    First, a special thanks to entropic remnants (John Griggs) for speaking a wise word in due season. Upon reading his PM, I found myself smacking my forehead and crying out: "Of course! Color depth!" His patient explanation of binary math lead me to discover that my G12 has considerably more color depth than my FZ200. I was thinking about this early this morning when I glanced out the window and went "Holy smokes! Look at that!"

    I grabbed the G12, and the results are below. Except for the very last image, these are all straight out of camera jpgs.

    I also caught these crows on their way to a secret meeting.

    Here's the same image with a bit of romancing from DXO Optics 9


    In less than 5 minutes, it was gone. I'm now looking at a flat gray sky.

    Cheers, Jock

    The G12 does look richer I think.

    It is amazing how fast sunrise/sunset changes. The shot can come and go in a minute or less some times!
