- Digital point and shoots have come a LONG way in the last few years.
- Much faster response time than the last generation of point and shoots
- The zoom is amazing
- It weighs about 3 ounces
The bad news:
- It still isn't quite as fast as my real Canon
- I think it will require a tripod for really long shots (but in the camera's defense, I was really drunk when I was trying to read the user guide last night, so maybe I just don't understand what I'm supposed to do to make image stabilization work)
Overall though, I think it will be great for long hikes and anywhere that I don't want to lug the big lens. And I'm very happy with the close ups. Here is the first set of pictures I took around the house and at the stick marsh last night.
I like that you can see his tongue in this one.
Overall, I think I'm gonna like the new camera, and will like it even more once I RTFM.
