Bought myself a Canon S3 (Yes I know the S5 was coming out but I don't like being the first to buy...) to replace my ancient Powershot A20. I've been playing with the camera since UPS delivered it yesterday. It's a fun camera. I've taken decent shots across poorly lit rooms, macro shots of carvings, and Buffy the Cockatiel Slayer.
That was taken about 2.5 inches from her face.
