APOLOGIES.



Lots of very relevant issues raised. Thank you!

Most importantly, I haven't checked out the flash controls properly yet . (I've only just seen the postthat reminded me to do so.)

Anyway, I've just done some more tests and they were much better.

Here's the 'without the gizmo'....(it's a picture of Stevekins,photoshopping

Hello,

I'm also looking very seriously at the Canon Pwrsht 620, & I have a question: I know that the 620 doesn't have Image Stablization like a few other of it's siblings, but how does it perform shooting moving subjects? I read in Steve's review that it is very fast - So, does this make up for the IS? It seems to me that one ultimately must have at least two or different size cameras to cover all of the needs that are required of a fairly serious photographer. And that means for me to buy one of these at a time to fullfill this - So as not to stress my piggybank too much. Since I haven't ever purchased a digital camera (I've been waiting for the right time to take the plunge), it's kind of difficultto decide which one I want first. I'm also looking at the Canon PowerShot S2 IS, & the Nikon D50. My delimma is decidingbetween the 620 & the S2 IS. And that it seems to me that it mightcome down to a personal preference. In myopinion, it would seem that owning both of them might be a little over-kill, or too much of the same things that the S2 IS & the 620 can both do.But if anyone has any suggestions here, I would really be appreciative.

I'm a junky for repairing old photos in Adobe Photoshop Elements, & that's what has kindled the fire that I have now for photography in general. Thanks.

Hi Burtron,

I haven't tried moving subjects.

I used to hate people posting reviews just after they'd bought camera because their info was so useless - but no-one has done this worse than me :angry: ....



Anyway, herewith some links that might be useful (the one below covers the A620) too.

I liked the Nikon a lot too, but in the end having a take-with-you-anywhere camerawon the day...

With a snip of Kleenex man size tissue, stuck top and bottom over the flash with blu tak.

Not only is it just as good as the clip on, but were you to move furtherback there would be no odd shadows coming up in the background, as the whole flash area is covered.


Thephotographed face by the way, from chin to hairline - not hair - is 2.5 cm.
