Canon A710 test shots

These are mostly test shots with the Canon A710 ISCanon A710, which is a small 7-megapixel point & shoot with full manual controls in addition to a 6x telephoto zoom lens and very effective image stabilization, superceded by the similar but more capable Canon A720 ISCanon A720, reviewed here.

    The first few shots, at the bottom, were mainly taken indoors.  ISO 800 is very grainy, but the anti-shake is very effective for low-light, slow-shutter photos.  Will stick to lower ISOs most of the time.  Later I found that image stabilization helps to get good low-light shots at iso200, in fact.

    This is a sort of photoblog of random images.
Sample of widest angle vs Sample of fully-zoomed angle of same subject.

* * * More recent a710 shots are found at: Berkeley Bay, Bay Bridge Dec.'07, Palace of Fine Arts park, Pas de Duo (iso 800 but used Noiseware), Chancellor's Reception, Dogpark2, Lunch inside with no flash, Point Molate recent shots, Luncheon gallery (flash), , and the Dogpark1 gallery. * * *
