Default HS10 gets "the" shot in Bar Harbor......

It was a "presidential" weekend in town this weekend. Just kept the camera in the car on auto, and just happened upon this scene, Pres & first lady out for dinner.....



Secret Service agents actually do smile.....





And here come the fleet of Suburbans.......








And the money shot......



Really needed the 30X zoom.

Umm, is it my eyes, or what. None of these looks in focus to me.

Yes a little unsharp , but still the first HS10 to get the president on the sensor.

Is it just me or do the casual look agents look even more obvious than when they are in suits?

Yes they are! Early in the week when some of them were here scoping things out, they stopped in to a friends cafe near the airport, and even though they were off duty, one denied being an agent when queried, but another fessed up and asked if it was that obvious because they were trying to "fit in". They asked a few things, like how the cell phone service is around here, which can be pretty spotty around the island - they later erected their own temporary cell phone tower at the president's hotel (a Holiday Inn).
