4.0 out of 5 stars A great compact P&S camera!, April 9, 2008
Got the PS SD1100IS to replace an older Canon digital. This is a big improvement since the other was about 3 years old, and tho it took great shots it was bulky and sometimes had a maddening delay when trying to shoot portraits. This new camera is much more compact, takes great pictures that download faster and is a joy to use. DIS was important to me and I am still testing this; but so far it seems to be an improvement over the older stabilization technology. I got about 200 shots before needing to recharge, and charging time is quick. It will still delay a little when shooting under low light conditions, but that is the nature of digital photography. And it has less flexible capabilities for manually making your own settings; but overall I am very pleased to have this sophisticated little camera that can go anywhere. It is smaller so you have to pay attention where you leave it! You will need to get a decent bag for it that straps to your belt or goes over your neck. Also will need a larger memory card. The ordering process went very smoothly and there were no surprises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book by an artist in love with his subject, January 25, 2004
This review is from: Oregon Rivers (Hardcover)
Oregon Rivers is one of my favorite books ever, and not just because I have fished some of the rivers so lovingly photographed and described herein. Olson's excellent eye for subtleties and fascinating accounts of the hard work necessary to capture the perfect moment, had me wishing for more. The essays by John Daniel add depth to the understanding of the importance of water to this extremely diverse region. Thus this is not just a beautiful coffee table book, but begs to be repeatedly referred to for its insights into how the state's wealth of resources is treated in this age of environmental conflict. This makes the book an educational tool for all of us, no matter where we live, to appreciate our limited water resources with their inherent beauty. But first and foremost, the book is a gorgeous work, to be loved for its display of a superior artist's love for his subject.
