Is it a All-In-One that wants to be a dSLR? :blah:

I have been reading this thread for a while now. Still trying to decide whether to buy an s9500. [ I successfully resisted the rush to buy a dabs one!].



Now that so many of you have them in your hands - I wonder if somebody could answer me this simple question:



What about Depth of Field preview?

Is this possible on the S9000?



I tried one in a shop yesterday and there was a clicking when I half pressed the shutter, like, perhaps the diaphram was closing, or perhaps it was focus related.



Anyhow - I'd really like to know whether this really can provide true WYSIWYG.



Thanks in advance

Acon about the s9500 would be the menu handling i guess, it's intensive, but with some practice I think changes can be made in a short time. A button to switch pages would have been a big plus to change settings faster.

Meant to reply to this yesterday but forgot, so you may have found this by now. It does have a button to switch pages, just press left so that the page number lights up and then use up & down to go through the pages.

thanks for the tip!! it's saves a lot of button pressing!

About the teleconverter, yes it does add some weight , but if you handle it carefully, like zooming to 300mm with the converter on in vertical position instead of horizontal. And by using it carefully (holding it with both hands ofcourse) and not carry it arround with the converter screwed to it (the little manual advises to screw it off after using it).
Then it should be OK. The converter comes with a soft bag to protect it while carrying it with you.
This converter is for experimenting, I won't use it frequently or carry it arround a lot.

added text later on:
Now I know why you can only use the converter at maximum zoom...
If the lens of the S9500 is not extended to 300mm, the wide angle kicks in and the image you see is like watching trough a tube :-)
It creates a funny look though, worth making pics of, so I'll try that out too and post pix here.

I still had a chance to make test pix! Subject... the moon!

all 3 photo's only 100% cropped, no resizing was done.

this one is 300mm full, with 2x digital zoom, making 600mm total, iso80 used (in all 3 pix).


this one is 300mm, NO digital zoom, WITH 2.2x teleconverter making 660mm total


and finally.... 300mm, with 2x digital zoom and teleconverter making 1320mm total.

A link this time because of the size:-)

Conclusion: teleconverter is better than digital zoom, but gives more purple fringing.

the raw image of a photo made with the s9500 is about 17, 7 MP. When the photo is stored, it will be recalculated to 9 MP if you are in jpeg mode. My guestimation would be, that a digally zoomed phote is NOT recalculated down, but is a crop from 17, MP. Which would be a good explanation on the better detail on Digital zoom compared to a cropped image.

any one any thoughts on this?
