    Help! ''Off-photography period' :-(

    Vince, i currently feel a bit "off" as well. for me, the change in weather (getting so cold!) plus my return to college to finish another degree has really put a major cramp in my regular habits, including photography. but- that said- those photos you recently posted (11/07/11 i think?) are...

    Software Topaz will soon have a competitor to Nik Silver Effects Pro (SEP2).

    I will purchase this too. I have only briefly used NIK's SEP2 trial version and while i liked the end results, it's a little steep for me right now -- this came at the perfect time! Thank you for posting the link, I'll be sure to post a few :)

    Fuji f550 Vs XZ-1 Vs G3 - with the X10 in mind

    thanks andy! i have an XZ-1 and even though i *just* got it, the x10 looks pretty tasty in a very tiny package... i am glad to see this comparison though- think i'll stop daydreaming and save money for something else, like a trip to somewhere exotic to photograph with the XZ-1 :wink:

    We didn't think we would get off so easily- I live about two blocks from the atlantic ocean in a flood-prone area... we packed up everything we couldn't live without and I stayed over at work this weekend at the hospital, Rob and Bindi stayed with a friend further inland - but because the storm...

    Andy, first of all, THANK YOU! this was with my XZ-1, and then some saturation and sharpening adjustment in aperture... the black and white and sepia were done in Silver Efex Pro 2, i'm still learning my way around that one so i've been fiddling around with the presets a bit. 1/40 f1.8 ISO...

    Compact XZ-1 digital zoom?

    Nevermind! I just figured it out- I shoot in RAW format; Digital zoom can NOT be selected unless you are working in JPEG. As soon as I switched the format to "LF" (large/fine JPEG) I was able to go into the menu and turn digital zoom "ON." Makes perfect sense, of course, but Olympus doesn't...

    Compact XZ-1 digital zoom?

    I can't seem to access the digital zoom function- it's greyed out on the menu and I can't figure out how to un-grey it - anyone come across this issue? The manual says you can not access digital zoom if super-macro is selected, but even in AF or MF I still can't seem to access it. help!

    Olympus XZ-1 image thread

    a few XZ-1 shots from our recent trip to Provincetown, MA DEFINITELY appreciated the compact size of this camera on our trip! barely even knew it was there, but when i needed it, it was quick on the draw and manual adjustments were very simple and straightforward.

    Olympus Blown away by XZ-1 image quality....may have to get one!

    i must be missing something really obvious w/ XZ-1 ...I can't seem to turn ON digital zoom- it's grayed out in the menu. Granted I don't think I really WANT digital zoom turned on... but why can't I even get to the on/off submenu? Is there some setting I have set that is preventing me from...

    well, i can tell you what i HAVENT been up to: taking photographs!! :smile: i decided to buy an XZ-1 - it's really only marginally larger than the sony cybershot i was using prior to buying the EPL1, and it has the hotshoe so i can still use my EVF2, and probably the same batteries too? i...

    Someone on Mu43 also recommended the Olympus XZ-1, which is super-appealing for a number of reasons! Any thoughts on that one or the other two would be greatly appreciated!

    In short: I always think of that saying "the best camera is the one you have with you" - and over the last 6 months, I have rarely had my EPL1 with me, or I've had it with me and just felt it too cumbersome/slow/unwieldy for the moment at hand - either the entire outing became "Nicole's...
