    The pictures converted from RAW are resized to 2560 pixel on the long side, so thats why the look sharper. And the pictures are all a little bit underexposed for JPGs. I want to underexpose these pictures to keep the clouds in the sky.

    And the pictures converted from raw are processed with a lot of settings to get the best out of it. You could also do some post processing with the OOC JPGs.

    what the !@*#! the raw actually looks kinda HDR to me... great dynamic range... its a world of difference against the JPEG, i didn't even know that... now that adobe LR/photoshop can process the EX1 images - i would definitely shoot raw next time!! haha.

    No i just use Lightroom 3.2. With some tricks you can produce good HDR (lite) pictures from a single raw file with Lightroom. I did this before with Raw files from my Canon 40D.

    Hmm...interesting. Is it difficult to learn the tricks and functions for RAW in Lightroom and Photoshop?

    No, you can use my template

    Here is the Template for Lightroom 3.2:
    http://www.qul.ch/bilder/EX1/HDR_fro...SRW.lrtemplate

    i think you have to copy it in this folder:

    C:\Users\[insert your user name here]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets\User Presets

    or use the import function in the Lightroom.

    EX1 for 389 USD:
    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-TL500-...2546337&sr=8-1

    Here some new pictures.
    All were taken as RAW and developed in Lightroom 3.2.

    Since LR 3.2 is out I use RAW (SRW) as much as possible.
    The pseudo HDR look is applied with just one klick on my template.

    i am starting to like this camera alot more now that i can use the DNG converter to convert the SRW files to edit on my CS4, can't use ACR 6.2 cause thats made only for CS5... ):

    just to share a few shots taken at changi boardwalk, edited with cs4 curves and imagenomic noise reduction plugin







    --

    imo, the swivel screen has helped me to compose a lot better, as i was shooting hand held at some difficult angles without a tripod.... think it would've much harder if i used a LX3. thankfully, the LX5 is pretty expensive and i dont think i regretted getting this camera looking at my shots once more... its a pretty sweet camera, close to a DSLR for a very reasonable price.

    only complain is that i wished the refresh rates were faster, shooting raw can be a pain waiting to refresh... then again, its just p&s, perhaps im expecting too much...

    Shots taken can match those from DSLR.
    Btw, is the shutter speed fast when pressed? How is this compared to SLR?

    Slow. No where close to dslr. Slower than my LX3 in the past even if i recall.
    Thats the major limitation of a point & shoot
