Holidays with the PowerShot S120

A grey, foggy winter in Germany meant it was time for an escape!

My husband Basti and I decided to go for a rock climbing trip to Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Having worked quite hard on photo assignments before this trip, I decided not to take my trusted EOS 5D Mark III with me to the cliff face. I would be tempted to take pictures instead of concentrating on the climbing, the views, the surroundings and simply the summer breeze.

But being such a passionate photographer I feel naked going without even a tiny camera... so I decided to bring the PowerShot S120 with me; a pocket-sized camera, which fitted easily in my climbing trousers. The perfect choice!

With one hand I could belay Basti and, with the other, I could take pictures of him goofing around. It made me think about the moment. It does not really matter with what camera we shoot with, the most important thing is what we capture.

This small compact camera has big advantages and I am very grateful that Canon gave me the opportunity to test it. I would never normally have looked at a camera this size and I would never have let the camera convince me of its quality... but good things come in small packages! :)

I am still looking forward to the end of the holidays and to be able to go back to my 5D Mark III. Have a great New Year everybody... filled with great pictures and much fun.
