Testing the SX10->

I have the SX10, the one you have is a new updated canon based onthe Sx10 and Sx1.  A superb choice you have made!

not only the optical zoom is fantastic, But macro picture's are great also with this one! and it can take movies in HD resolution!

I am jealous Wink

Ps the manual is 400+ pages on CD Rom.

I accidently started printing it Surprised in 5 language's Yell

and i couldnt cancel the print command Embarassed (at work)So i advice you not to do the same printing as i started Wink

(edit) december 15th

I was editing my message's but then got disconnected from Internet. (and couldnt log in some days) My ADSL is dooing really strange lately.

I am very happy that you finally got a digital camera! ( Did you get it as a christmass present from you'r beloved Hubbie?

I expect as soon as you go out for bird photo-taking and you have discovered what the camera is possible off , that we also see some of you'r taken photo's in National Geograpic! Wink

I couldnt check you'r blog yet ore see a cam review but ill do it this evening ( if i can stay connected to the Internet Cool).

I really hope you will have loads of fun with you'r present.

and i am really really curious to see more of the pics you took and will take.

As you are a screen capture artist on the webcams, it is really great to see that you also have a fantastic eye looking trough a camera lens! You'r first picture already shows that a lot of fine photo-art will follow.

Congratulations Fani!
