I used to think my Lumix TZ1 10x zoom was pretty awesome, but 60x? I can't even imagine! You're getting some nice images from your superzooms Kyteflyer

Nice shot from the very reliable iPhone, Paul! I still use my 5S for walkabout shots if I see something i want.

Thanks for your kind words re the shots with the P610. Its a far more capable camera than I originally gave it credit for. No RAW put me off for about a year, but then... I decided it didnt matter.

Motorola G if you hack it to turn off the noise reduction or rather to say painting "effect" it can produce sharp pictures. It makes me wonder why manufacturers cripple theirs products by "bad" settings..

I like that one of the board going out over the pond! It reminds me of an old swimming hole we went to when I was a kid. Cottonmouths waited all around the edges for the "first one in".

Nice shots, I like them all!

Regards!

Love the soft lovely colors in that one, a very nice composition too!

What Toy cameras can do is amazing......get you a shot in focus in total darkness, and using the onboard flash works fairly well too!

Just a quick snap as I was passing them by on the way out the back door to my shop.

X20


You don't get much detail on such a huge crop, but at least you get something as a reference!



Even my K5IIs will not get me a shot in the total darkness. The assist light is pretty decent on the little X20!

Regards!
