Here are a few pics from my day at the park. Very little editing involved. I read the forum rules of 3 pic max unless others request more...so if you want to see more, just ask :-)

Feel free to post some of yours from your sx100is. I'd love to check out the variety!

This is the inside of an oak tree that was cut down some time ago. I just loved it's beauty.

This is a photo i took yesterday afternoon right before the tornados hit Memphis. The cloud coverage was unreal. These photos are unedited.

And this pic was taken right after that one during a lighting strike that filled the sky up like it was the middle of the afternoon.

This was quite an intense storm system that came through the midsouth. "We" were not hit by a tornado near our home, but the Memphis area got it's share of damage and devastation. The death toll for Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky right now is at 48. Please keep these families in your prayers. Thank you. Dawn

I am amazed how people can sustain that kind of horrible experience. I have been in two major earthquakes and I tell you I can't be near an area that is prone to earthquakes.....

Count your blessings !

I know, right. I lived in Illionis as a child and we had horrible tornados, but we had basements. One time, I stood at our bay window and literally watched a twister wind it's way down our street until my mom yanked me into the basement. We were not touched, but the house RIGHT next door had the entire roof peeled off as if by a can opener. I was astonished by the force of nature. Since then I have taken tornados very seriously.

Lived in Cali for 3 years, but never had any quakes, thankfully!

This is what I can't understand, why? why? the building codes have not adapted to tornadoes in that area.

It has been proven that houses that are built have of the house underground, has a larger survival rate, or at least build the house against a mound of man made hill. Instead, they build very fragile houses, and the consequences are devastating

Thanks for posting some Nice Scapes......

I can't stop myself to ask a question about this camera,

I love to shoot in TV, AV mode in SLR, So what I want to know badly:

Is there any option to move the Center Auto focus frame to any side of the LCD, So user can keep their subject to any side of the frame with perfectly focused ?

& this will probably in TV & AV mode.....

Hope I clearly explained......Waitin for your response.
Thanks in Advnace.

No way to select anything but the center focus point(or face recog). You need to focus, and recompose to off-center your subject.

This is three images stitched in CS3, then cropped a bit for composition. I'm pretty happy with the SX for a pocketable ultra-zoom.

I am a Canon user have several PS and 3 high end Dig SLR. And I can tell you that this camera is nowhere near the previous model, yes it has a larger LCD, and 10x zoom so what.

The meter reader sucks, the menu wheel is very sensitive it keeps moving the setting at the slightest touch

The only reason (sorry) I bought it was because the zoom since I went on a trip and didn't want to take my expensive SLR. My first choice was G9 but too darn expensive the market is driving its price above MSRP

Straight out of the box - no cropping, no color correction, nada.

I love this camera, with all it's little sensitivities and difficulties ... love it.

The SX100 has a fair number of fans on Flickr, producing lovely work.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, so those negatives that I am reading IMHO a matter of mismatched expectations.

still the SX100IS is a good camera for what it does.....

if I need higher (or better...) quality - color, sharpness, IQ etc etc.... I will go for a 5D or a 40D and use with L lenses. which explains the existence of both series

I think so many folks expect way too much from a camera that is selling for such a small amount of money. Though I don't own an sx100, I have sure seen some beautiful photos that were made with them. Check message #12!

It takes courage to be humble on knowing what is the realistic expectation and even more courage to admit mis-expectation.

My personal experience has been reasonably positive, and still learning more on working it's function.

More photos (and spare batteries) later....
