    ..Some from a walk yesterday. A bit of straightening/cropping in iPhoto but bar a couple of small tweaks straight out of camera..

    Sorry you left the LX 3 behind. The photos were enlightening.

    Ah,life..aint it just like Tom Thumb's blues..
    ..when your gravity fails,
    and negativity don't pull you through..

    and that my friend seems a good positive review, just had a quick skim through as a little busy right now..

    Anyway, who gives a monkey's, you like it, I like it, and lots of others like it too.

    I was going to post some half interesting musings about those 'Abbe..rations' you mentioned, may do later, all from a historical perspective, don't even know if it was what you were talking about, watch this space.

    In the meantime...da 'hood remains.

    Keep posting,

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Hi Paul,

    Yes it was a great camera and I'm so pleased that you liked some of my images.

    I get a feeling that you are not enjoying my new pics with RX100 so much. Well, I'm still slowly learning all about the camera, and I'm really enjoying using it, and I think some of the pics are as 'enlightening' as LX3.

    There's no going back now, and the 'quality' I feel is definitely an improvement.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    Alas, some may call that corner bend-ness out of squareness a abbey-adoration. It's safe to say that it's just a good eye with a good understanding camera....

    Thanks Don you're right it really depends on how one interprets the overall picture created by the shooter and the camera.

    Hi Don
    So I can understand that you would choose the RX100 over the GRD if you had to make a choise? Thanks for review.

    Uh....let's not get carried away about this. When I break in a new camera, I give it 30 days of solo use. I don't touch another camera regardless of the need.

    To be honest and so that there is a clear understanding....
    I am using the RX100 everyday but I'm jonsing to use the GRD4.

    My shrink has given me digital detox medicine to put the craving for the GRD4 at rest. It won't work, I'll never make 30 days. That sexi little white body just teases me to no end. And then when the lens comes out..B&W just oozes out...I surrender!

    I hope this is clear enough.

    Yay! Someone else does this!

    I do the same thing—I use whatever camera I just bought for everything, once I pick it up, regardless of how appropriate or inappropriate it might be, to see what I can make with it.

    I just yesterday hit the 30 day mark with the X2, decided to celebrate: I took my walk with the Polaroid SX-70 and finished off my Impossible Project color film. That was fun ... Working on the results now.

    (I'm eager to use the Leica CL which arrived while I was getting comfortable with the X2.. Film is loaded and ready to shoot. But I doubt I'll put a whole month into that: it is, after all, the third CL I've owned and the controls/features have little to surprise me at this point.)

    Yes...no...perhaps its clear...perhaps not...you are teasing/challenge my limited vocabulary (I'm just a dane)(I had to search the Urban Dictionary: Jonesing="the act of needing something badly. Usually related to chemical dependency")..therefore I have to spell it slowly to be sure that I understood: You are mighty impressed by the RX100, its skills in fast focusing, IQ , colours, hight Iso.....but...but..closing your eyes, and decision have to be made, it's the GRD you grab for the final and happy reach out....correct?

    Hi Godfrey...even though the Cl (for M-lenses I guess) isn't the same as the Minilux, still have the Minilux and that one took some of the best family and children etc. pictures for several years.

    :-)

    I had the Minizoom model for a while. The friend I sold it to just replaced it with a digital camera of similar size last summer.

    The CL is more of a compact, less expensive M than the type of camera the Minilux is ... the Minilux is more akin to the X2.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    My solution to the eye-level problem. Voigtlander+3M Heavy Duty double-sided foam tape.

    Problems.

    1) Finder only has lines for 28 and 35. Had to figure out what the zoom equivalent was to 35-- and the camera displaying it as 1x 1.2x, etc. is a pain.

    2) There doesn't seem to be any way to make the camera memorize the last lens setting, so it's forever turn-on-fiddle-lever-remember-it's-1.3x-for-35 etc.

    3) You can't turn off the display, so the camera either burns batteries as you walk along or it sleeps itself and, in so doing, retracts the lens. Grrrrrrr.

    4) On a related note, eye-level or not, IS or not, it's so damn small that it's nearly impossible to keep steady. Attaching a plastic phallus to the end of it might work for people who, at the end of sentences, verbs put (g), it's ain't working for shaky-boy here.

    OTOH

    5) My Rollei 35S was a pain in the ***, too, and I loved it.

    Well Thorkil, it seems you speak and understand Philadelphian American better than I speak Proper English.
    To answer, yes the GRD4 would win against any and all.
    I am counting the days till I can use it again.

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    I'd like to report great success using the Carry Speed filter ring and a 46-49mm step up filter. Many weren't pleased with the CPL quality and/or that lack of threads to use their own filter. Well you can simply take it apart, get a $3 step up ring, 46-XX of your choice and some super glue and have just what we hoped this product could of been all along

    As you can see, the little outer lip on the red part just happens to perfectly fit inside the 46mm male outer thread.

    http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/4773/cheesy1.jpg

    I added a few spots of superglue to the magnetic ring itself and sandwiched it back between the red and black parts, and then added some glue around the lip of the red part and stuck it all together.

    Now I've got 49mm threads on the front I can use anything from my filter collection with and that sticks on/off with the built in magnet. The little metal part that sticks to the front barrel is so slim you don't even know its there when your not using a filter.

    I'm seeing no vignetting even with 2 stacked filters at 28mm equiv as well.

    http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/1733/filtersf.jpg

    All and all I couldn't be happier with this product!

    I am a new owner of the RX100.

    Coming from a Xpro1 I had to set the jpg of the RX100

    -3 color
    -3 contrast



    What is really amazing in the little RX100 is the video

    Amazing for a such little toy ...

    All-American hero and guest of honour at the Goodwood Revival Race Meeting, Dan Gurney (81 years old), acknowledges the adulation of the fans as he is chauffeured around the Goodwood track by Tony Brooks (80 y.o.), one of his Ferrari team-mates from the late 1950's, in a Ferrari Testa Rossa (53 y.o.).

    Cheers,

    Me too! First GP I ever saw was Dan's first GP win in French GP, 1962 at Rouen in Normandy which was one of those fearsome old tracks on public roads- fast downhill swoops down the side of a valley to a cobbled hairpin and back up the other side. Most unlike the go-kart tracks used today.

    Here 3 more Goodwood pics. Grand Prix cars from the 30's, 50's, and 60's.

    Cheers,

    Not normally a big fan of HDR but I have to admit that I am having fun playing with the feature on the RX100.
