Keeping Sandra happy, more photos, more videos, more accordion playing for the Morris dancers, more newsletters for the radio club.
Henry Falkner's current gear
Love videos with 12 stills with 5- and 3-axis IS. Focusses reliably at 600mm. Excellent sound for speech AND music. Good picture quality. No niggles, very few trip-ups (with touch screen functions).
Built like a brick outhouse, versatile settings which stay put, uses STANDARD (!) AA batteries. Memory cards no longer available, but I have enough. VGA video now dated
SH-50 on steroids: Video with 12 stills with 5-axis IS, matches SH-50, higher capacity battery, added saturation control, time lapse in video and stills, plus WiFi (but for cell phones only). Watch this space.

Henry Falkner's previous gear
My first 4MP camera. Took pictures worth keeping, but has low battery life and destroys memory cards when camera switched on while changing batteries.
My first 10x zoom, used for four years. Good battery life but dies with the lens open. Sucked in dust until inner plastic front shell replaced. Some of its faults have re-surfaced in the Stylus 1.
Shadow detail better than that from the SP-570UZ. HD720p video for the first time, excellent for speech recording, large LCD, surprisingly low noise from 14MP CCD, marginal battery life for video.
BSI-CMOS sensor for the first time, battery life manageable for video. My work horse for two years, but mode dial turns too easily, and the video start button is right next to the display button.
