kx and DA* 21 Ltd / Optio W80
Photo Location: Garden 
Posted By: tessfully, 05-05-2012, 09:37 AM

I was taking some photos for a challenge and came away with these two... one from my point and shoot and the other using the Kx and the DA* 21 LTD.

I am wondering if you can see a lot of difference between the two images? The wind was blowing so neither are perfectly sharp, and one was taken about an hour later in the morning. But without looking at the data is it obvious which one was taken with which camera?

The first appears to have better resolution, but both are lovely shots of some lovely blooms. Either one is fully acceptable ...for my eyes.
I often find that I am just as well pleased. or sometimes more so, with what I get from my little "Toy" (as Otis calls it) X10 as what I get from my K5. Photographers are a picky bunch.......often exacting and demanding, but the target audience of "average" viewers is nothing like so particular in my findings. Old Granny would love either of those shots equally......we know she would!

Best Regards!

Both the pics look good but my guess is the p&s is the 2nd shot but I've been known to be wrong---once.--charliezap

Both look great. Excellent color and detail. Although I do like the 2nd one best.

#2 is the Kx + DA21, I am pretty sure, even looking at the pics on a netbook screen.
