ALLAN, i don't think it's waterproof (no market there i think, hasn't nikonos stopped production?). i think the UW settings are just that, settings. maybe compensates for low lighting conditions underwater.
hmm....it's a tad overkill for the everyday Juan, but i like it, he he he. the links on the review you gave says it compensates for some problems. although i still like it. 18x optical without an extra lens...that says a lot. i'm gonna save up for this one.
ALLAN, i agree, goes a bit beyond the usual requirements for a point-and-shoot (i mean, how close do you need to zoom if you're just attending a binyag di ba?), but this would be a great companion outdoors and in travels specially on a bike--as you said, without the bulky lens.
the reviews say resolution is lowered when you try to use the super-features like the 15fps burst, but i can live with that, rare would i need to do that anyway, it isn't everyday someone's doing quick jumps in front of me that i need to capture; or if you try shooting in ISO5000 daw, but i rarely go beyond ISO400 anyway (Auto Auto Auto hehehe).
what hurts is this baby costs 30% less than what i paid for my olympus c750 years ago (yeah, it's depreciated well but still), and mine can only manage 10x optical zoom (though at the time it was supreme among all point-and-shoot digital cams). you gotta hand it to olympus talaga.
BTW, SUGO tipped me off on this one, he said in tipidpc some guy is selling brand new of these at Php18K. if that wouldn't floor you
28-504mm retractable lens ISO 5000 built-in stabilizer ability to save as JPG or RAW and many more features...
It's a mighty cute gadget! and the price is very nice!

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
