    Re: He's behind you

    The first image is a winner. The eye travel is
    beautiful. The vertical lines work great even with the
    chairs. The horizontal lines work great even with the
    Mans arm. His right arm supports the shape on
    the back of the chairs.

    Interesting play with the mans nose and the back lit
    woman. His hand works with Bush's hand. The empy space
    on the right supports the irritant which is the chair slightly
    ajar from the table.....very nice vision.....

    The second could be by any tourist......

    Re: He's behind you

    Thks, very nice of you to reply...

    I prefer the first one as well, but the second one had his hands in the frame,i'm always overly concerned about makin sure everything's in the picture

    But to be honest,if either is any good,it was pure luck...

    thks again

    Hi thkss Lili...

    It's a Samsung S760 around 60...

    Its not very reliable,it got wet for seconds last week and the screen played up for a while,plus battery go super quick...

    I still have my Grd,but wanted something that turnt on around 40mm and cheap,the Samsung turns on around 38mm (plus as a small zoom)..Maybe next year i can afford the dp2 i'm excited about that camera..

    They were b & w in camera

    IN-Camera B&W turned out well
    I wanted a 40mm efl camera and got the 2006 vintage Samsung L85 for 175$ on clearance from Wolf Camera

    I do not know why it was panned so bad. It is quiet, has full tho menu and button driven manual controls. The lens is very good and the noise reduction, tho not GRD level, is reasonable

    How do you find it compared to the Grd ??
    Apples to Oranges, they each are designed for different tasks.
    38-190mm zoom versus 28mm prime, etc.
    The GRD is a bit slimmer and easier to carry. The Controls are beyond compare and the shutter lag, in manual focus or using half-press prefocus, very fast.
    L85 is a bit chunkier and heavier build quality is superb. Its lens extension and zoom motors are dead silent, far more than the extension mechanism of the Ricoh. its LCD is awesome, bright and with a wide viewing angle. For all its brilliance, what you see is what you get. The shutter lag is very typical digicam, pre-focus or manual focus helps, but not as much as GRD. L85 makes quite nice images even at iso 400. But thats as high as it goes. It also does not have GRD bite or film-grain-like-noise, NR is more aggresive. Not watercolour though. Manual controls are button/menu driven, but are all there; including sharpness
    The zoom is sharp at all lengths, even wide open at wide end;

    F2.8 38mm efl iso 50
    When it was new it was tough sell at 499$
    Walmart had or has them at 149$
    A veritable steal at that
    L85 does very good video, for those that care for that.
    Unusual in power zoom camera, one can zoom while recording
    mike mutes for that tho
    plus, until you power down, stopping and starting video makes one longer file, not many small ones.
    Battery life on Samsung is wild, nearly as good as fuji f30/31.
    I carry extra battery with GRD
    Have not needed one for Samsung
    It uses the same battery as sigma DP-1, for those that have one this could be nice.
    flash on both cameras acquired taste, the GRD flip up flash is kinder to faces that fixed low one on Samsung
    Both cameras can have live histograms.
    GRD styling is like razor, purpose built for street work.
    Retro styling of L85 is pretty, without being gaudy.
    I would have preferred all matt black, but it is elegantly non threatening, so it can serve in street work as well as long as one remembers to anticipate shot more.
    I consider the L85 to be a lovely and effective compliment to my GRD.
    I would not hesitate to take it as sole camera on long trip esp if traveling light were my raison d'etre.
    GRD and my Asus EEE PC or L85 and the same netbook are killer combination; Shoot all day, hie thee to Starbucks and upload to flickr.
    Excellent and light package for long trips.
