Hi!

Thanks to Sandy Negron (snegron) for pointing me to that little gem of a compact!

I tried it the other day, mounted on my Manfrotto ModoPocket "pod", it being pinched on a bench, and got this:

Technically, it was ISO 80, f/8, and 8 seconds, and I used a two-second timer to get my hand off the camera. I know that composition-wise it has many faults (the big light above the statue's shoulder ), but I can vouch for the quality of both the .jpg and the raw file that I developped with Silky Pix. And I like how the camera displays a countdown in a long exposure, and then counts again while the noise reduction engine does its thing.

I only wish that the flash options were a bit more complete, but OTOH I still have to peruse the complete owner's manual, delivered only on CD for reasons unknown (they had it in Italian, German, and some others, but no French or English version so I have to print it out ).

Au final, a great compact!

Olivier Rychner
