    G10 cycling trip

    Hi all,

    I just finished a few weeks of cycling in Japan and brought a new G10 along for the ride. It was tough leaving the dslr at home, but I'm very happy with this little guy.

    Though, if I were doing it over I would leave the camping hammock behind and use the space for a G1 and lenses.

    Also, dpreview has their G10 review up now here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canong10/ - nothing earthshattering and draws the same conclusions about the G10 vs LX3 as I've been seeing here (though both basically on par depending on your shooting style).

    Here is a wooden gate in Miyajima (near Hiroshima)



    and some mountains in Shikoku

    Lovely shots, Oliver
    Interesting Juxta position of the classic Tori gate and the Orange Dozer.
    Why move this thread? Is not a powershot G10 a small sensor camera?

    My fault I thought I saw G1 and moved it . My bad it's going back to it's home. My glasses must have been fogged

    Being tiddy can sometimes get you in trouble. LOL
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    So clearly the pics are good enough to have been 4/3 anyway

    It is the Seto sea.. Gates (Torii) are used to mark the approach and entrances to shrines .Miyajima means shrine island.. Oliver shot is taken as the tide is going out ...

    Geez, you had to remind me - what a gem those are. Probably the camera most likely to lure me back to film scanning. That and the Contax T. Must resist...

    nice gate shot
