Small camera with big potential
on 7 May 2014
I now carry this camera with me daily, I keep it in the glove box where it is ready to go.
It gives a great image quality, the shots I bin are my fault - one way or another - the exposures are spot on as is white balance. I normally leave it on the Programme setting and occasionally use Aperture Priority, but there are lots of adjustments that can be made. My favorites are the ND filter, use of manual focusing via the lens ring and HDR setting for difficult lighting conditions. Adjustments and Menus can be easily accessed via the touch screen or buttons on the camera's rear.
For a Canon user the Menus are intuitive and easy to use.
A NOTE on battery life. The number of shots per charge seems to improve with charging cycles, I now easily get a days shooting from a single fully charged battery (but I do carry a spare). Whilst this camera uses the NB-L6 battery it is rated as providing 3.7V - 1060mAh and is marked as NB-6LH. It is important to use a genuine Canon battery of the correct rateing.
This is an expensive option but it is a worthwhile investment.
I have spent some time looking for a suitable carry case and have found the Lowepro REZO 20 a perfect fit.
