Taken with Canon Powershot SX20 IS. A camera I do
not recommend. It doesn't save uncompressed
JPGs, or raw. What was Canon thinking? The only
Canon compact I've owned and disrespect. Built
poorly with lousy firmware. A purchase I regret.
The detail is blury because the Gigapan
button-pusher rocked the camera. But there are so
many focusing options on this camera (that
don't deactivate in "manual" mode)
it took a number of trials to figure out how to
get it to behave. The camera must have a delay
after button-press, and the Gigapan also. Even so,
any interruption causes the camera to switch out
of manual focus mode. And still, it won't save
uncompressed jpgs. That on top of flimsy
construction. Also, I really miss the automatic
built-in lens cap of my A640.
