Yes, I decided to treat myself to a new camera, and after a fair amount of research settled for the Canon Powershot G1X. My Lumix has given me really good service over the last few years but it's taken quite a battering, and the video recording is now very disappointing. The challenge with a new camera is learning both what it can do, and how to work the many controls, options, settings, modes, and menus. Of course it's another device which is really a computer, with some great optics attached. Yesterday I went out for a couple of hours and came back with some quite pleasing results. Here are two.

This chap was at peace in Victoria Park, with a family of squirrels playing behind his back. Not a great photo optically, but quite fun.
