I didn't want to steal Glen's thunder from his thread so I decided to start a new thread. :)

 

Anyway, I bought an Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom this week. I've been playing around with it. Here are a couple of shots I just took. The 1st one I was moving so it came out blurry, but I thought it was a cute shot of the boys watching Spider-Man.

 

The 2nd shot came out pretty good. Here they are:

my girlfriend just got an olympus the other week

i don't recall the product number, i think it's about a 500 series

i know it's got 4megapixel but it didn't have many features for me to play with. as well when i was recording a video with it i coudln't zoom, seemed funny to me. not sure if that's normal or not.

 

nice pictures.

Not zooming while taking video is pretty standard on a lot of digital cameras, I think. Mine (a Canon) doesn't allow it either.

I'm resurrecting this thread because I bought a digital camera today. I got a canon PowerShot S500. It's 5 megapixels and tiny, which were my two biggest buying criteria apart from image quality.

 

Anyway, my pics can't compete with Dean's, but here's an example of a couple. I zoom in on the same image, until the last one is at 100% size (and severely cropped):

Here is a pic of Jtello and fiancee from a recent picnic at my house

 

Yes, look at me beg Bruce for food! Feed your guests next time man!

 

Oh, and BTW, a little informal poll here,.... if you have a bunch of friends over, grill food, drink alcoholic beverages, and play volleyball, would you refer to this event as a picnic or a barbeque? Aren't the prerequisites to having a picnic be that you go to a remote location, lay out a checkered blanket, and eat food out of a basket,... or something to that effect!?!?

 

 

Oh, and to bring the thread back on track. Ed, that looks like you have a nice new camera there. It looks like resolution is great,... as it should be a 5mp. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pictures with that San Francisco flavor, as you shoot them. 8)

I am still loving my Canon PowerShot A80 I got this past December.

 

The level of detail on the full sized version of this one impressed me - you can see some of the individual pollen grains.

And the panoramic "stitch" mode really impressed me on this series of pictures. (I think it was 4 or 5 individual shots originally).

Is the stitch thing in the camera, or does it use the stitch software that comes with the camera, or both? I noticed that mine came with stitcher software...but I haven't installed it yet.

 

I'm used to doing stitching manually in photoshop, which works fine, but if the stitching software corrects barrel distortion, or otherwise automates the process I'll have to check it out.

 

Nice images!

 

EDIT: After doing a little RTFM, I see that it's a combination of stitch assist in the camera and the software...very cool.

Ed- Its in the software. Pretty neat and quite easy to use.

 

Here is a shot that I stitched of my back yard which is actually 4 pictures stitched together

Thanks!

 

As you discovered, it's a combination of both. The above panorama is the one that's turned out the best for me so far. Some of the problems I've had probably could have been avoided if I had a tripod - I think I got a little off when spinning to take the sequence. When that happens, even the software can have a difficult time stitching them together properly.

Yeah, that's a problem if you're doing handheld stuff, it's very easy to misalign the individual images.

 

On another note, I am now seriously considering getting this iPod media reader for taking the camera on trips. I can see it would be very easy to fill up a 512MB CF card. Using the iPod for offloading images would be ideal.

Now that's a pretty cool little device. I remember seeing something along those lines by iOmega a while back - the PhotoShow or something - where you could transfer the pictures straight to a Zip/Jaz drive without having a computer, and then play them back on the TV if you wanted to.

 

However, I don't have an iPod. ;)

Wow, those are some awesome fireworks shots. I toyed with the notion of getting a Digital Rebel (or other SLR), but I decided that was just too much camera for how often I take pictures. Maybe in a couple of years, when there'll be new models out to tempt me.

 

But (since a mod hasn't hopped in here yet ;)) I think there's a 640 x 480 size limit on pictures so you might want to resize them.
