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...

I'm a linux user (Mint) and I've been using UFraw for years (version 0.19.2), but it does not have WB presets for my XZ-2 I've been getting by "okay" (using camera WB, auto WB or manual), but it would be nice to be able to choose from a drop-down of XZ-2 WB presets. There are newer versions of UFraw for Ubuntu (or a "ppa", whatever that is), but I don't know if that will include the XZ-2 WB preset. DarkTable has preset for XZ-1, but not 2. Can anyone recommend a linux friendly raw editor that...

I need to upgrade from my worn out Olympus XZ1. I have narrowed it down to Canon G7X and Canon G16. It's a choice between image quality and ease of manual controls. Any guidance welcome. Does G7X screen display exposure adjustment as it is applied? Main camera is Canon 60D,

I am not sure if anyone can answer this, as its a pretty specific question, but maybe someone can advise. I have a Olympus XZ1 that I kinda got given. I carry it around with me most of the time in case I see something interesting. Its pretty good, I don't mind it, but the menu system sucks IMO. The pictures are pretty good for what it is. The low light ability of the Olympus frustrates me, despite it being 1.8... The ISO handling to me anyway, is pretty ordinary. I shoot in Raw and try and...
