Very nice Steve,
I think you are lucky. If I tried to do the same kind of thing I would get striations and coma and chromatic abberation etc. spoiling the result. Especially down the left-hand side, Before highlights seem correct the shadows will be totally black.
Never any real sense of sharpness.

Are you talking about my pics? What do some of your other pics look like? I just snapped off a couple of today's sunset but my USB cord is at my parents house so won't be able to get them off the camera until tomorrow. What exactly is the problem with your pictures David? That one pic you posted doesn't look too bad. What settings are you using under pic in the setup?

Sorry, yes Dave I got my wires crossed. Right - a good example is the c40z and c4000z from my website. Sqaure is the c40z file. They are both large.

The above links are now working correctly. Sorry. Forgot to check letter casing.

I couldn't pull up the 2nd pic, but the first one is nice. I'm guessing the 2nd one is not as nice and sharp as the first one?

I think someone, the moderater?,should in the current discussions draw attention to the key importance of monitor settings.

What difference can the monitor settings make when you are comparing two cameras on the same monitor. You can't completely mask a fault with monitor settings.
By the way, both my links are working. Sorry about the mistake above.

I have tried several times to get a result as good as from the c40z (once had) but it appears (from the c4000z I have) that the c40z is a better camera than the c4000z.

Sorry Dave - the link really does work now. It's been a jinx.

Well David, I still can't pull up that 2nd picture for some reason. The first one is nice (although rather large). Perhaps you should go through your camera step by step and let us know what your settings are. Here is one last picture I took at sunset last night...

Very nice picture. I have not tried that kind of thing yet. Still evaluating the camera in general.
Sorry about the link above. It was my fault, but is ok now I edited it.
They were taken at max resolution shq and default settings auto prog.

Well David, there is a difference in the two pictures. First thing is that the one that you like with the C40Z was taken in the morning it looks like, while the C4000Z was taken in the evening. Different times of the day do provide different lighting for pictures, however I can see a minor difference between the two. The C40Z does look very nice and better then the C4000Z. Is there anyway you can take it back and exchange it for a new one to see if maybe you just got one with a defunct lens or something?
