I don't have a lot of time for photography, but a few of you seemed vaguely interested in seeing what I do with this camera. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. If anyone else has some shots or experiences....feel free to add them to this thread. A super brief "user experience" review is that the camera is nice and chunky with a deep grip. If someone wants a small superzoom, this isn't the one. It's also appreciably lighter than a DSLR with a big lens on it (probably roughly comparable to a DSLR with a decent kit zoom attached though this is a guess). I've decided to shoo this camera in RAW only because I want to squeeze every drop of performance out of this small sensor. No one will confuse the IQ with any decent camera with a prime lens. Early indications are that it compares pretty well with any camera with a zoom lens (if you factor in sensor and lens efficiencies, sizes, handicaps, etc.). Here's a b/w (because I couldn't seem to get the color right......more on that later). This is wide open at full zoom......

DSCF7077 by Luke Lavin, on Flickr Here's a very brief video I captured at full zoom.....I think the video quality is quite good (for what it is), but obviously a steady shot at 1000mm is not so easy....turn the volume way up to hear the chattering of the chippy...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ld7-Snl_SuY&feature=youtu.be Here's one in super challenging harsh light.... Not APS-C by a long shot, but a lot better than i expected for a tiny sensor cam..... a walk through the woods by Luke Lavin, on Flickr Macro mode is much appreciated...... DSCF7034 by Luke Lavin, on Flickr I'll share more as time permits. But my initial impressions are about what I expected. I paid $350 and wanted something to cover all uses. I didn't expect it to exceed at anything, but to be a good all-rounder. I think it may be a good compromise.
