    Nice picture, :thumb: but I always thought the ones taken with the old camera were darn good too. Maybe I shouldn't phrase it that way, in case your wife is looking over your shoulder…

    Great picture Paul, that new camera really makes a difference (is that better?). :D

    Wonderful picture Shamus, I don't know what the camera cost you, but it was worth it.

    Your layout pictures always astound me.
    When I start I hope to be even 25% as good.

    Thank you for sharing your layout with us.

    Nice photo Paul but tooo bad we have to keep them this size to upload. Fuji use very good lenses but I am sure your previous did too as your pictures have always shown great detail.
    Hope you have fun with this new one. How many megapixels? It must also have ? X optical zoom too.

    Great camera, Paul (and a great picture, too)! :thumb:

    What amazes me is the loooong depth of focus. What is the smallest aperture of the lens? With my camera I can take things which are very near the lens, but there is always a very small portion really in focus. :(

    Hi all and many thanks,
    I am very very pleased with the new camera, I thought I had a fault with it on using it but (IT WAS ME) I hadn't switched back on the AF (Silly boy)
    The main part is that this camera is 6.3 megapixel as agains my Olympus of 2.1. The oly had a 10X optical zoom where as the Fuji has 6x optical and 3.2x digital zoom, and works with optional wide and telephoto lens adapters.
    Here's some specs on it Courtesy of Steve’s Digicams

    Paul,
    Did you use the old Olympus for the article in Model Railroading? Those were great pictures. :thumb: How do you get such a good depth of field?

    Hi George, yes, all photos in the magazine were done with the OlympusC700UZ, I used Aperture settings of f8 and auto shutter speed.
    Cheers
