Well, that was a quick experiment, and expensive at that. While trying to shoot at the beach, I crash landed the camera I bought yesterday a couple too many times. Now the lens doesn't open and the camera is DOA. That set me back $150 and some time trying to figure out whether this is financially worth it. Mild heart attack.
On that note, if you have a spare Canon camera that you don't care about, I'll take it up on my kite and give you a print. Drop me a line. Even better, if you have a Pentax W30 or W60 you want to sell, I'm in the market for an affordable one.
Camera: Canon SX100IS Light: Sunny ISO: 100 Exposure: f4.5 @ 1/1250 sec.
