Hi all,

added 5 more city pix to my fz50 gallery

http://www.pbase.com/tvpopta/panasonic_fz50

Last 5 shots. All taken with uv and circular polarizer screwed in front (exept no polarizer on the 'crazy frame') The 'tunnel' shot is taken at iso400. Very pleasing result indeed The comparison contains a raw crop, and a crop of the jpeg that comes with the raw. Since the Jpeg has normal instead of fine compression, it might not be completely fair; But it's not about the compression, but the detail that is destroyed by in-camera proccesing (noise reduction, sharpness).

Cheerio! GB

Thanks for these further pics.

There is no doubt FZ50 can do at least as much as FZ30 can, resolution-wise (and surely more at high hiso). The problem is that it seems that one has to shoot RAW to obtain that detail or more (cf. DPREV tests), which is disappointing, because RAW is very slow in shooting and PP.

It would be better to have a noisy but more detailed picture, for noise is easy to remove from the areas where it is unwanted. Instead RAW files have to be corrected not only in Noise, but also in colors, WB, contrast and CA...

FZ50 is the results of the complaints of people about Noise when FZ10, 20 and 30 appeared...
Now we have to shoot raw ...

Yep, you're pretty much forced to use the raw-mode, if max quality is the target. It's sad you can't use burst or bracketing in this mode. Editing results in layering multiple Tiff files of over 20mb :O

be nice if the fixed up raw mode on the FZ50 like they have just done with the, just released firmware fix for the L1.
