Vacation last month in San Diego took the family to Sea World. Where else? My wife Annie can be seen here on one of the water rides. She’s not perfectly focused, but that doesn’t diminish the pic’s impact, particularly considering the camera—a Nikon D70 digital SLR, outfitted with Nikon ED 70-300mm lens.
We also traveled with the Canon S500 (used by my wife) and Canon S410 (used by my daughter). But these more typical digital cameras—and most others—couldn’t have captured this image as well. Auto focus and shutter response typically is too slow. Nor could I have achieved the reach with the built-in zoom lens.
