    TX7 makes fast and beautiful panos - I think it takes ~ 100 pictures and makes one photo within some seconds.

    Re: Sony TX7

    I took my new TX7 out for a spin this weekend. Here's a few examples in P mode with a couple using the close focus macro. PP in ACR then CS4.

    Attachment 28312 Attachment 28313

    Attachment 28314 Attachment 28315

    I think I've finally found my long-sought-after goal... a true pocket camera. It can be a bit awkward to hold due to its tiny size, but it does a great job in producing the images. Definitely a keeper!

    More examples can be found on my website:

    Looks good, Simon.

    PP in ACR and CS4- the camera only outputs jpgs, right?

    Vivek,

    Thanks!

    I knew that would elicit a response.

    Yes, the TX7 is jpeg only. However, my standard PP routine, even for jpegs, is to open in ACR to adjust the histogram for the best tone range and various other adjustments. I then open the image in PS CS4 for further PP.

    For those who may be interested, I have a fairly extensive FAQ that I have put on my site in response to questions from viewers. The FAQ covers (among other topics) my Pre/Post Processing routine in greater detail.

    http://web.mac.com/simonchughes/Site...Questions.html

    WRT the TX7, while the out-of-camera jpegs can be quite good, they still require some PP to get what I look for for my images. Sony, in their infinite wisdom, have not put ANY picture type controls into this camera... no contrast, saturation, sharpness adjustments whatsoever. Not even a B&W mode, so for me, there is still the necessity for PP (which is not really an issue as this is all part of what I enjoy about image making).

    Here's a couple more:

    Quite so. It's definitely part of the process for me too, as is the enjoyment and challenge of getting the best from a "latent" image.
    These form an excellent collection of images, not so much due to the camera as to the photographer.
    I'm intrigued by the grain in DSC 00154 - added in post, or shot at high ISO? In any case it's "attractive" grain IMO and if it's due to the latter; definitely turns my head towards this camera. By the way, is the screen as wonderful as it sounds (especially out in the daylight)?

    Michael,

    Thanks for your kind words about my images.

    The grain in that particular image (on my website for those looking for it BTW) is probably more the processing than due to high ISO (it was a bright day). I think Hot has some good high ISO examples in this thread already and the camera is quite forgiving even up to ISO 3200.

    The LCD screen is very good, but you do have to select "Bright" in the shooting settings for the LCD to use it outside in bright light. Getting used to the touch screen is a bit different. Sony allows a bit of customization as to which icons (settings) you want to have available from the "home" screen, but it's nowhere near as fast as physical buttons would be. As with all things, it's a compromise and takes a bit to get used to.

    Cheers,

    Re: Sony TX7

    Simon, You don't need stuff like PP and such to attract comments.

    The price is going down by small increments. My resolve is weakening despite the only jpg outputs.

    More Brain Picking ...

    Just wondered if anyone's compared the images from the TX-7 to the Canon S90 ...
    (guess who's got an S90)

    Michael,

    There's a thread on DPR that does so if I recall.


    Hot,

    More beautiful images!! Your thread pushed me over the top to purchase the TX7.

    Cheers,

    Michael,

    I can certainly relate to that sentiment... what a combative fora. Unfortunately, at this point there's little in the way of info yet for the TX7. Tom Hoots' threads seem to contain the most info.

    It's a dandy little camera.

    Hot, When on click on the clickable links, the larger versions appear to crack up (jpg artificates or demosaicing something)?
