soon my old camera was put on craigslist/ksl and then i got down to some serious research. i narrowed it down to a panasonic lumix TS2 (because its impervious to damage, including water and dropping it, and thats just cool) and the more advanced canon powershot S90.
after staying up all night reading all the info out there on the internets i decided on the amazing S90. mostly for these features:
- shoots in RAW (this is perfect for doing HDR)
- amazing low light capabilities
- full manual controls
- awesome control dials! one on the front lens and a small one on the back!
really this thing is just packed full of high end bells and whistles. it gives you great control and every picture just looks amazing. i am very impressed.
ive only had it for a few hours so im still getting the hang of it but here are a few test pics.
and here is my first attempts at HDR
the first two are green.. i explained it here.
