A Canon developed 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and DiG!C II combine to deliver stunning professional quality photographs. The ultra compact, lightweight and super stylish design includes Canon's simple to use Mode Dial for creative photography and picture taking fun.
My trusty sidekick for the last few years has been a Canon G5 and I found the EOS to be almost as easy to use, but with many more useful features.
I was on my 14th visit to Norfolk Island and I was able to take shots of many familiar scenes for comparison. It worked and worked well, the 10 Megapixels certainly add up to sometimes that ‘bigger is better’.
Most of us do not understand all the tech talk that the professionals use, so I will let the results do the talking. I have included some images in the Photo Gallery. Remember these have been severely downsized to 800 pixels wide, but even at that, I think they still look good.
For the mature traveller the unit is ideal, light and soon easy to use (just practice for an hour or so at home). You can get high quality images that will delight the serious amateur.
Did I find fault? The inbuilt flash is a bit insipid and I would definitely suggest that you get an add-on flash for indoor and low light shots.
