Trying Out My New Camera

Yesterday I purchased yet another digital camera. This time I went for a Canon G10 on the advice from a friend. The idea was to get a high quality compact camera that could produce high resolution photos. I occasionally get asked for copies of my musician photos and they always want high rez shots, which my dear little Panasonic was incapable of producing. So, I thought I should buy a new camera.

Anyway I tested it out today in various situations and overall I'm very pleased with the results. The true test will be when I go to the Ryan Adams concert at the end of this month. Can it give me good crisp concert photos in low light situations? We'll see...

Anyway, below are some of the photos I snapped today.

Actually I think the Panasonic does better macros than the Canon...

Happy New Year to you as well Kay.

As for Ryan Adams, I do hope the lighting is better than the last time I saw him, otherwise it will be pointless taking the camera.
