Scaling Down

I was getting a bit weary of lugging around the Nikon Howitzer every time I wanted better image quality and more manual control than an iPhone. Enter the Canon G15. Plenty of pixel power, manual control, 1080p video and small enough to clip onto my belt. Granted, the sensor is smaller than my fingernail, but I can adjust my thinking to compensate for that. Opening the images in Camera Raw allows me to interpolate files size up to 6144 x 4608 @ 300 ppi.  81 megabytes to play with and re-interpolate. Not bad. 

Now, if I can just figure out how to hold the damn little thing with my big catcher's-mitt paws.

Thus spake the rabbit.

You got to first base! (I'm sorry. It was just too easy.) Enjoy the new camera! Given these gorgeous shots, I'm going to enjoy it too.

The real test comes at Cruise Night. There's a certain street cred that comes with walking around with ten pounds of camera. Then again, it's less imposing if you point at someone. We'll see.
