Canon S5is,just purchased on line - to replace the one I gave to my daughter 2 Christmas's ago. MM range = 35-430mm with IS.
Now this compliments the other camera in the P+S bag(Nikon coolpix 8400 wth wide nikon glass converter)which can zoom from 17/18mm to 35mm
I have NOT been useing my 8400 - since all my many new equipment... so now...with a re-got Canon S5is ... it's one of my formitable outfits!(get useing it again)!
*along with my Olympus E-PL1 outfit 28-300mm + 2x(to shoot square) *my Fuji S2 and all my MF lenses(about 12 lenses) *My Nikon d5100 compleat outfit ;from round image to 3000mm *my Canon A640...for Kayaking + *and my WITH ME ALL THE TIME camera(Nikon S6200)...in my phone/waist case. *Oh - and my Yashica 124G - for film to digital (medium format film)
You would think - the S30 (or new 40)would be the pick...The S30 I had was one of my hardest cameras - to do good with. S5is is kind of the opposite ; with just a little more thinking(faster shutter speed)i can get 80+% over S30is 50%
Somehow - I don't want to let go ... that P+S outfit ...went on so many trips - and it can still do quite good...or ;good enough...
I will share in useing it in (rotation) with other outfits - namely; D5100 outfit.
