My shutter bug brother Dan at D2 Photography had the following technical question to ask:
Would you recommend a G10 for your photographer buddy? I'm thinkin' it would be nice to ditch the heavy load from time to time. And it seems like a perfectly competent camera.
I love the G10! It's light, compact, and the pictures come out absolutely amazing! But, don't get me wrong, there are disadvantages about using a smaller camera. The lens isn't the greatest. No matter what anyone tells you, the G1o is still only a point and shoot--just maybe on steroids. The built in 2.8 is great, but without sticks, you're going to have a hard time opening up that wide in ambient places, especially with the body being so small, so using the flash is sometimes forced upon. Shooting outdoors, there were times I wish I could screw on an extra ND filter so I could open up a bit wider to get more depth, but that's not an option. It's also slow. And I mean SLOW! There's a 1 to 2 second delay between each shot after you press the shutter. It will take a bit of getting used to, but the potential to get great shots is definitely at your finger tips. It's a great camera. You're more than welcome to borrow mine for a week and test it out! Just let me know, buddy!
My good friend James from CTV in Saskatoon, Canada sent me an email earlier and had this to ask:
Dude, what's the nastiest thing you've ever eaten while travelling?
Raw seal blubber in Iqaluit, North West Territory's Canada.
Julie from Fox News in Washington DC emailed with this question:
Ron, how come you have so many female readers on your blog?
I dunno, maybe cuz I'm a stud muffin that cries while watching Titanic?
Keep the questoins comin'!
