SX260 HS - only camera for trip to Vietnam.

Just returned from a trip to Vietnam using only the SX260 pocket zoom, here is some thoughts and images.

Brilliant colors, and fantastic zoom, useful wide angle, unobtrusive and fairly fast.

One weakness is the slow lens, becasue to compensate the camera uses high ISO which in itself is ok as ISO up to 1600 is ok for moderate size prints, but this means that it must use a slow shutter speed which is also ok as the IS is incredibly good, with the ability to hand hold down to about 1/4sec, but the down side is that if you have moving subjects in low light it will be impossible to stop the blur happening.

The setting used: P mode, EV=-.3, iContrast=ON, My Colors: Contrast=+1

Here is some examples.

Hay Cart

Riverfront Properties

Icecream Sundae

River Sunset

Tutti Fruiti

The Lounge

Thanks for looking
