In a rare act of me being serious for just a moment....., how come two cameras Jim??
Decided I'd been spoiling you all too much and wanted to make you all go cold turkey for a while
Well for me I've been wanting something "a bit better - larger sensor - with RAW available" that the TZ for a while and suspected that if I can live with a "puny zoom" the LX5 or XZ-1 might well be the ticket for now and when both came up together it gave me the chance to try both side by side and choose one
Fair enough then mate. So you're leaving the TZ ranks then?
Probably - depends on how I get on with these two to an extent - still suspect I will miss the extra zoom on occasion....... but look on the bright side - at least my head won't constantly smell of sh!t
Working fine at the moment feels really solid, just really using the auto and EXR modes at the moment to get used to it but taking it everywhere with me so using it a lot more than the DSLR.
If I'm honest though cant see much of a difference between this and the Oly XZ1 other than maybe the super macro is a little easier to use and you have 49 AF points when using in AF and S modes.Not seen the orbs yet but I do little night time photography and if I did I would take the Panny G3 with me anyway.
Surprised you have purchased 2 cameras Jim as were you not trying to get 25p more for your photoshop elements the other night!! Typical Scotsman!!!
See above for explanation - hoping not to have 3 compacts for very long
...and it was all those saved 25p's that paid for them - though that extra 25p was really just to make a point
Glad you're enjoying your X10
Good point mate, ha ha. Is it early next week when you get them then?
Hoping to get the LX5 on Monday if I can sort out a pick up in Glasgow - and hopefully the XZ-1 by middle of the week
Probably won't try to sell the TZ for a week or so - just in case
Err, I'm snitching.....Jim's commenting on the comp thread......
Pah! - what do I care
The truth is that those shots weren't "from this week", were they, Alowishus? .... They were from your back catalogue, and simply posted this week.
LOL, nice one Cal!
Oh, I see! Now that you've "handed in your notice", you think that you can do what you like. Well you can't. As long as you still own the TZ, you are bound by the rules ... (Your own rules!)
C'mon, get that post down, before "The Committee" has to impose sanctions, ...
Oh, what a lovely 3 hours I've just spent taking photos... glorious ... unfortunately, I can't even view them yet.
And ... I don't even have to endure another frigging red wine and snuggle up film session tonight, as we're heading out to the Indian for dinner with friends! :arty:
STILL can't read EXIF eh ?
...all taken on Wednesday Night
Party Pooper !
Samaritans in town again are they ?
Thanks Jim...should post it here really so the hard of thinking can see it....
I was pleased that the background came out as it was....very bright sun blitzed everything out nicely and i left the exposure just a tad over done to make it more effective
Are you sure that you did that on purpose, Gazza?
Yes... I did so there. Took about a dozen or some with different exposures but liked that one the best as the vase was a reflective, frosted glass one and the best result was a fairly slow exposure.....
OK, OK, I believe you ...................................
Well...theres a first....
