Thanks to Elizabeth, I’m now the happy owner of a pretty powerful, yet compact, digital camera (read David Pogue’s review for more info). My sister-in-law Emily’s participation in the Soldier Field 10 Mile race on Saturday provided a good opportunity to give it a workout. Though I did not have a good enough view of the action to get any decent race photos, click here to see a few of the other shots I did get.

One neat feature is the in-camera effects. Below is the example of an effect where you take a photo and all the colors except blue are removed from the scene.

This camera setting spotlights the blue colors in a black-and-white photo.
