"overjoyed ... "

so overjoyed by this "new toy" that I'm posting these pics which I'm only supposed to post at least three weeks later...
never thought 'image stabilization' could be so effective, 'dynamic range' such amazing... and have never expected a "consumer dc" to be this capable and such great fun on the street... it's capturing so effectively what I see and feel!:-)

... look forward to posting more in the coming weeks.

I'm curious Hugo as to what you're new 'consumer dc' is??? I haven't seen you so excited in ages...!!!

Hi Ian,

What a nice surprise to see you stopping by!:-) How are you my friend?

"Excited?" Yes, I certainly am... so excited that I have been shooting everything everywhere for more than a week and don't care ending up with only so so snapshots... just like I started this photography thing with the little F10 three years ago!

The real great fun is: I seem to be able to capture almost anything, even in the most difficult lighting situations, thanks to the amazing 'dynamic range' and the wonderful IS system. Last but not the least, the flippable LCD monitor is just lovely......

I'm late and have to go now. Catch you later.:-)

Take care,

Oops... forgot to mention: it isn't mine; but I enjoy and treasure very very much this great privilege to play with this powerful photo taking machine... one of the most powerful non-dslr, I dare say!:-)

All the best,

Hi Hugo!

Like Ian Smith I'm very curious to find out which camera it is that's got you so sounds wonderful!

Best wishes,

Hi Ian,

Yes, it's a pretty wonderful machine. So capable and versatile, yet so easy to use... though the overall image quality isn't exactly comparable to that of a good dSLR, it's offering an unsurpassed dynamic range in the league of so-called "consumer digital cameras".

I wish I could tell you more...

Catch you later.:-)

Hi Hugo,

Nice demonstration under lighting conditions which I consider important (low light) and appreciate your throwing in a daylight shot or two for good measure. How do you find the size/weight as compared to your S5?

Best regards,

Hi Hugo, I hope you get permission to reveal all on the FTF soon - there's a lot of speculation and disbelief in this camera's spec's from what I've read. Your samples look very promising IMO.

I've finally had a little bit of spare time this weekend, and posted my first shots on the FTF since last summer. Nothing special, just a few from a walk along the River Thames.

Take care,

Mike: Thanks for stopping by!!:-) It's substantially lighter and smaller than the s5... but its size and weight is similar to that of an entry level dSLR, say, the D40. Anyhow, it feels very nice and "balanced"...

Ian: I'm truly happy with what this camera is offering. Noise level is slightly higher than that of the F30, yet its 'dynamic range' is absolutely superior. FYI, it retained even more details in the highlights areas than an entry level dSLR that I've compared side by side! I've seen your pics on the FTF - they've made me envy your skills and artistic eye!:-)

Take care and see you later!
