I bought a new camera yesterday as a back up to my 400D, it's the IXUS 850 IS it's a pretty nice little camera and does a pretty good job, especially the IS, i was originally gonna get the F31fd but had a tuff time finding one, but i will say that IS makes up for high ISO,, all these shots in the museum are hand held at around 1/8 without flash, and check the last one out at my friends shop in his stockroom that was taken at 0.6, i am glad i purchased this camera

Hercules, nice to see our fellows from antiquity!

I'm sure you already know the following: I'd suggest metering at the highlights using the spot or central metering at contrasty scenes like #1, #2 and #4 and thenadjusting the shadows at PS ; ) Avoiding thewideend (28mm equivalent) of the lens, when not necessary, also brings avoiding some undesired distortions in such close indoors shots. However this requires smaller aperture which calls for longer exposure. IS is a great feature in anyway!

Again, πολύ καλός arkadaş
