Ok, please don't download/copy, or send these links to other site/news site/other forums. These are part of a pending review on EnvyNews.com, and I haven't cropped, water-marked, or even excluded the bad picts (out of focus, bad lighting etc).

For EhMac.ca viewing only!


Each image is rather large - I pity dial-up users. 83 images.

Wow, thanks Neil, but for some reason I am unable to connect to EnvyNews. Is this something on my end or is EnvyNews experiencing problems? Even a ping of EnvyNews.com is coming back as the site can not be found. :confused:

The first 10 and last 20 work now. Sorry for this. Somekind of weird UBB 6.5 limitation combined with 110MB of photos and slow FTP'ing speeds...

UPDATE: Ok, all 82 images should link-up fine now!

If you're curious how I photograph these:

I use a Canon PowerShot G2 camera, with a 52mm Lens adapter, and a +7 Macro lens set, with the camera set in Macro mode, Flash-off, in close proximity to a window. Sunlight is a requirement, but not direct sunlight. Monopod.

How does the G2 perform? Did you review it earlier this year? I am looking at it and the powershot A70.
I would like to know what you think of canons cameras.
Thanx in advance Neil,
Robert

Neil, I've appended your certification. The white van is on its way..... Please don't struggle (or film the guys with the straitjacket).



Looking forward to the definitive EN review of the iSight.

Neil, nice pics!

2 short Qs if I may:

- what is the white thing with a FW logo and a vertical slot to the right of your PB? (pic 56)

- In IE, there is a way to shrink high definition pictures so that they fit your screen. Any idea of how to do this in Safari? (poked around but couldn't figure it out)

Robert, re: Canon Digis, I have no probs with them. Although I have so far been a SONY slave, I must add that I was quite interested in a Canons before a new SONY was bought (looked @ the S230, S400). I just bought an older A30 for my ladyfriend, and the photos were fantastic! - I'll post some soon. I would recommend the A series, with no issues --> great price point too! There may be a batt meter issue (read: there is none in the A30). You only get that warning when the batt is low/near dead. Outside of that, all good ;)

The Canon PowerShot 'G' series is their 'Prosumer' non-SLR digital camera that has quite possibly the BEST macro-mode of the business. At the time of the research and subsequent purchase of the G2, I compared its Macro mode to that of the Nikon Coolpix 5000, then 5700, then the Minolta Dimage 7. The Canon won hands down. The Canon PowerShot G3 replaced the G2 about a year after it came out, offering longer AVI movie recording times and full EXIF 2.2 support, better multispot focusing, better Manual Focus control, 1x more Optical zoom, and gyro-detection of the body/frame orientation, but remained at 4MPixel. Roughly 8 months after the G3's release, the G5 came out, which has a black 'Pro' body color, and 5.0-Megapixel CCD resolution, but it otherwise identical to the G3 and near identical to the G2.

I've used/bought Kodak, Fuji, Nikon, Minolta, Apple's QuickTake, and a spattering of other brands, but the Canon digital Powershot series, especially the 'G' family really stand out. Faster lenses, glass coated-optics, smart shoes, metal bodies, tons of optional accessories, but best of all, superior battery technology and duration. There are tons of Canon and 3rd-party lenses and Speedlites as well on eBay.

If you want some examples of killer macro and 'pro' shots, let me know. I can point you to some of my G2 shots that took front page in The Citizen and The Sun here in Ottawa, on my site, and two of my reviewers have G3s and have taken STUNNING shots.
