Now, check the exif data and you'll see something very surprising. If you don't have an exif viewer there is an add-on exif viewer to Mozilla Firefox

https://addons.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/addon/3905/

Then right click on the image

What is it I'm missing?

Well, Torgny, taking into account the size difference in the sensors, the field of view of each picture seems correct. The exposure data seems appropriate, f/stop, shutter speed, and iso, while a bit different, close enough to give similar exposure. I thought the dates may have been the clue, but after re-reading the exif, I don't know. I will leave my post instead of deleting it, but I am at a loss to find a surprise...

Robert,

What surprised me in the first place was how similar the pictures are. Makes me trust cameras' colour rendition a bit more.

I also know I was out there for a couple of days in a row. The exif and Adobe Bridge shows different dates. As it probably is impossible that almost exactly the same cloud formations would occur, there must be a simpler explanation

Always go by the simplest explanation, Wilhelm of Occham and Renée Descartes said. Suppose that's a good way to start. No need to presuppose a seires of (non) events as in Groundhog Day

Thanks, Robert

Torgny

What do you mean? Opanda Exif reads:

Date Time = 2010-06-11 00:37:35 for the Canon
Date Time = 2010-06-11 00:41:39 for the Lumix

That's when they were last modified/edited. ;-)

When they were taken (assuming the date/time was set correctly in camera and the EXIF was not edited, they were taken around 1 month apart):

2008:10:21 17:15:34 for the Panasonic

2008:11:20 17:38:53 for the Canon

A substantial proof of the eternal return hypothesis.

Thank you, gentlemen,

for your interest in this little dilemma. "A one pipe problem", Sherlock Holmes would have said (as opposed to a two pipe problem, or, if I remember correctly, a three pipe problem?)

The Lumix TZ5 is a travel camera with advanced date and time settings. I must have, what do you say, f..... it up (Sorry, indoctrinated by american films) when I made the initial settings after buying the camera

I don't believe in ghosts of any kind (not even the holy one) but it felt a bit, what do you say, "spooky"

So, what can I (we) learn from this. Well, perhaps to really get to know a camera, a bit like a victorian "honeymoon"

Most of all I wanted to show how well a point and shoot camera can perform compared to a much more expensive enthusiast dslr with a pro lens

I'm happy I got the chance to do so

Thank you

Torgny
