PowerShot S400

I decided it was time for a digital camera upgrade. The PowerShot S100 has been a wonderful camera, but the new S400 has almost double the resolution, as well as more manual controls and a longer zoom lens with the same aperture range. The result seems to be insanely detailed pictures. With the full original files (1-2MB JPEGs) you can enlarge a photo of a squirrel to fill the whole screen and see every individual hair on his body. I think I’m going to be quite happy taking the S400 to England as my only still camera for the vacation. The best part is, the camera is slightly smaller and lighter than the S100, about the size of a packet of cigarettes…
