    Thanks for the responses. I've had bad experiences with a couple of these dealers, and heard of plenty more, and didn't want to try any of them again. I'm glad to know that some of them are...
  2. Colletive guilt-- online NYC-based camera dealers

    I've heard so many horror stories about 47th St Photo, 86th St Photo, Adorama, Abe's of Maine ("Maine" here meaning New York), and all the rest, the I've come to think that these dealers are all...

    Couldn't distinguish 10x (380) from 12x (430)

    I chose a Fuji s5200 over the Canon S2/S3, wanting Fuji's low-light performance. (Not up to the F10, but with some of the Fuji advantage.) But I didn't want to lose the greater zoom. (Canon sells 12x...

    I haven't seen Steve's F10 review but this model has a fanatical following, and I've seen many beautiful shots taken with it, which are hard to believe were done with a compact. I'm a recent Fuji...

    In low light you need all the ISO *and* aperture that you can get, and Fuji is the one for ISO. I have the 5200 and it works great in auto mode. Plus, its "natural light" mode is pretty much the same...

    Or other Fuji's-- the legendary F10/11/30 series, or the s5200 if you need a longer zoom. They're the ones for low light.

    I understand the limitations, which is why I said "as much as possible". All I can tell you is that the person in question can be hard to please.

    In the cameras that were suggested, I'm interested in what type of controls these are. Someone I know wants not only manual control but, as much as possible, traditional rings and dials to do it,...

    Even if you've done the major tourist sites, you may have missed some *minor* tourist sites-- the ones that even Londoners may not have seen. Two that we found interesting were a bombed-out church...

    It appears that you're trying to take a picture of mainly this car-- and that part is quite good. One obvious improvement would be to put it in front of a different background-- either unnoticeable...

    You thought the add-on was a waste of money, but I'd like some details. Was it the Fuji one, or aftermarket? Was the resulting optical quality unsatisfactory?
  13. Wide-angle attachments for zooms: any good?

    I have a Finepix 5200 and was going to live with its range of focal lengths. (Beyond those limits I figured I should get more ambitious gear.) But I'm thinking of adding a wide-angle attachment...

    The Konica Minolta A200 is a bit above your budget but it's a great camera with a nice little wireless remote. I don't know how available it is now that KM is ceasing.

    Fuji 5200 bagged

    I should thank the person who started this thread, and those who replied, because I actually went and bought a Fuji 5200. I had intended to just *look* at it, but they had a floor model, barely...

    Well, I realize about compromises and getting the camera's feel. Compromise gets complex because three people will use this, all of us fairly casual but wanting to get nice results. I like nature and...

    Fuji 5200 vs Powershot s3

    You got me interested in the Fuji 5200, which has ISO 1600. The upcoming Powershot s3, which was my tentative choice, has a nominal max of 800, but people seem to assume that 200 or 400 will be the...

    Yes, of course. Something confused me but now I see-- the fast camera reaches the same limit at 3200 that the slow camera reaches at 200. The KM 5D at f/2.8 (or your 1.7) does seem one of the fastest...

    You say:
    "ISO3200 noise is about the same level to my compacts at ISO200"

    I'm not in a position to test this issue, though I'd better start digging in the reviews. I'm only going on numbers-- if...

    Konica Minolta for low light?

    I've been investigating the same question, and I reached a different conclusion, since Fuji lacks antishake. I've started to think the best brand for low light is Konica Minolta. (Which is...
