The orchid on our back porch. I have plenty of orchids to shoot because my inlaws are in the business. This shot is kind of plain, but it can make a real nice shot sometimes to backlight these phalenopsis (the kind that is real flat) and shoot up close with the light coming through the petals. I'll see if I can borrow a white one and shoot it for the high key challenge, if I have a little time to fool with it one afternoon.

I am looking at this camera very seriously as an upgrade from my A610. I am very happy with my camera but the LCD screen is failing and it's time to get a new camera. I don't really want the 10 megapixels but it has all the features I want: big optical zoom,AA batteries, viewfinder and vari-angle LCD.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"My only gripe about the A610 is the lousy sound quality in video clips. This is a problem with all A series cameras. How is the sound quality of this camera?

Is the viewfinder optical or electronic? I often use it in low light when holding the camera against my face for more stability. How does it work in low light conditions?

I've no SX10, but a SX1 - sound is great, it's STEREO, much better then Panasonics MONO.

EVF is electronic - 235.000 pixel - you cannot build an optical for 20x - 80x zoom. Of curse it works perfectly in low light conditions.

Hi Doc-

The colors look very muted or down toned. Thanks.
