    A nice selection - I see why you liked the S3.

    Thanks very much! All of my pictures are straight out of the camera (manual mode though)

    PS: I used to live in Perth and Geraldton back in late 1981 - early 1982. Rest of the time in Sydney. :)

    I had an S3 IS for a few years before gifting it to a niece, who still uses it to this very day. It still amazes me how fast that lens was (f2.7 to 3.5) and how highly effective its image stabilization was. An excellent compact camera in its day and still a valid option for many with great image quality.

    Thanks - Manual mode, vivid, I'd have the aperture at 2.7 (lowest) always and adjust shutter speed by looking at the histogram. In this shot, I had to zoom because it was a rabbit. I was really far. Hope I helped.

    These dogs had to only look at the sheep to keep them from coming over to us. To see non verbal communication at this raw form was a unique experience. They seemed very interested in us. It was a fun 10 minutes, so much so that only this one picture was taken.

    Oregon has such an awesome coastline (unlike Texas). Would love to see photos of that beauty there! One of the places I really want to visit is Crater Lake! So if by any chance you are there, take a few photos!!
