Just wanted to thank you for your diligent effort in posting so many photos from your TX7. Especially for continuing to post your photos and taking all comments in stride. Your photos are awesome!

I may have missed it, but what percentage of the photos were shot handheld?

Keep up the excellent work,
Skylark

I didn't count, but I 'm using a tripod only at night, indoor - so I think 98.5% of outdoor pictures are freehand - till 1/5 sec (don't drink & make photos)

Pictures with flash (last side) and macros all without tripod ... I'm too lazy to use my tripod :-)

The 98% without tripod really speaks well for the TX7 (and you) since your photos are so outstanding. Especially since there's no optical viewfinder on the TX7 to use the face as a tripod.

I ordered a TX7 for my wife and hope her photos turn out 80% as good as yours.

And BTW, thanks for including the EXIF data with your photos. I wish everyone would do that when they post photos.

Thanks,
Skylark

You must have fun with your camera - then it's a good camera. Don't hear if others say - this is a bad camera.
And don't belive: things (or women) others have are better!

you can use every picture viewer - some especially for EXIFs.

I ONLY use (free) IrfanView ( www.irfanview.com ), also for all "postprocessing" ***), which concerns resizing pictures (and therefore automatic sharpening)

save picture, open it with IrfanView ... Image Information ... EXIF




***) "Postprocessing RAW = wasting of lifetime" :-)
It makes no sense to make a picture within 1/150 sec and process it for 15 minutes :-|

I use Firefox with the "Exif Viewer" addon. When a photo appears in a thread, right click and then click "View image EXIF data". EXIF data is then displayed.

Maybe an Internet Explorer user can chime in with how he/she views EXIF data.

In your posted photos, I see your TX7 in your case. But the dimensions for that case on eBay are smaller than the dimensions of the TX7 per the Sony specs.

Sony TX7: 97.8mm x 59.5mm x 17.5mm
China case: 97mm x 58mm x 25mm

Is the fit a bit too tight?
BTW, what is the case made of?

Thanks for your help,
Skylark
