Not much happening but I figured I needed to get March going on here. I've been playing with a Canon Powershot G1X as a back up camera and very small carry around option. It has a pretty big sensor, bigger then 4/3 and smaller than APS-C, with a 1.85X crop factor (compared to 2X for 4/3 and 1.6 for APS-C). The lens is the equivalent of 28-112mm but a relatively slow f/2.8-5.8,
The typical Powershot interface is not my favorite but I do like the image quality. Here is a shot of a Sycamore tree I made to test out the lens followed by a 100% crop of a portion of the image.
|50mm eq., f/6.3, 1/500 sec., ISO 200|
This next shot was made this past Wednesday when we broke a temperature record by 13 degrees with a high temperature of 81 degrees. This is a small patch of blue eyed grass which I will keep photographing as it progresses to blossoms.

These last two were made this morning on a walk up along the old Champlain Canal North of Waterford, New York. Both also with the 5D Mark III and 100mm f/2.8 macro lens.
