    Taken with Canon Powershot SX20 IS. A camera I do not recommend. It doesn't save uncompressed JPGs, or raw. What was Canon thinking? The only Canon compact I've owned and disrespect. Built poorly with lousy firmware. A purchase I regret. The detail is blury because the Gigapan button-pusher rocked the camera. But there are so many focusing options on this camera (that don't deactivate in "manual" mode) it took a number of trials to figure out how to get it to behave. The camera must have a delay after button-press, and the Gigapan also. Even so, any interruption causes the camera to switch out of manual focus mode. And still, it won't save uncompressed jpgs. That on top of flimsy construction. Also, I really miss the automatic built-in lens cap of my A640.
