Michigan trip with ELPH 360HS
6

I bought this camera three years ago as a compact to supplement my nicer gear. I actually bought two of them for $128 each from the Canon refurb store. I gave one to my friend as a gift who I visit in Michigan each year. We go mountain biking, hiking, canoeing and site seeing when we meet up. This year we spent a day checking out sites along Lake Michigan.

To get the best out of this little camera, I set the contrast all the way down, -1/3 exposure and lock ISO at 80. Otherwise I find the exposure too hot and contrasty. Too easy to blow out highlights from the small sensor.
