    Great pic... nice camera... HAND HELD SHOT... impressive. I tried that taking a picture of Reno at night. Could not do it. Had to use a tripod.

    I think that's what I need. A camera with a better lens. This is my camera...

    Nice shot, D. I'm more of a "nature girl," but if you're going to shoot a city, city lights are about the prettiest thing you can do.

    When I was shopping for a camera, I picked the best lens I could get. Lens is SOO important - compare the lens on the camera you showed, vs. that of the S2 or the newer S3.

    I've been VERY happy w/ this S2 - the IS is what allowed me to have a 1 second + shutter speed and not get too much distortion.

    :)


    Josie: I can only shoot what I see; now I see 'city' :( :-/

    hehe.

    Wow... I guess I really botched that remark. It was supposed to be a "compliment"!

    Absolutely. No picture is any better than the lense. I see you have a lower f-stop than I do. Hence the greater light collecting capability. Nice. Yeah I've been looking at camera's. I'd like one with interchangable lenses, but the cost starts going up quick. Gotta stay with a Canon though. The S50 is my third Canon.

    My S2 can have lenses attached. :) In fact, my previous A75 could as well.

    misterblu shoots with a Canon 20D. it's...fanTASTIC - but doesn't fit in a coat pocket much.

    :D

    :thup:

    I have to get an IS lens for my 20D. What does the EXIF say the focal length was? 20mm or so?

    Nice camera! :p:
