Great Backcountry Camera
This is a nice picture I took with a great backcounty camera. The camera is a Canon PowerShot SD400. It is small and compact and easy to carry in a coat pocket or shirt pocket, depending on the conditions. I took this shot on top of Mount Ashland while snowboarding. This angle is looking north towards the City of Ashland in Oregon. It was a great snow year this year!
The specifics of this shot are 1/400s at f/10.0. Not the best lens but considering it is a compact, it does pretty well. The focal length was 17mm which gives a 35mm equivalent of 110mm (full zoom for the camera). I thought the camera did very well with the white balance. Even though the camera is small, I find it easy to snap pictures with.
