Evening by a pond, originally uploaded by jiihaa.

We went for a walk late this evening, and it turned rather nice in terms of photography. Although I once again wished for better low-light performance of my camera, the good thing about Canon Ixus 400 is that it is small and light, and thus easy to take with you on even longer walks.

A shirt-pocket sized point-and-shoot camera is in many ways excellent, especially if it has a fast startup time. With such a camera you can get the photo in most situations, such cameras being versatile from macro to short tele.

A cameraphone may unfortunately be not speedy enough - at least in my Nokia E90 the camera function takes quite a while to start up, and there is a terrible focus lag (can be several seconds).
