Well in that case, compare Sony's 2fps or 5fps mode vs the other cam's 3fps mode. Once again I would rather have a choice of 2/5/10 than be stuck with simply one burst mode. Also, many of the P&S do burst at reduced resolution whereas Sony does it at full resolution.

Acheron,

You are beating a dead horse, I have explain my belief in not following the hype. That is all. Some camera reduce some don't. Do not feel like going through ever model. If you feel that the burst mode is to your like, that is great. All I pointed out was that draw backs if a member looking at this post did not know any thing about this camera. As there is not to many on hand review by users yet.

So if you do not like my simple statement to it cool to have 10fps, then have to wait 16 or 13 second, I am sorry. But that is the facts.

No more dead horse beating form me.

No one needed to be told that companies use marketing/advertising to sell products. No one needed to be told that the camera would be unavailable while writing 10 images to the SD card (except perhaps someone who has never used a digital camera). Every post in both threads is either you complaining, comparing P&S cams to bigger, better and more expensive cams or pointing out common sense issues like the one above.

OK, 10fps no good for you. It works as Sony intended and anyone who wanted to know how long it would take the camera to write the images had the info readily available. The S90 has better IQ. I agree. Are we surprised? No. The sensor is 30% larger and there is less image processing going on not to mention the support of RAW files. blah blah blah This was already discussed long before you graced us with your presence in this thread and most (all?) of the thread participants know at least as much about these 2 cams as you do. We get it. Go make a thread in the Sony forum and tell us everything you hate all at once. Get it out of your system. The useful information in the thread is getting lost amongst your incessant b*tching.

The TL-350/WB-2000 is still a work in progress. Yes, the specs look very impressive. But the only mention we have seen of the TL350 is at seagadget, a website owned by Samsung, and that was really a preview with a few photos.

The TL350 potentially could be a video makers dream, but we will not know much more until it reaches the dealer's shelves and we read our first professional review.

digicam5-

No, there has been no prospective delivery date posted for the TL350 in the USA. I am posting my HX5 photos in the Sony P+S folder.

Stop it already, you are making a mountain from a mole hill. It all started with me not thinking that a 10fps 1 sec burst is really useful. That is my opinion that is all.
