What has happened to cameras since xmas?
Does anyone wish they had gone for X camera instead of the Y camera they purchased?
Has anyone here used the Leica?
There were a few good things about those CDs though. First and foremost the ability to be able to shoot loads of pictures without the need of having to download the pics to a computer or an HD-based device. Also, the CDs serve as a kind of digital 'negative', since they can be stored straight off the camera. Once finalised they can be read by any CD drive.
Another great feature of the CD400 was the ability to shoot video clips for almost 5 mins (depending on the size of the mini CD).
But having said all that, I also agree that the G3 is very nice! :-)
I'd say stick with Nikon and Olympus. You can't beat their quality.
One of Japanese Mobile phone provider started shipping mobile phones with 1.3M pixel camera. Digital cameras may become obsolete sooner than I thought.
LoL! I think it will be a long time before we see people taking their holiday snaps with a phone. And I doubt we'll ever see 'proper' photographers using them.
Designers are always harking on about 'convergence' but in reality in never quite meets expectation. They always compromise on functionality to squeeze things into the form factor.
Plus you end up with a device that is so multi-functional that most consumers can't work it.
Putting it another way: Loads of phones have extensive organiser functions on them - but the vast majority of people would rather use a palmtop or even a paper diary.
Tigger, you asked about giving a flash a booost?
They sell remote flashes that can be added for pretty cheap, I think around 20-30US. They have a light sensor on them and when your main flash pops they go with it. Worth checking out.
Of course there are many expensive remote flash options as well, but you may just want to try one of the cheapies and see how it works.
As far as the Nikon D-100, yeah I want one of those. I cannot wait until the Digital SLR prices go down to that of the film camera...well or under 1000 dollars.
I bought a Sony DSC-F717 (5.24MP - 5x optical Zeiss lens) this past February. I cannot say enough good things about this camera.
Very strong reason for this camera: it's lens.
The BEST available, and even in comparison to much more expensive SLR's.
