Only another 3124 combinations to go.....
The Sepia setting is REALLY cool
The point I'm trying to make is that you have thousands of different configuration possibilities with the #16, and all you need to do to set them is to plug your camera into your PC. Everything is plug-and-play - the setup GUI (program) communicates directly with the #16 and sets the values that YOU want.
The #11 comes as it is. There are a handful of different firmware versions, but that's it. It appears that development of the #11 (and #18) has come to a halt, whereas the #16 has suddenly made a gigantic leap forwards.
I still have a few #11s. I loved them in their days, but I wouldn't buy them again today.
This post is mainly aimed at newcomers. You are lucky, you know both cameras.
