Wg-2 has a pan focus function with no discernable shutter lag. Pretty nice.

I love that first shot, Taran, but why B&W? This type of thing screams colour to me.

Clicking on an ad just once a day will help me tremendously with financing this site.

My nephew has left last weekend for a trip to Thailand, Laos and maybe Cambodia.
First stop will be to see his granddad in Pai, Thailand.
He has taken the camera I gave him, he will be back around February 2013.
Let's hope the camera serves him well...
