    Nice pictures. But no surprise -- better P&S cameras can produce superb
    images. But then pretty much any decent camera can produce superb
    images. What matters is the photographer, not the camera. Perhaps
    that's why inexperienced DSLR owners try to make such a big issue of
    their cameras? ;)

    The wobbling lens isn't a real issue -- the sensor wobbles along as part
    of the lens module.

  3. It's been said before and it's worth saying again....

    It's just simply inexperienced "P'n'S Envy".

    I find it amusing that you feel the need to put down an entire group of
    owners with every post. Why are you so insecure?

    The DSLR fools can dish it out, but they can't take it, eh?

  7. If you ever get the first link going make sure you have your sunglasses
    on. The whites are pretty bright.


    Second link has a hot blonde and some guy pretending he is in cool runnings.

    I would never admit to taking that pic in the first link. To put it mildly,
    I think it sucks.

    I think that was taken near Margie's House of Pain.

    Also, if memory serves the captains-cabin pic was posted by D-Mac a
    year or two ago. At that time he claimed it was a stitched pano.

  10. Why must this group be so competitive? It used to be the "film
    forever" folks vs the "digital is the only way to go" folks. Now it
    is DSLR vs P & S! Sort of leaves rangefinder folks out in the cold,
    though.

    BTW, we own both a DSLR and a digital P & S.

    Despite the troll's claims that it was taken with an Olympus C670...

    ....and despite him trying to wipe the EXIF data on 15 Nov 07...

    ....the idiot didn't cover up all his digital footsteps.

    It was actually taken with his Panasonic.

    Those links have worked every time I've tried them. Using a reliable
    Internet connection are you? Maybe you should ask for your money back.

    A wee bit insecure and defensive are we? ;)

    It comes from childish mine-is-better bragging by DSLR advocates who
    feel the need to feed their egos by putting down non-DSLRs and those who
    use them at every opportunity, like wearing a (fake) Rolex to be more
    cool.

    They'll criticize any non-DSLR image, even when actually not; i.e.,
    ringers taken with DSLR and faked as having been taken with non-DSLR (to
    expose their silliness for what it is). ;)
    What matters is not what you have, but what you do with it.

    Just because you think it was taken with a P&S.
    Thanks for proving my point. ;)

    That's a serious charge, but hard to take seriously given without
    anything concrete to back it up.

    You do realise there's no such animal as an Olympus C670?
    You actually have an image from an Olympus 760UZ and it was x10 zoom, not
    x12.

    I had the similar (same sensor, same lens) but earlier C750UZ and yes it
    could turn out a very nice image, still can in fact, but I see the same
    problems (blue fringing, blown out highlights) in your image that made me
    decide to get a DSLR last year as I wanted (and got) better quality. There
    are better P&S cameras around now though that make the IQ comparison a
    closer thing in good light anyway.

    I'm sorry, but to reveal the specifics in public would merely inform
    the troll as to how he slipped up, which would then allow him to make
    a better forgery the next time.

    If you have the tools, ability and interest, simply go do the
    forensics yourself.
