Happy New Year
. . . and now to go and watch Fiona unwrap her gifts. Maybe I'll post some pictures. I do hope you are all having as wonderful a Christmas as I am.
|Shot in California, lots of luck here. This would make a good enlargement.|
|Love the moment, but it is clearly soft when enlarged.|
|The colour is off but I love the moment. It's a good file.|
|I still shoot news, now for the Web. The Fuji delivers.|
|See it; Shoot it. I love my little Fuji HS10.|
|Almost all pictures can be helped by a little Photoshop.|
|At a minimum, this photo needed white and black points set.|
|Love that f/2.0 wide angle.|
|A small camera is always handy. My Canon S90 is rarely far away.|
Pros: About as compact as a deck of cards, the S95 looks like any other point-and-shoot, but its photos are lovely enough that even people used to carrying bulkier, more advanced digital SLRs will be impressed. Although it's the same size as other cameras, the body feels particularly solid, well-made.
This camera from Canon Inc. has an unusually large sensor for a small camera, which means clearer, sharper pictures, especially in low light. It takes generally beautiful shots and does a better job of blurring the background than other point-and-shoots. The camera also shoots HD video (1280 x 720) and has an HDMI port, enabling people to connect the camera directly to a high-definition television. Serious photographers looking for a lighter camera will enjoy the various manual controls.
|Under low light levels, the Canon S90 sings.|
|A long lens is sometimes one's biggest need. Think Fuji HS10.|
|Shot with my Canon S90. S95 is latest version.|
|Canon S90 set to automatic and hand-held. Image enhanced in Photoshop.|
|Shot at dusk and the sky darkened in Photoshop.|
|After getting permission, I shot the train lights from behind. Note the rink.|
