    Actually Rhys, I've come to regard my iPhone as something more than a mere "telephone." I'll give you an example:

    The other day I was reading a book on my Kindle reader (a downloaded app for the...
  2. It isn't either-or, Rhys...

    With the iPhone, you get to pay the bill AND have the iPhone. In fact, you have to pay the bill! :cool:
  3. Ready for some iPhone 3GS photos?

    Here are a few:

    Check out the new Panasonic FZ35, which has HD movie recording at 1080p, allows zooming during movie taking, and has a great image stabilizer, supposedly improved over their previous versions, which...
  5. If you're limited to one lens...

    I'd go with the 18-55, which translates out to 27-82, a good "basic" range for anywhere from scenery to portraits.

    And HI, Sarah Joyce! LTNS!

    They do it all the time in Road & Track, with a lot more viewers than this site enjoys. If you've ever looked at one of their summaries, they provide a chart of different criteria by which various...

    I found it very useful!

    Nice job, Jeff! Really living up to the "Resource" mantra here. The only thing I missed was some kind of quantitative rating system, you know, like when they rate Ferraris vs. Porsches in Road &...

    It depends on how you will use the output image. If you're submitting photos to a print publisher, they'll generally ask for 300 dpi, so they can accommodate the necessary lithographic screens for...

    You can call it "terror" or "fear," and you can say that terrorists have imposed a new "reality" on our society, but there's a whole politics of fear from which many in power have benefited ever...

    It could be Public Paranoia?

    These days, there is so much fear around that residents may suspect anyone who's shooting photos in the neighborhood of having some criminal intent. So the police may be catching it from complaining...

    Have you seen Jeff's ZS-3 review?

    That's the Panasonic camera that is marketed in the U.S., I think, as the DMC-TZ7. His review of it is here. The pricing looks a little higher than your target, but for the kind of work you're doing,...

    I agree with Beowulff. The proof is in the image quality, whether it suffers or not from the apparent play in the barrel. If it doesn't seem to have hurt the IQ, then live with it. It's an old...

    Check out Jeff's reviews?

    Here's Jeff's review of the ZS-3, and here's his review of the TZ3. He conducts the identical noise analysis tests on both, so it's pretty easy to compare for yourself.:)

    You might take a look at the Panasonic DMC-G1? It's an "EVIL" camera (Electronic Viewfinder, Interchangeable Lens) with a 12MP sensor (4000 X 3000) which MIGHT be enough for your resolution needs....

    Because of the amplifying circuitry built into each sensing site, the CMOS sensor site devotes a smaller fraction of its area to gathering light than does the CCD sensor site. For P&S cameras with...

    Strange blurriness?

    I downloaded one of your photos to check the EXIF data, and as I suspected, you were shooting at f2.8, pretty close to the maximum aperture of f2.6, according to the EXIF. That "strange blurriness"...

    Question for Jeff re: Casio FH-20 review?

    Jeff:

    When you were shooting the high-speed burst shots with this camera, were you seeing any flicker or delays in the EVF or LCD that made it difficult to track a moving target?
  24. Questions on RAW developers and "wideangle?"
