    Hey I'm a biochemist!

    But anyway, the Casio Ex-F1 shoots up to 1200 fps video, so you can really see what's going on at all stages. It sounds like the perfect camera for your work.

    I'm not an expert (as a matter of fact, I'm a P&S guy myself), but it sounds like an entry level DSLR might be a perfect fit for you. Entry level DSLR's like the Canon Rebel XTi or XSi have great...

    Thanks to everyone! The photo is nothing more than a family photo of a dog that I'm enlarging, so I don't have to sell it.
  5. How large can I make a 6 megapixel photo?

    I want to take a picture with a Canon S3, and blow it up to 20x30. Is that possible? The photo will be in excellent light, will be at the full 6 megapixel resolution, and the quality will be at the...

    My dad owns an S3, and my grandfather owns an S5. . .I think ISO performance peaked at the S3.....

    I bought my father a Canon S3 for father's day last year, and when we went to an airshow a few weeks later, he was able to take pictures of helicopters. He was able to take pictures with the rotors...

    Even though this thing is 1000 bucks, I honestly think it's TOTALLY worth the money!!! If it can take 60 pictures at the full 6 megapixel setting in one second, think how sensitive the sensor must...

    The reason I chose to get my dad an S3 (which isn't even as good as the S5) is that it has ultra-zoom capabilities (like you mentioned) without having to buy an incredibly expensive lens. It also...

    You mean preferable to you, anyway. I'd perfer the EVF was long as it was full frame. The optical view finder would do any good unless you weren't zoomed at all.

    With the S3, once you hit the 1GB/9 minute file size limit, recording stops. However, you can record as many 1GB movies as your memory card will allow. The S5 allows movies upto 4GB, and if you...

    I suppose it depends on the person. I have a humming-bird feeder in my back-yard, and I'd love to keep a 1/1600th of a second shot at 1600 ISO, even if it is a tad noisy. My dad's S3 isn't the best...

    Go to a camera store and try out the cameras. Hold them in your hands to see if they're comfortable, and to see if they buttons are placed in a place convienent to you. I notice you live in Walnut...
  17. Are there any good video compression programs for the S3 and A640?

    The video taken by these cameras is fantastic (my dad has an S3 and my step-mom has an A640) but the file sizes are pretty big. My dad has quick-time Pro, but we can't figure out how to compress...

    That's the same one I bought when I got my dad his S3. He's never had any problems with it at all.

    That link helped a lot. I was playing around with the shutter-speed on my dad's S3 over the weekend, and couldn't figure out why when I put the shutter speed at 1/640th of a second I got a dark-ish...

    I think you'd be happy going with the Canon S3, the Sony H5, or the Fuji 6000. They are all great point-and-shoot cameras with good auto-modes, that let you go fully automatic if you want. They all...

    Excellent. I know that if I were to get that 18-200mm lens I wouldn't get the same photo quality I would with a lens that was 18-36mm, and another that was 50-300mm, but like I said before, my...

    So, fionndruinne, let me see if I get this DSLR lens thing right: if I buy a 18-55mm lens, I will have about a 3x zoom, with 18mm being my starting 'point'. If I get a 55-300mm zoom lens, the...

    I had very similar concerns, but I was put to ease by the knowledge that as long as your shutter speed is reasonably fast, you'll get no blur at all. The Fuji 6000fd is such an appealing camera...

    I see. Well, looks like I won't be any quicker than the 1/1000th shutter speed. But I really think that'll be quick enough.

    As for what I'll be taking a picture(s) of: pets, both mine and...

    Well, I'd be using it outdoors around noon time, so I assume that's enough light to really capture a 1/1600th shot well enough. Would I be better off looking at something like the Rebel XTi or...
