Hi Little,

we don't have so many thread on the E6x, so please some pictures too!

I have compared the E6 and E60 and decided to take the E6.

Sven
Hi Sven



Is that because the E6 was cheaper or better pics ? The E60 has image stabilization and is costing almost the same as te E6 these days ....



cheers

The E6 was cheaper and I did not check the improvements with the E60.

I just saw that there is an electronic stabilization.

I once promised to improve my digiscoping.
Here we go:

Revue 60mm/600mm Scope, with microscopic Zeiss eye piece
Xacti E6, F/4.0, t 1/100s, ISO61, focal length 18.9,
27.apr.2007, 21:54, two tripods



I have trained a little bit....
This is a good camera on a bad telescope, so this can be done better.

I hope you like it

Sven

- (Berlin at night):

















Japanese maples







This was: Xacti E6 with a little bit of neat image and very little sharpening.

Cheers

Sven

The E6 is a fantastic little cam !!



My daughter has asked for it for her birthday - so I gave her mine and purchased the replacement E60 ... which is on its way in the post !! The E60 can be found cheaper in the UK than the E6 at present. The E60 has image stabilization - looking forward to playing with that in due course.



I have a few pics but mainly holiday snaps etc I will find a few and post !

Have a look at some pictures of our holiday in Lanzarote , and my home village. The picture of my great nephew Zac was taken in a church hall with autumn sun shining through a window - I was demonstrating how the cam worked and realised later how good the photo was !!



None have had software enhancements. Let me know what you think !!!

The E6 is very versatile. How do you get better pics in lowlight situations using this cam ? Up the ISO ?



Interested in your view of its other manual options as well.

thanks Ronny,

it is just fun to find the limits of a camera (I have not reached them yet).
Onboard macro, a big screen and size were important in this case.
I will have to train to shoot at very small distances.
My insects start to cooperate as you can see.

Hi Little Davel,
the image stabilization is an interesting feature. I would like to test it too.
My little workaround as a "string tripod" - a rope or a chain fixed to the hand loop and stopped by my feet.

I did not expect this camera (and its lcd) to perform that good in low light situations, but your very nice pictures show us that this can be done!

The first jump demonstrates how fast the release can be. My C. A70 would have shown the splash - the E6 (this is exactly the error code with which the C. A70 died...) is much faster.

You stayed at Playa Blanca. I know Lanzarote since those ancient times, when there were no (sorry, one) "skyscrapers" on this island. But we still manage to find places where we meet only 10 to 20 peoples during the day.
...and there is still La Graciosa ;-)

Your pictures don't need postprocessing. The xacti uses a "final" sharpening method, more USM would destroy the photos. The colours are fine - looking quite natural.

Like many cameras the highlights tend to clip. We have not got a clipping control or a histogram. My first setting, when I switch on the camera is: reducing the exposure control by -0.9 EV (and clipping is gone).

With these small sensors I prefer to take ISO 50. I have not even tested different ISOs (sometimes I forgot to switch off the automatic control). My string tripod or any kind of support always helped in low light situations.

I will test some accessories soon. The results will be shown on my homepage.

http://freenet-homepage.de/seemolf/index_xacti.html

My slave flash triggers on the second flash of the camera and cooperates with the xacti.....

I have been near your little home town on my way back from cornwall and the scilly islands. The church is still there, as far as I can see. ;-)

I live at the baltic sea in Kiel (precisely in Molfsee) - the gate to the north.

Cheers

Sven
