Moon image with the Canon sx50, handheld.

I did this shot to test the handheld quality of shots on the Canon SX50.  Well, I suppose it is not just the image stabilisation that matters but the stability of the shooter as well.  Shot in Manual Mode, handheld, and only with optical zoom.

I'll post up the video which i shot handheld as well soon.  Interesting little camera.  For its 1200mm zoom range, certainly a useful complement to my dSLRs (Nikon F4-F6, D700)



  1. Excellent image quality for its class and the finest ultra zoom to date! You have steady hands, Ed. Brilliant for one shot handheld. :)

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
