5.0 out of 5 stars Great for holidays, 3 July 2010
I'm fairly serious about photography. I have a couple of DSLRs, a Powershot G9, a Fuji waterproof camera, and this Powershot SX210 IS. I bought this because it's small enough to fit in the pocket of my shorts yet has a fantastic zoom range (and importantly is pretty good at the wide angle end) and gives full control - if you want it - over aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc; but I can switch it to full automatic when asking others to take photos of me. So it really is a perfect holiday camera for the photography enthusiast who doesn't want to take all his kit on holiday!

If anything, 14.1MP is a bit excessive - large file sizes and not much different in terms of quality from a 10… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally brilliant, 6 Nov 2008
This is probably the best book for photographers that I have ever read (and I have a big shelf full of photography books). It's written in a very readable style and tackles pretty much any lighting situation you might face with your camera.

It's particularly good for its simple and memorable explanation of lighting portraits, and is completely indispensible for anyone who photographs "products", e.g. for selling on ebay. (Have you ever tried to take a decent picture of a coin, a metal ball, or a textured item of clothing? It can be really tricky to represent things as they really are - this book shows you how to do it.)

I can't recommend this book enough: if you are… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 29 Sep 2007
Wow, I am going to have so much fun with my G9! It arrived 24 hours ago and I've barely had it switched off since. My new G9 is a companion to my dSLR; it's going to be great for taking more spontaneous, creative photographs in places where I simply wouldn't take my dSLR & equipment.

The first thing you notice when you take the G9 out of the box is its solid contruction. This is a very sturdy, well contructed camera. It's quite heavy (reassuringly so) and is too big to fit into a shirt or trouser pocket, but will easily slip into a jacket pocket. The G9 feels like it will last for years of pretty hardcore use.

I've been a Canon user for a few years, so I found the menu… Read more
