comment How To Fix Badly Functioning Shutter Release-Button?
I've been electrocuted once or twice while taking apart cameras and it hurts - this is valuable advice!

comment Will a dSLR and compact camera produce the same bokeh output at f/2.0?
I have an LX5 and, in my experience at least, the only time you ever get a nicely blurred background is when shooting something really close in macro mode, so if you want a camera which produces nice background blur, you'll probably have to look elsewhere :-(

comment Does image quality on compact cameras degrade when zooming in?
Ok fair point. The main thing I was puzzled by was the seemingly worse detail in the distance e.g. on the tower, but I guess this is just natural and not necessarily down to the lens itself.
