A Walk Through Sun City Lincoln Hills

Often, I don't feel like carrying my DSLR when we go for a walk, so I miss a lot of interesting shots.  I decided it was time for a point-and-shoot.
I found a nice little Powershot at Costco, not too expensive, just right I thought.
But then I saw a waterproof Nikon Coolpix.  Twice as expensive but it also had a built in GPS.
No viewfinder, though, and I do find it hard to frame a good image with the LCD, especially in sunlight.
And it even takes video!

I had visions of taking pictures beside a raging waterfall, while snorkeling and  while kayaking, so I bought it and you can see the results above.  I am amazed at the quality of that little camera.  I'll keep my Canon 50D, though.
Now all I have to do is find some waterfalls, snorkeling and kayaking.


This is what the wold looks like through the lens of my new camera, check out other views of our world at

Hmmm, I've been wondering to put on my list. Nice shots, I'll have to see what the GPS does for a person.

I bought my little Canon Powershot P&S primarily for its HD video capabilities. Why would a camera need a GPS though?

Are you going to Hawaii? It does take great pictures. (I think a big part of the reason is the photographer though.)

Very nice pics with your new camera. I, too, miss viewfinders, but few cameras have them any more.
