how's that sd800is treating ya? pretty sweet, huh?
Great little camera for sure! I recently got a G9 too because I wanted more pixels, more controls, RAW (although I haven't really seen the benefit of that), and also be smaller and less expensive than a dslr. The plan has worked out well for the most part. It takes better pictures but it also requires more knowledge of f-stops, apertures, etc than the 800IS. I'm still learning all that slowly but I think the G9 will essentially become a gateway drug and lead to the real deal at some point. I'd just try to get or make a really good chest harness for it while riding.
I've been interested in general since I've yet to hit the aloha camping/fishing/swimming extravaganza trip, and especially after your echo boat taxi TR with the shot of Aloha free of ice in the background.
I'm glad I didn't go ride my snowboard on them thar hills.
Those cups look horrible.
The pond skim is one of the cooler things I've seen in a TR. Ever.
I guess the future plan is to skin to Aloha when the ice is just breaking up, nail some really hungry fish, ski price and agassiz, and skip the swimmin' part.
