Curious to see what Canon’s new PowerShot G7 looks like when taken out from under the ever-loving gaze of meticulous press photos? Well, thanks to another eager Flickr user, you can get some vicarious hands-on kicks and an idea of how it performs to boot. The unboxing pics give a good look at the front and back of the cam, with the box shot revealing Canon’s generous choice of SD card in the bundle — really, who needs more than 32MB with a 10 megapixel camera? Also up for your perusal are a selection of sample pics taken with the G7, showing off the camera’s performance at various settings and our photographer friend’s excessively geeky but sadly familiar book collection. Check the link below for all the goodies.
Would you buy an expensive DSLR, expensive lenses, and lots of filters, when you can get similar effects with just a cheap compact camera and cheap tripod?
If you visit here regularly, you’ve probably noticed that I post a lot of High Dynamic Range, or HDR, stuff these days. Even if you don’t, you’ve likely seen HDR photos all around the net as photographers both pro and amateur experiment with this emerging artistic format. Personally, I was pointed to it earlier this year by a fellow photographer & friend, Darren, and I’ve been having a ton of fun with it since.
