    Oh, and it'll focus at 14''. That's like 7x magnification

    Nah...I'd doubt that he'd want external zooming on his 16-740mm []

    Haha the energy of your girl is great! Very nice![]


    I think the picture would be even better with some bouncing flash.


    Anyway it looks like a lot of fun!

    John, I bet you just went to the concert to get a picture of her showing her moves. This isn't a coincidence. ;-)


    Hahah. Great!

This has me considering a PowerShot S90, which seems to be a good, pocket-sizedblend of convenience and control with RAW capability.

    I ordered a new PowerShot S95 yesterday, and it's in my hands as of a few minutes ago. []
    <div>The battery is still charging, so I haven't powered it on yet...but wow, this thing is tiny! It's about the size of the LC-E6 battery charger for my 7D (smaller than mine and my wife's iPhones stacked together). 10 megapixels, a nice f/2 lens (at the wide end, and albeit limited a 4.6x crop sensor), good manual controls, shoots RAW,and fits quite easily in my pocket. Now I should never have an excuse to be without a camera!</div>
