My first outing with my kinda new high tech digital camera was to take pictures of the "Occupy Portland" event yesterday.  It was dark and gloomy out and I probably would have been a little more successful using tri-x pan with my Mamiya twin lens camera.  One feature I like about this Canon model is the very flexible viewing screen that pulls out and rotates so one can hold the camera at waist level and compose looking downwards a passive approach that makes candid photographs of people easier. 
 I usually feel uncomfortable pointing cameras at people and with focus and aperture settings I can take a loonnnnnggggg time and not be very surreptitious about it.  Though I am still getting accustomned to the controls I can work a little faster with this camera.
