USA Pro Cycling Challenge prologue shot with G12
Aug 23, 2011

I went to the prologue of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge today. It was a 5 mile TT starting in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs CO. What a beautiful place to hold a bike race!

I wasn't sure how the G12 would do, but I was pretty happy with the performance.

I have to stop comparing it to a DSLR, because it's not. But, since I was on my bike, my big old 40D was out of the question. So, had it not been for this great little camera, I would have got no pictures of the race. To me, the portability of the G12 is it's greatest asset, and the pictures don't exactly suck!

Here are a few examples:

This shot was just slightly out of focus, but a little unsharp mask helped it. I just loved the composition, so I added it anyway.
