Yesterday I bit the bullet and bought a Canon g10. I had been thinking about it for quite a while and the planned diving trip in October just made me decide. I will buy an underwater housing and an underwater strobe. I will try to learn a bit of underwater photography during the summer vacation in Spain.
Anyway, after the first tests with the camera I could not be happier. I took a couple of sunset pictures yesterday and there is almost no noise. Since I shot raw I could recover lots of detail from the shadows. Today I took some flower pictures taking the advantage of the high depth of field that the small sensor provides. I love the color and detail and I think I will be taking the camera with me everyday.
