Short Walk With New Camera

I cannot carry around the big camera with the extra lense all the time, so I decided on getting a compact superzoom camera for the every day use. It wasn’t easy to decide! Do I need full HD video? No! RAW and jpg? Would be great, but rarely any has it. Like that I’d probably could have compared cameras fo ever. In the end I bought the canon powershot SX 10IS.
I couldn’t wait till the weekend. The next morning on my way to work I walked along the lake and tried it. I have to say that I need some more practice: focusing and changing settings on the fly has not worked properly all the time. But I didn’t have much time and the light was not very good.
But anyways, here are some impressions:
