Canon G10 on a real shoot...
I decided to try the G10 out on a real paying gig today :) I shot a series of images of Tony Cruz, a local professional cyclist for an upcoming website. We shot some candid/PJ style images at his home where I used my D300 and D200. Then we went out to the lighthouse to take some portraits.
The G10 can synch up to 1/2000th of a second! In comparison, my D300 only does 250th. This allowed for a lot of creativity using lights to overpower the sun. In these images, I'm using a single Nikon strobe to overpower the ambient, giving it a slightly surreal and poppy look!
Not bad for a little point and shoot!
