  • Posted on: GIMP 2.6 Review

    I've used GIMP for a while and find it a very useful tool. My Photoshop experience is limited to trying a time-limited download version. I thought there were a few nice features in Photoshop that GIMP doesn't have, but there was no way I was going to pay hundreds of pounds to move to Photoshop.

  • Posted on: Fujifilm FinePix X100 Digital Camera Review

    LeftForum makes a valid point - a camera with a single, non-interchangeable lens does have limitations. In no way can such a camera serve all purposes. For my own likely uses, a 35mm lens would be a reasonable choice, for taking landscapes when walking or cycling and not wanting to carry a bigger camera. Certainly a 50mm lens would provide less distortion in a portrait but even then it's not an ideal portrait lens.

    My current digital camera is a Leica Digilux 2 which shares some of the features of the X100 - manual controls for aperture, shutter speed, and focus, and a good max aperture (f2-2.4). But it's about six years old, 4.9mp, and limited to ISO400, with only ISO100 providing noise-free images. The possible attraction of the X100 for me is the high ISO - the 6400 shots look great to me, better than ISO400 on my Leica.

    So I have to decide whether to foresake the excellent 28-90 zoom on the Leica for the high ISO, higher megapixel count, bigger sensor, and a few years more reliability with a newer Fuji.

    I'm very tempted, just waiting for the price to drop ...
