Anything that Photomatix cannot handle, this program can. Will not give you dramatic results like Photomatix, but is far more reliable when there is a time difference...

Well, this was the first time that I have ever been to Wash U. I guess you would call it the main campus. Located by the quad area. It goes over a freeway into some residential area...

Hello again some questions.
Ancientritual do you use separate noise reduction software or is it bundled with other software? In either case what do you use and how did you arrive at your choice.

No photo program that I have shows me all the information for a particular photo that appears in the viewing screen on the camera. Do you know of any camera picture software that will display all the information, such as mode, white balance choice, DR choice etc. I ask because to compare different settings and what they do to a photo I need to not only look at the photos in iphoto for instance but display them on the camera so I can see what brought about the picture quality differences.
Thanks in advance

There is an EXIF Viewer available for MAC's in Firefox. That is what I use.

Nice pics. I used to have a Ricoh film SLR camera and loved it. However, it seems that Ricoh never made it big on digital and I gave up on them. Recently I started looking for a compact digicam to take to the beach, skiing, hiking and I came across the CX3. Once I started to investigate further, I discovered the CX1 and 2 as being great cameras. The problem is, there is not a whole lot out there about them.

Do you guys have any galleries with more images from you CXn cameras?

Thanks, Sarah. As I said, 7x zoom is not long enough. I'd go with the CX2/CX3 instead. I'm actually leaning toward the CX2 since the main difference between the two models is HD video recording available on the CX3 and I don't care too much for that. Regular video is fine with me. Besides, the CX2 is cheaper. If the CX3 had improved the low light AF, which apparently is the camera Achilles' heel, then I'd consider spending the xtra $$$. The other thing is, the link you sent me is for a pink camera...I don't think I'd go for that color!

Hi there, Tullio-

Just a few observations on the CX-1. The zoom is not as long as most people desire. The image quality a max zoom is less than optimal. One of the reasons I think for that image quality failure is the lack of a really good IS system.

If you look closely at the midrange and macro performance of the CX-1, image quality becomes measurably better. If you put the CX-1 on a tripod, image quality gets much better. That seems to validate the less than great IS system.
