    Campeche, Mexico, 2012...this was very surreal, that statue is as big as it looks, so it seemed obvious to make the photo seem surreal too

    Canon G16 .. thanks for the headsup .. have never seen a point and shoot with features like a full blown SLR.

    do you shoot in combo raw/jpg mode? pretty handy but takes up a butt load of space.
    which can be also said about trying to bring along a full size digital camera with extra lens.

    Again, great photographs, thanks for all the advice too ;)

    I bought a camera a year ago, a dmc fz62... and I understand now why having the possibility to shoot in RAW is important!

    It's a nice camera for a noob and when my girlfriend takes it, she takes good shots :)
    I never seem to snap a good picture with it ... :lol3


    I still need to catch-up on your RTW adventures ... thanks for bringing us along. :freaky

    I can think of a lot worse things to do than buying you lunch. If you do make it to Kelowna in July/August I'm good for it. You may need to sweeten the deal with a couple of road trip stories though...:1drink

    with the G16, i shoot in auto mode when i'm riding or for quick shots and keep it in Jpeg, but when its in programmed modes (P/ Tv/ Av/ M) i have it set for Raw, these are the modes you'll use when trying for a better shot and the G16 holds your preferences like this.

    Have I told you lately that I hate your guts? :fyyff

    I'm sitting here battling a serious bout of Bronchitis. It's really messing with my asthma. :cry And it's 70F and beautiful outside, too.

    I'm sure Jenn's not-to-happy pic was related to the temperature. Maybe she should test some gear? Otherwise, you'll never hear the end of it. :whip
