    Just recieved this camera. Wanted something to use for a 'carry around'....all that super DSLR gets heavy mile after mile. These are the first two shots that the shutter ever moved(after the factory tested it-I hope)!


    I can see you too

    EXIF data states the focal lenght at 100.0mm, but the 35mm equivalent is 1681.0mm
    How can this be?

    Must I have a friend

    EXIF data states the focal lenght at 100.0mm, but the 35mm equivalent is 1025.0mm


    I know these images are not composed perfectly, but I'd like to ask if they are focused. My glasses won't be here until next Wednesday, and I'd like to know if there is a problem I need to know about.....thanks!
    Another question: How can the focal lenght for each image be the same, while the 35mm equivalent be different?

    According to the camera specs the maximum focal length is 100mm, or 560mm equivalent.

    My guess is that you are using digital zoom - the lens is at 100mm (560mm) and the digital zoom is whats giving the high figures for the 35 mm equivalents.

    I agree, the first must have gone in to the digital zoom range. Just cropped in camera, in other words.

    The reason the image quality appears to be low/grainy/oof is because of digital focus enlarges the center of the image.

    I will use a watermark when my pictures get good enough for someone to steal.

    The focus does appear to be a bit soft. When you look through the camera do you see a group of red dots or just one? You want to set your focus to just the center dot. Read your manual and it will tell you how. Also your exposure seems to be a bit over exposed.

    Just my opinion. Keep working on your shots, it is only through trial and error that we learn! Enjoy the new camera!
