Ektachrome, just corrected myself. Subject should have said travel zoom instead.

I agree. There is also a very noticeable bluish color cast. Good sharpness for a pinhead CMOS on the wider angle shots though.


Auto tone adjustment, before and after ...

the red in the letters was not a bright red, the pictures are very close to what the building actually looks like.

No one was commenting on the colors themselves, but rather the fact that the image is very washed out and has a noticeable color cast. In other words, the image has very low contrast and there is a bluish haze over the entire image. Check the black coats for example - they're not black in the original image. It's just very unpleasant to look at.

I agree, at least on paper, the Nikon S9100 looks interesting. It is not on the market yet, so it will be awhile before we can make a real determination. based on the S8100 reviews, it looks to be an ISO 800 max camera.

In the last 3 years Nikon has not set the world afire with great P+S camera, so I am being cautious.

I bought a Nikon P+S and returned it the next day.

Nikon concentrates their efforts on DSLR's and glass, Their P+S's are a embarrassment to the Nikon Brand...IMO

Of course if we eliminated the "pocket-able" quality issue, the best P+S camera might indeed be the Sony R1.

I believe I found the problem, I was shooting through the suv windshield in the second shot. The first shot was through an open side window windshield
as I did in this shot
