    Minolta and Panasonic
    Kodak easy share is crap
    Powershots have resolution issues.
    Go the Panasonic with no doubt. The Minolta is pretty good too.

    Ahh. The militant enforcer, eh?
    And when was the last time you posted off topic to a group, Alan?
    While I'm on it... Your Sig is outside polite limits too.
    I'm sure you know the one about glass houses and stones.

  5. Alan is right.

    This is a dSLR News Group. Those were digital but not SLR cameras.

    "YOU" should have pointed that out in your reply and if you wanted to, then answer the
    question.

    So David...
    Does not the charter of this group seek to avoid/prevent/discourage top
    posting?
    Did you not break the charter yourself just now?
    Perhaps I see the stupidity of having a set of guidelines (rules?) in the
    form of a Charter which are only ever used or evoked by people when *they*
    feel like it. Those same people - which you can now class yourself as one -
    turn a blind eye to their own activities which are outside the charter
    whenever it suits them. What does that make you, David?

  7. I always post On Topic. Replies in a thread may go Off Topic.
    I almost always Top Post. It is my preference and *I will continue* to do so.

    The rest of my replies are inline...

    | So David...
    | Does not the charter of this group seek to avoid/prevent/discourage top
    | posting?

    No. It discourages >80 chars/line and more than 4 lines/sig.
    When I stated they were stringent rules. A very wise a smart man replied...
    "That part of the charter is more of a suggested practice as opposed to
    'hard rules' that are set out higher up in the charter.

    There is rarely an excuse for more than a few lines in a sig. The bit
    about 80 chars is for those who have funky readers that don't wrap
    intelligently."

    er, no, the reason we created these divided NG's was to have the right topics in
    the right place. The OP would be better served there, and we would be better
    served not to reply here with what he wants to know in order to keep this NG on
    topic.
    Oh, from time to time, but I don't make a big habit of it.
    Nothing wrong with my sig. I've kept it as compact as possible, and all of the
    links are relevant to the NG's where I typically post.
    People who live in grass houses should not stow thrones. Yes indeed, they are
    heavy those thrones.

    BTW: Don't top post, Ryadia. Pretty rude.

    Cheers,
    Alan

    You say that like it's something to be proud of. Because you've done it for
    15 years doesn't make it right, or even acceptable to the majority; it
    merely proves you know how to dig your heels in against the prevailing
    current. I'm just sayin'.

  10. I don't see there is a current.
    I see three sides to the coin and there is no right way and no wrong way.
    I will say there is a better way in some circumstances.

  18. None of the above are digital SLRs, so they are not what you
    are looking for.

    I would suggest you buy the Nikon D70 with the kit lens.
    A very good camera with a true SLR feel to it.

    Rule? Guideline.

    Big difference.

    Oh Tom....
    Some people are like little puppies. Need to be trained and have rules to be
    accepted. It's not even a guideline. AFAICT it stems from the dark old days
    of teletext when every character sent was an drain on a network. Someone
    pointed out on Sourceforge or freshmeat (can't remember which) a set of
    proposed standards for Usenet postings which adopted a lot of teletext
    guidelines.

    A lot of use of Usenet and the quasi standards adopted were from teletext.
    Using a personal sig longer than 3 lines with a separator above, added
    significant load to messages. If you really are interested in this totally
    off topic subject, do a search on Yahoo or Goggle for personal sig RFC. That
    should make your day!

    Incidentally... Alan's sig is 5 lines in total (4 plus separator). Like I
    said in my first post: Some people choose to use the "rules" when it suits
    them and deny all knowledge of them when it doesn't. That is just human
    nature. If Alan is to be the (unofficial) policeman of this group, then I
    will point out his short comings (and there are more than just his sig) when
    he gets up someone for doing something he doesn't like. Live and let live,
    Alan. And hey... When did you get the DSLR? I thought you were a film kinda
    guy.
