Although I would much prefer to be using a DSLR I don't have one right now. I will have to save the pennies and see what I can do later this year.
The F660EXR is a good little compact with a lot of great features. It is taking a lot of getting used to however having used a DSLR for so long. I am hoping I can wing it without a tripod on the day as I am not sure I will be able to carry the big one I have. I may have to make use of the EXR mode on the camera to give the shutter speeds I need.
Hopefully I will be able to get a ton of shots to create a nice Panorama or two like I did at Druiridge last week.
Tip: Where possible when creating Panoramic shots take as many shots as possible over the field of view. Overlap as much as 30% on each shot. You can even take shots and zoom in on areas of particular interest and incorporate these into your final shot. I use Photoshop CS6 to stitch all my shots together to create the final panorama.
