Took some .raw test shots today and attempted to load them into Zoombrowser via my card reader but alas no joy the program couldn't see them. Got them into ZB by dragging them onto the desktop via explorer and loading them from there.

I might be doing something obviously wrong but if possible I prefer to load via a card reader as it saves loading extra drivers etc. All this has taken place in 2K perhaps XP will be more amenable.

I know this is a Canon thread, but I've just bought a 2nd hand Sony DSC-F707 and the attached pic was taken with most things on auto except I set the speed to 100ASA. TTL flash metering.

The Sony F707 camera is good too Al. I've seen some very impressive night.(low light), shots done with the Sony. I had a tough decision deciding between the Sony or the Canon G2.

Got the download ( via Cardreader ) procedure working fine via the Canon File viewer utility. I havent had to load any extra drivers etc so that is a plus feature. The.raw images load straight into Photoshop.
As an aside my cardreader (USB 1) has been plugged into a USB 2 port and much to my surprise the download speed has increased considerably. Thought the peripheral device had to be USB 2 also to gain any improvement in data transfer?

Thanks I spotted that on DP review a few days ago, its not a problem I've had to contend with so far. Weather has been so poor over here that I've hardly been outdoors!

The patch for the file viewer doesnt seem to have appeared yet. I've been having a play with Zoombrowser and it does a good job for somebody who hasnt got access to PS.

I've attached a shot I took using the camera out of the box and it coped pretty well. The controls are much simpler than my previous Olympus a lot of the more commonly used stuff being operated by buttons which save you hunting through the menus which has been a real pain with digital cameras in the past.

Battery life is excellent which is also the case with the G2 I understand. Theres a lot of info on the Canon forum in DP Review mostly good although there have been some focusing complaints. The software suite is pretty good although I use a card reader for downloads. I tried the Bibble prog for downloading .raw files but I couldnt get it to work at all so I just use the supplied Canon utility.
