My XZ-1 arrived:


first test pix




Have a question, is it worthwhile shooting RAW with this camera? All these were using
largest file JPEG, haven't loaded the CD to process RAW files.
Nice shots

I was shooting RAW when I first got the camera, then switched to jpg for something and really, theres not much that I could do to make the shots better, so I don't do RAW anymore. Olympus jpgs and colour are just gorgeous.

Sue, thanks, for everyday running around, I think I'll stick with JPEG. Write times would be faster, too.

I've done much the same with my Fuji X100 and GRD3. Especially the GRD3 which only does RAW+JPG or JPG. Not RAW alone. That said, there arent many other cameras I would trust just with JPG.

Sue, thanks, and for the news the GRD V may have an 1" sensor.

Of course, since I said, shoot jpg, I've just been reading in seriouscompacts.com and they all say you must shoot RAW to get the best out of the XZ. I guess its a matter of YMMV.
