New Panasonic Lumix ZS-Series TV Commercial
Bruce wrote: <snip> Panasonic targeted that commercial to people incapable of learning to use a DSLR, and you are the perfect victim. Exactly so.

Canon 5D II firmware update - audio bug
> Perhaps I am still not used to the idea that an SLR camera now does video and sound. I must be getting old. It's very handy, Chris, to be able to capture a snippet of video without changing camera, and, of course, with the large sensor, high ISOs, and large aperture lenses, a DSLR can capture video at... 19 Mar 2010 10:47
Has anyone ever tried...
....one of those hokey-looking bulb shutter release hose deals? You know the ones that use a pump of air to depress the shutter button. Are they legit to any degree, ie... can you get a half depression then the full? ... 26 Mar 2010 21:42

Olympus admits their micro 4/3rds focusing system is flawed
The reference this in the article about their conventional 4/3rds product. It's only about 1/3 the speed of Panasonic's (1.2 second focusing time versus 0.4 with kit lenses), which itself is close to DSLR speed.

Manual film camera trumps digital in harsh environments?
I've used entry-level Olympus DSLRs in -20 weather for hours on end. My D300 I used one night at -25C. The only problems were that the batteries got cold and the LCD got slow, but with a warm battery, everything functioned perfectly. But then Arctic or Antarctic weather is a bit worse...There are still resonances ... 2 Apr 2010 21:29

Hi all just started with a Sony A100 after years of using a compact. I will be using the camera for taking pics of the lad playing fotball amongst other things and wondered what would be the best lens for say the other side of a footy pitch? the camera came with the standard 18/70 lens and a minolta 28/100.
