    Panasonic µ4/3 noise & noise reduction

    So I was reading the noise page of a review of the Sony SLT-A55 on DigitalCameraInfo.com, and came across a pair of interesting charts. The second shows how badly the DMC-G2 (my camera) fares against the competition in terms of image noise (with in-camera noise reduction applied): It's...

    Canon from the tunnel of time

    túnel do tempo The Canon SD500 was the third or fourth digital camera I owned, but it was the first one to take pix that I still like today. This photo, from the summer of 2006, shows how absolute physical separation can actually achieve bokeh even with a tiny lens and a tinier sensor...

    Canon Debunked rumor: Canon EIS 60

    I believe this rumor has been debunked. I'm not sure if this is the right forum (not really a DSLR) or even if this is interesting to the Serious Compacts community. If not, moderators please move or delete this thread. If this is true, it could really shake up the mirrorless industry! Canon...

    Show One Color

    There's a thread like this over at µ4/3, but none of my one-color images are taken with the new cameras. This one was taken with the S90, fully zoomed in, 1/80 f/4.9 ISO 125. (I obviously had it on full auto mode!) Shot in raw, converted to JPG in LR3, all values defaulted to "as shot". (I...

    josé (arpoador) in san francisco

    Hi folks - I once read a really inspiring post about owning up to your real identity while on the Web. My (faltering?) memory attributes it to Amin on mu-43, but I may be wrong. In any event, my name is José Madeira Garcia, originally from Rio de Janeiro, currently living in San...
