Hiked up to base of Gap with a buddy. Explored on the rock but too loose and exposed for a hiker.
Tried out a new camera – Olympus 565UZ. My friends with DSLR’s will howl but I have owned top quality SLRs and I am not a good photographer so the extra capability is wasted on me.
The ease of use and advantages of a small lightweight(13 oz.) ultra zoom(20X) offset the disadvantages for me. The ultrazooms do have slightly poorer image quality, are slower and don’t do as well in low light conditions but I was able to pick up the 565 at a discontinued price of $320 CDN so it is a cheap experiment compared to a DSLR.
