  6. hi anoop, great pics !! i am just curious how do have a focal length of 919mm in the S2 ? did u use a teleconverter? i thought that S2 has a focal length range was 36mm - 432mm (in terms of 35mm film camera). but, once again the pics were great..

  7. @arindham : yeah the focal length is not in terms of 35mm. Once i get to 432mm on the S2IS, there is an option to add more zoom digitally. So it calculates the focal length if i actually used a teleconverter and stores this in the exif...its deceiving but yeah thats how the S2 works! :)

  8. cool man... I love the red flubber with the zero background. soober it is. btw, if you digi zoom it calculates the exif. It cant calculate the exif if you use teleconv. that only slrs can.

    the white lotus on a blue blue pond,has always been one of my favourite pics.
    It's so beautiful that I have saved a similar pic to paint when I feel the urge sometime....aaah such lovely photos.
