Was it the colors that you didn't care for, Keith? Or something else?
oh you HAD to ask didnt youOriginally Posted by Beccaberry, post: 57561
it was a few years ago but I recall it being an overall feeling that the shot as taken was indistinct, almost blurry but not.
It was especially bad at low light shots despite the image stabliser which makes you think the shots were just badly held, camera shake but I tried all sorts. Camera on desk etc and it just didnt deliver.
In fact I still have the camera, I didnt even want to ebay it because I was sure the next person would complain to me about it and I wouldnt really know what to say.
I bought a sony super-zoom next which got every shot instantly which had failed on the lumix :/
Was it the camera or me? well let's call it an incompatibility between the two ;) and an over-critical owner. Other people may not have noticed/cared but I'm hyper critical of my own stuff and the lumix just didnt deliver
Can understand exactly what you mean....over the years my F10 has become....sluggish....shots it used to capture without hesitation have become hazy, indistinguishable, just over all "blah"....probably from being dropped repeatedly by my children....anyway, before it "quit" I'd already decided it need to be replaced...
Ok...so....off to Circuit City later to see what else I can find :D
My daughter has been pretty tough in her handling, and the thing works like a champ. DSIL's new one with the Leica lens is very nice. My big concern with all of these point in shoots is the viewfinder (or lack of one) that is why I love the style of my Fuji S5000 and the newer ones with greater resolution. I am so old school...like an old man really..I rely on the look through viewfinder. I guess people get used to the screen viewfinder but find it harder to compose my pictures.
