Buying a new toy

One of the things i did last week (while the site was done) was buying a new camera. I really didn”t need anything too fancy, but I wasn”t interested in getting the cheapest of the store too. so, I”ve ended up buying a Canon Powershot S3. I”ve been running several experiences with it and I must say that until now I”m really enjoying it.

One of the things that impressed me was the canon stich support (ie, it”s really easy to take several photos and then stich them so that it turns into a big photo). It”s really cool and appropriate for an apprentice like me :,,)

  1. How many pics can you stich with the camera?

    Take a look at this:

    It takes a while to load because it”s 8 MB. Initially is displayed in black and white and in low res, and then it starts to load it in its full glory from left to right.

    about 30 pics stitched together but using the computer. It isn”t perfect as I skipped some parts without shooting as many pics as needed but after some hand tunning the result isn”t as bad as before πŸ˜›

  2. Laurent: i”m sorry but it seems like i can”t approve your comment (i”ll try again tomorrow since it looks like is always getting intro trouble when i approve it)

    Manuel: it looks like you had lots of fun on your trip to England. i still didn”t manage to see the pic because i”m getting some nasty problems with quick time. ragarding my s3, it can take up to 26 photos and it really has a cool layout which lets you get the previous pic while taking the next (and it lets you go from left-to-right, right-to-left, top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top and clockwise πŸ™‚ )

  3. Luis,

    Yeah, it was a cool trip.

    When I compared some cameras two years ago they were able to stich only 3 or 4 pics. 26 pics… I”m impressed! And that previous pic feature that you mention sounds cool too. Nice purchase πŸ˜‰

    Regarding your quicktime problems, I haven”t installed quicktime since I a few months. There is a codec package called “Quicktime alternative” that install all the necessary quicktime stuff without the bloated apple stuff. Maybe that can help you.

  4. Manuel, the picture is pretty cool and impressive! I”m almost thinking about making an effort to go there…
