Well you are certainly getting a lot more out of the CP5700 than I ever could! Was that automatic focus? Guess it had to be, as the manual focus on the 5700 is a joke. I missed an awful lot of shots with my 5700 because it wouldn't focus properly.

Congratulations, great job. I'll swap you another 5700 for the D2x :lol:

Err I am confused... :?

For a moment I thought the white specks on each are slightly different, but on closer inspection both images have the same URL and filename, and same size in bytes.

I don't think it is April at your end of the world is it :wink: ?

Regards,
Jonathan

Jonathan you are right they were the same picture, i just change them. The one on the bottom is the D2X.
You'd better hide your CP5700, as I can see a few DLSR owners heading your way... ;-)

Jonathan

#2 does have a thinner DOF and less sharpened look, especially around the details in the middle. But the coolpix does a great job with close-ups. My old 950 does well with that too, but Pa says, focusing is a pain!

Chris i am still trying to find the right adjustment in the D2X to reach the quality of picture i can obtain with the CP5700. As for those old coolpix camera i have seen marvelous pictures coming out of those.

BTW - nice shot on #1.
This shows that lust apart, good old and faithful gear serves the photographer's best intentions.
I had a CP5700 for some time and sold it too fast. I missed the portability and the macro function. That's one reason why I bought a CP8800. I even miiss the CP4500 I had before - for candids.
