    Nice photos. I picked up a 610 (and now a 620) because of the poor low light performance of my S1-IS. Very nice camera...

    Thanks for sharing the pictures Patrick. I ordered this camera just last week and am waiting on it to arrive. I paid $186 for it new and bought it because a friend of mine recommended it. He has one and has even bought 2 more as gifts.

    I'm very excited about getting it and yet a bit worried. I've read online about the A18 error (or whatever it's called) and have my fingers crossed that I'll miss that problem.

    I want to pick up a nice camera case to carry it around in. Any recommendations?

    Thanks for posting these pics.

    Did you use the stock lens or any special converters?

    Brad,

    I just have a small padded bag (holds the camera snug, and as a pocket for one extra set of batteries. I'll try to find name of the bag maker when I get home tonight. I've been using it since I had the Canon A70, same form factor.

    Dave, I was just using the stock lens, out-of-the-box. Since it was misting all over the place at Niagra Falls, I didn't see the need for special converters, etc, lest they get wet/ruined. (Plus, I don't have any special knick-knacks for this camera. Heh).

    Having a Canon A95, I know exactly what the 610/620 are capable of and if anyone is need of a new P&S digital I couldnt suggest anything else for the money. Canon is top notch IMO.

    Thanks for the link Patrick. My camera arrived this evening and already I'm having fun with it. Now I need a new card since the one that came with only takes 8 pictures.

    Nice shots. Proof that you don't need a fancy schmancy camera to take nice photos. You just need yourself, a good eye and a little bit of talent. [​IMG]

    My first digital camera was a simple point & shoot Olympus. I was getting very good results with it.
