musket,

Oh, ladybird it is, thank you.

Is it ok with ladybug too (in the UK I mean) In swedish the "popular" name is "Maria nyckelpiga" which freely translated means "the maiden that carries the key of virgin Mary" - sounds quite exciting when you think of it (smile)

On the red colour of the ladybird. (Doctoral topic in enthymology)

Yes, it is natural looking, more Nikon- than Canonlike. Canon consistently oversaturates red colours. In fact it´s the work of the Fujifilm Super CCD colour algorithm programmers.

What do you think, comparing Fuji and Nikon colour rendition

Yes in the UK and Ireland we refer to these insects as ladybirds

In north America they are called Lady bugs

With regards to the colour rendition of the fuji and nikon

I'm not sure howI would define the difference both seem

to have good and bad points and with post processing the

colour and tonal range can be greatly extended.

Some new digicams/dslrs

are due on the scene soon, fitted withthe latestccd sensors that have

a different way to capture a photo, with much larger file sizes though

and are offering the promise that they come nearer to film quality.

I'll watch with interest to see if any of the photo's come on to the forums

from this newer breed, before passing any comments.



Also remember that the dot pitch on a pc/tv monitorie the size of the

pixelsare muchlarger than what you can print on paper,

thats the reason whybigger photo's show more on monitors

than smaller photo's.

Monitors win out on dynamic range (range of light to dark)wereas prints can hold

greater definition/resolution and the colours seem different on a print as well,

so I think the printed result or end product is the best way to determine quality

unless of course your aim is just PC/TV display then thebigger photo is always

going tolook better................musket

musket,

I think I prefer ladybird to ladybug (UK vs US: 1-0). In Danish butterflies are called the equivalent to sommer bird, "Sommerfugl"

Denmark vs UK/US: 1-0

(smile)

Thanks for the elaboration on the technical issues

Torgny
