    New cycling camera

    I picked up a Canon Powershot A570 on a great sale ($149) yesterday to take on my bike. It's not exactly a subcompact, but I like having more control and shooting options. Looks like it's going to be a great little take everywhere camera. I'm really into my dslr but I don't have it with me all the time -- way too heavy!

    Today I was out buying a rechargeable battery set up and looking (fruitlessly) for the kind of camera bag I want (it has to have a velcro strap on the back which would allow me to hang the bag from the handlebars). I found the battery device, but struck out so far on the case.

    Came across these folks having a quick meal in the middle of their ride. I was so envious!



    All those errands made me hungry, so I stopped for a bite in Little Italy.



    I still have two days to work that off for the Monday weight loss challenge!

    A "little bite"? Mama Mia!

    Wheres the shopping Bike? That would have been the ideal time to make contact with a group of cyclist' that have your ideals in mind. They look mature enough to allow you to stay with them on regular rides- And they obviously enjoy your other passion- A bike ride with a decent meal.

    Looking at those dogs you had- You should have made contact.

    I got a new canon SD800 IS for Christmas. Got it for $240 on Amazon.com when the best price I could find online in Canada was $390. It is an amazing camera in a very compact size. It is one of the few that has a wide angle lens, equivalent to 28mm in a 35mm camera, which is why I selected it. It has been replaced by the SD870 IS, but that camera does not have an optical viewfinder, which I find essential for much outdoor photography. I took a pic a week ago of my new cycling jersey, and you can see the camera in this mirror image.

    So, DG, tell me how you walked up to the riders at the tables and said, "Hi, my name's DG, I ride. When's your next group ride scheduled? Say, can I have one of those french fries?"

    I recently purchased the Canon SD1000 - ultra-compact, 7.1 megapixels, with a case and a 1 gig SD card for $169.99 at newegg.com. Very sweet camera, with a large screen, and a look-through viewfinder (not always included in ultra-compacts).



    BTW - that "meal" looks incredibly nasty.

    Well, it was more like I tried to look like I was photographing something else, then snapped the picture. But I did find a San Diego MTB group through meetups.com last night and signed up. So I may be going on something with a group soon. We'll see.

    Great camera; I considered it as well. As for the meal, there I was, walking around the part of town we call Little Italy, and my resistance melted faster than a San Diego snowstorm. And it's not two sandwiches, it's one cut in half. <snort>

    We've got three Cannons in our household....we love 'em.
    The bride and I use rechargeable Ray-O-Vac Hybrid AA's in our
    cameras...they are fantastic. Fully charged right out of the package,
    hold a charge for 9-10 months on the shelf, and seem to last
    forever in the cameras.

    Happy Trails

    Group rides are fun and most include a stop at a local eatery. Have fun!

    I liked how he made it a point to tell us it was one* food item, cut in half and not 2 smaller ones... because that has a lot of caloric relevance.

    Seeing the size of two halves- I don't think I could have eaten a whole one.
