One of the funnest and most memorable gift a parent can give their children is a themed party. But this in itself is an exercise in detail management rather than a trip to the local toy store. Often, parents go at it on their own or simply employ an event organizer-with the budget willing, of course. Which ever way they choose, the details are really what matters.
During the day of the party it’s happy chaos. Parents need to run around making sure all the guest are happy and the party is going along without a hitch. Yes, even if an event organizer is present it’ll be the same sweat inducing and food starved event.
On a photographic stand point, it’s almost, always about the beautiful details. Believe you me… whatever happened during the party, it’ll be one nice blurry blob of a memory the next day.
An obvious advantage will be when the kids take a look at the photo album ten years down the line they will be amazed at what an exceptional job their parents have done.
Update September 14, 2009– Canon Philippines, the G 11 will retail for P33,950 – official word from www.philstar.com
For me the G11 still looks like the G10 except for it’s swivel screen. I am still hoping for good results of it’s new low light high ISO images. Keeping those fingers crossed. In the meantime, head on over to Engadget for the initial hands on with more images of the new high end point and shoot.
Here is another hands on from Akihabara News. Theirs is more detailed with actual images from the G11 taken around the Japanese city. I liked the review-realistic. Proves that Canon will not make a point and shoot to replace their entry level DSLR line (1000D, 500D). If you want a superb little camera that takes great photos on the fly this is it. If you want to shoot HD video, get a lower end consumer point and shoot or video cam. If you want a larger sensor that takes billboard size photos then get the upcoming 60D or the ready and available 5D MK II. I have a G7 that’s 2 years old and still love it.
The question is: prosummer point and shoot or DSLR? For me it’s prosummer P&S for daily bring around while doing anything and DSLR for actual commissioned work.
