Hi everyone! What would be a good compact camera for astrophotography, preferably <$1000? I currently have an Olympus XZ-1 which I've owned since 2011 and it's been great for shooting meteors, eclipses, and general starry skies. I love the manual controls and how it performs in low light settings. However since it's been a while, I thought it would be great to get something new! I don't want to get a bulky DSLR because I know I won't carry it around which means it'll just collect dust, so any...

The LCD Screen doesn't come on and both the computer connector ports on the XZ 1 no longer work. There are some photos on the camera itself which I would like to retrieve. Could you give me an idea of how I can retrieve them please. Thank you for your time. Paula
I have an XZ-1, which I haven't used much lately. Most of the time, I use my Micro 4/3 gear. However, I'd like to carry a small camera with me when cycling. This will be used mostly in good light, for static subjects. The XZ-1 looks good up to 8" x 10" prints, so in that respect it works well for me. However, the LCD isn't good enough to work in fairly strong daylight. Does it make more sense to get an option EVF for it, or to update it to something like the Panasonic ZS100? How much life...

I've been doing ample research about a good point and shoot for a beginner to take with me on my travels. Obviously, as a beginner, I prefer something user-friendly that will help me learn the basics, but I'm willing to dig deep in the manual (and interwebs) to learn. I would also like something sturdy and compact that won't fail me halfway through my trip... I've narrowed down my options to the LX5 or a Powershot S series. I was also considering the Olympus XZ-1, but I've heard that it does...
Hi there, I have been using the Olympus XZ-1 for a few years now and I love the colors of jpegs it produces. I have a very good DSLR but I keep coming back to XZ-1 because of the colors and nice jpegs. And recently I'm thinking about buying either the Olympus E-PL7 or E-PL6. there is about 25% price difference where I live so this would be important ( if they would have similar jpegs I'd probably get the PL-6) Could anyone tell me how the jpeg output looks in these two cameras? There is a...
Hello, I have not had my Sony a6000 very long and I'm just learning how to use it (and photography in general). Right now all I have is the kit lens 16-50mm but I have read that that the Sony 50mm f/1.8 is a great lens to have. I have a blog, so it seems like the 50mm lens would be good for that, but right now I am concerned about an upcoming trip to Amsterdam. Would the kit 16-50mm or 50mm f/1.8 lens be good for normal vacation photography (buildings, general scenery, landscapes, my...

Bottom Line: I'm thinking of replacing the MX-1 with a G9X. I think the 1" sensor will make up for the dimmer lens, and the pocket size will have me carrying it more, thus not relying on my iPhone as much. Downsides: Wife will be a little mad I bought another camera and it is not as beautiful as the MX-1. (this is the price for true compactness, it seems, as the Ricoh GR is also ugly) Full Story follows: Years ago, when I was more "serious" of a photographer, I shot my dSLR . (APS-C sensor, 6...
