Testing the little ripper.

Posted by mervfrench on May 4, 2010

I recently bought a Canon S90 compact for happy snaps. Nothing worse than lugging a DSLR around when you know your just getting a few family holiday snaps.

It has loads of features, 10mp  shoots RAW and fits in your shirt pocket , a little ripper.

See what these guys have to say about it here .

Anyway here’s a happy snap taken with it . 3 shots,  hand held at 6mm ( 28equiv. ) ,  f3.5,   ISO 125 ,   1/60th sec,   and stitched in PTGUI.

We went down for a beer at the marina in Pt. Douglas  Qld. and I snapped this on the way out. Not too bad all thing’s considered.

    Little tacker has some balls eh Merv! Sweet shot mate!

  2. I bought the same little ripper in Thailand to have a compact for happy snaps and I reckon it’s a great camera! Really good compact, had a lot of fun with it shooting happy snaps of me and friends – something I would normally never do as I would not be carrying my SLR and so get no photos. Great little camera, could do with HD video though.

    Gotta be happy with that – I like the image too. Yet another photo taken near a pub hehe.

  4. Looks pretty good! I have a P&S Panasonic Lumix FZ35, I chose it for the beautiful Leica lens and the fact that it had a real viewfinder. It takes great pics (in RAW0 but unfortunately the viewfinder looks as though it is made from the bottom of a coke bottle!

  5. Awesome image from a compact!

  6. Really good. I wouldn’t have guessed it was taken using a happy snappy. Nice shot Merv.
