Just some camera stuff...
I received my griptastic additions to my G9 last week and adhesed them to the camera.
The grip, for the front.
And the thumb rest, for the back.
I ordered these after seeing them here, www.mycanong7.com/65801/460401.html. 50% for the coolness of the machined aluminum look, and 50% for the improved grip.
I also found a cheap case at Target, which will hold just enough camera + battery for my needs.
True testing will commence tomorrow, but I'm really enjoying the zoom with image stabilization. Observe - dimly lit room, full wide.
Dimly lit room, 6x optical zoom.
Dimly lit room, full on optical/digital combined 24x zoom.
The quality/lighting aren't great, but you can make out most of the label, and we're definitely close to film grain here, even with a small sensor packed with pixels.
Expect food pictures for the next few days...
