I don’t know if I’m getting old or if cameras are getting more complicated – but I’ve had to once again refer to the manual for the G9.

This past weekend in Cambridge was the first real ‘outing’ it’s had, and last night me and N did some photography at O’Donoghues for the Not St Patrick’s Day celebration – I took the G9, N took the 400D. Sadly I had to ditch quite a few photos because of motion blur, red-eye (the reduction seems to do little) and excessive noise on high ISO. A bit of fiddling this morning has led to a realisation I misunderstood the image stabilisation function, so next time I’m out photographing in a pub I’ll see if I can get it to behave better.

(If you didn’t turn up last night, shame on you – good beer, free food, and Ryan+Alice singing some excellent songs.)
