[QUOTE]\nIn message <432cdfcb$[email][/email]>,\n\n\n\nCan you give an example of what you're talking about?\n\nYou keep making comments like this, but you fail to produce examples or\neven convincing logic.[/QUOTE]\n\nOne of the annoying things about your questioning John is your\ninsistence on evidence for everything you can't comprehend, rather than\naccept the fact that maybe someone other than you actually takes photos\nwith a variety of cameras and knows which one to use in which\ncircumstance to obtain the best results rather than intimately\nunderstand the whole (boring) spectrum of electronic imaging.\n\nI'm a Photographer, not a technologist. My assessment of a camera's\nvalue is based only on how good a picture it takes. I couldn't care less\nif I tried, whether it used a 4/3 sensor or a 35mm size sensor. If a\ncamera can be used for something and it's better for that use than\nanother, I'll use it.\n\n[URL]http://www.technoaussie.com/gallery/FZ20-Pics[/URL]\n\nNone of these pictures could have been taken with a 20D at the ISO\nsettings of the Panasonic and the resulting images, still have been\nsharp. I know because I tried. The mirror shudder of a 20D almost\nguarantees you can't get a sharp picture under 1/125th shutter speed at\nany ISO setting when it's got an f2.8 lens on it.\n\nFrom where I stand, that makes the Panasonic a better low light camera\nthan the 20D. Just try and take a picture with a 20D at 1/15th shutter\nspeed while hand holding the camera... Don't bother what lens you use,\njust make sure it's a f2.8 like the Leica on the Panasonic is.\n\nSome may argue that the FZ can do this because it has an image\nstabilizer. Big deal. It came built in to the camera. Others might claim\nusing ISO 1600 with the 20D will result in a sharp image. So what?\nThat's subscribing to the same theory I've just offered...\n\nThe Panasonic has no shutter vibrations. It has no mirror slap. It can\ntake sharp pictures at ridiculously slow shutter speeds so it doesn't\nneed to use a high ISO to do this. The two cameras are so different they\ncan only be judged when allowed to work at their own best settings for a\ngiven scene.\n\nNothing about the specifications of these two cameras can be validly\ncompared to each other unless you let the finished photograph be the\npoint of judgment... And isn't that what Photography is all about?
