I broke down and got a Canon A710 IS and, like the reviewers say, it doesn’t weigh much, it didn’t cost much, it has a great big zoom and seems to take OK pictures. There’s nothing very inspiring about it and I would probably have been willing to pay twice as much for something with RAW and more interesting glass and so on, but apparently the camera biz has walked away from the high-end compact.
Anyhow, that’s the Canon on yesterday’s flowers, and here are some travel shots.
Yes, what follows is yet another photo of San Francisco from the air. Do people ever give me the weirdest looks when I start snapping shots out the window. Hey, I got a not-bad view of Vancouver on the way down.
I guess the camera will do. But gosh, I loved that Canon S70.
