    Hi everyone :)

    Call me Endor, from Australia :mrgreen:

    I've only recently become interested in Photography after I got my dog in January. I mostly take pictures of him but I'm interested in taking pictures of landscapes, people, anything! :p I don't have a great camera at the moment, a 6 year old sony cybershot, but I'm hoping to get a new one soon :thumbsup: I use Photofiltre as my editing software, not the best, wish I could afford photoshop :no smile:

    I hope I get to know everyone a bit better, and improve my photography skills! :sillysmi:

    Endor

    welcome to the forum :)

    the cybershots weren't bad at all (Thos with the Zeiss optics)! I know people who are still looking for a decent replacement, but all the new models seem to have just more MP but not really better resolution.

    I think the old Cybershots had a rather large sensor (1/1.8") with few megapixels (5ish), whereas today you often get smaller sensors (1/2.5") with more megapixels (7ish or more) if I remember right.

    Hence pixelsize on the sensor was significantly larger on the old cybershots giving rather pleasing results.
