Default Eliminating the 8800

I realized that, for the photography I do, 8 mp was not necessary.


The extra resolution will always be handy for cropping purposes.

The FZ20 has a much longer zoom and is easier to find. .


Go for the Olympus Camedia C-8080. It out performs all other 8
megapixel ZLR type cameras. It is the best ZLR.

However, it lacks the image stabilisation present in the FZ20. My tests
have shown that the FZ20 equalsa or perhaps even beats the image "quality"
producesd by the Minolta A2 in JPEG mode.

You were the group creator, yes? Perhaps you should have named the
group

rec.photo.digital.zlr-with-is or
rec.photo.digital.fz20-is-the-only-good-zlr

Seriously if you want to attract new participants you shouldn't be
putting down their cameras.

The Minolta A2 is the bottom of the 8 megapixel ZLR heap. No
comparison to the Olympus.

You are the person proposing the c8080 as the best ZLR, without pointing
out its limitations. There is a wide choice of ZLR cameras, and if
someone has a particular need such as 24mm wide angle, zoom past 140mm,
less than 8MP, or image stabilisation then not all ZLR models will meet
their requirements. Of course, there will also be people who have a
flexible requirement and may buy on price alone.

Yes, I was one of the charter proposers, although it was group discussion
which refined the charter and the group vote which created the newsgroup.

Fair enough! What can I say? I love my camera as much as you love
yours.

I voted for the group, actually for ALL the new rpd groups. So I
suppose that makes me one of the creators too? Hehe. I feel a warm
sense of pride.
