The missus and I got a new point and shoot camera for Christmas.....a Canon SX 260 HS. This will replace our old Fuji Film FinePix A320......3.2 megapixels, with very few shooting options.....which stills works good after 10 years. The new camera will also replace my underwater Sea & Sea Motor Marine EX II 35mm.......I already have an Ikelite housing on order.

Thought I would post 2 comparison pictures......the new camera against my Rebel T1i (500D) with a 75-300mm lens.

Both pictures were taken through my kitchen window. The Rebel zoomed out to 300 mm, and the SX 260 zoomed out to the maximum optical zoom of 20x. Both cameras were set up for 400 ISO, and cloudy white balance.

Because of "communication" problem, the Rebel telephoto lens will only take pictures at the full open aperture......I gotta get that problem fixed. The Rebel photo was shot at a 5.6 aperture, and the SX 260 was wide open at 6.8. That might account for a little better DOF with the SX 260.

The shutter speed on the Rebel was 1/200, and SX 260 was 1/100.

1 other variable.....the SX 260 has Image Stabilization, and the Rebel telephoto does not have that nicety.

So 1st, the Rebel:

Not too shabby for a $200 point and shoot camera:

I know the point and shoot cameras can’t compare to most of the DSLR cameras but for the small size and lighter weight they are hard to beat. I use a Canon SX 160 IS with my old Canon SX 110 IS as a backup. I take photos for my own pleasure, not to win photo contests, so for me it’s point and shoot all the way.

I love digital photography and computers. I can take as many photos as I want without having to worry about the cost of developing film and the cost of prints.

I use a Nikon D90 and and we're still learning how to use the whistles and bells. But it takes great pix and at the end of each day's shooting we download into the laptop and are ready for the next day's shoot.

Try to follow the rule of thirds on landscapes.
1/3 sky, 2/3 land or water. Or 2/3 sky, 1/3 land or water.


thanks for the advice !

How do you down load or upload from the camera?

That's a great picture, Turbs. I like the colors against a silhouette foreground like that.

I almost never see a sky like that. But, driving home from work in early January I got a little lucky so I pulled over and snapped this. I wish it had been more dramatic, but the color is what caught my eye.
