New Camera

We have been enjoying using our new Canon 7D DSLR. Much better autofocus than our aging 20D, a bigger viewfinder and other treats.

One aspect that is still a bit hard to grasp is the high ISO capabilities. The picture below was taken at night, hand-held, in very dark conditions. 12,800 ISO. To somebody coming from a film background, where 3200 was the highest speed film I ever used (once) and 800 was really high speed, this offers unprecedented ability to take pics when it's darker than you can easily see...
