Nikon P950 ($799 new) - good because it's relatively light, but not acceptable for ...
  • Best Buy has them on sale for something like $699 new and $560 open box (if you are interested.
  • I had an FZ300 and my sister has one now. Really good bang for the buck. Very nice to be able to zoom out to 600mm equivalent at F/2.8.  I used mine to take pictures at the US Olympic Track and ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry DSC03423A
    About 4 blocks from my house on a well lit bush beside a residential street, a hummingbird perched. He changed colors as pedestrians passed. I sat in my car across the street and set my RX10 IV to 10 FPS burst mode.
    Placed 74th in the challenge. About 4 blocks from my house on a well lit bush beside a residential street, a hummingbird perched. He changed colors as pedestrians passed. I sat in my car across the street and set my RX10 IV to 10 FPS burst mode.
  • I had lots of fun with my Casio FH20 - huge zoom range for the time and 30 FPS at 8 megapixels. I was interested In outdoor sports photography, so it was ideal for me.
  • I have the Sony RX10 IV. It weighs about the same as the P950. For a camera with even a one inch sensor to zoom from 24 to 3000, it would be too big for the average person to lift. Even a 1/1.7"...

  • I think I can see your point. If you want top quality images, this camera may not be the best choice. However, I still have my P1000 and I am happy with it. I was also happy with the P900 and the...

  • I believe the sensor on the F828 was 2/3”, almost twice as big as on this camera.

  • I don't think that many (if any) of the Walmart brick and mortar stores have P950's for sale. Those stores tend to stock much cheaper and smaller point and shoots. There may be some available...

  • I may be wrong, but I wonder if you didn't see the P1000 instead. The P950 didn't really hit the shelves in camera stores in the US till February. What was available before then that was gigantic...

  • I had 3 Casios. They were my favorites because they could take so many pictures so fast. I was interested in sports photography. I could analyze a baseball swing or show my dad a breakdown of his...

  • I thought they got bought by somebody and were continuing although with fewer staff.
  • I like some of the cool features that the FZ1000 II has like the ability to select and combine images from a burst into a single image. I like track and field. With this camera you can combine...

  • For me, it's a fun camera. It will not compete with DSLR's or MFT cameras with good lenses at lower zoom ranges. However, in the right light, it will get you some shots that you wouldn't get...

  • Replied in Hummingbirds?
    Your max shutter speed is in some way dictated by how much light you have. I am from Seattle, not the brightest place for about 6 months a year.  I was able to get decent shots of hummingbirds ...
  • I had the P900. Now I have the P1000. There are more differences than just the RAW and 4K capability. For me, the image quality is very similar, but I think the P1000 is slightly sharper at...

  • I had the P900 for 4 years and enjoyed it a lot. However, I sold it and bought the P1000. The RAW is nice. I don't care that much about the 4K video. However, for me the biggest upgrade has been...

  • I have seen mixed reviews of the Tamron 18-400mm. Some say it's great. Others complain about purple fringing and distortion.  CNET liked it.  I have a Nikon D7500 (on sale refurbished recently for ...
  • Popular smartphone companies must have a lot more money dedicated to research, but I wonder if camera companies cannot do more with computational photography themselves to enhance their zooms and ...
