"I took this course (Creating Depth in Landscape Photography) because of the excellent reviews from prior students, and they were right! ... Doug Johnson is an excellent instructor, going out of his way to be sure you understand the subject. His lessons, critiques and replies to questions are very clear and informative. Even without a camera in my hand, I find myself looking at things differently now." -Kathleen Paton

Photo Q&A

1: Canon G12 Recommendation?
I'm looking for a nice high end hybrid to take kayaking and hiking, and when my full DSLR is too much. Is anyone using a Canon G12 and how do you like it? What makes it stand out for me is the movable viewfinder screen which would make low and high shots a lot easier.
- Jim Echols
My husband Jack has one (I have the G10), and when I asked him for his opinion, he said he uses it almost in place of his XSi. The pictures are sharp, the color's good and the size is great. I love the macro mode on my G10, so I'm betting it's just as good or better on the G12 although I admit I haven't tried it yet. Bottom line? He'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Sony also has some nice high-end point and shoots. Some of the super zooms really come in handy when you don't have, or can't afford, a long lens for the DSLR.
