Yes, I did pan. Actually, it's about the only way you can shoot fast flying airplanes. The sharpness can also credited to the Canon L-lens, a real performer!

Ah yes, the Canon. I'd like to buy one, but which one. I'm not good at technical jargon even if someone explained the whole thing to me. I've absolutely no idea wich Canon to buy. I think I've outgrown my Coolpix. I will certainly miss the moveable LCD screen though. Any idea if a Canon has that feature. I'm tired of the delayed action with the Coolpix. I'd like to click and get the image right away. I'm saving up for a better camera and will look more seriously into a Canon near the time. I just donated money for Katrina, so there was a chunk gone from my fund. But it went somewhere good. Any advice on which Canon?

Diana,

There are so many models that I could not really recommend anything. Personally, I prefer an SLR, so my choice is limited. The 2 entry levels SLR, the Rebel XT and the 20D are excellent cameras. But, what I have discovered is that the body comes second after the lens. If you like to spend money, the L series from Canon is a great investment. The sharpness and colour rendition are phenomenal, and there is hardly any distortion.
If you'd like to stay with a non interchangeable lens camera, the Canon S1 series is a good choice since it gives you all the manual adjustments you need.
But again, there are so many models to choose from, your head will start spinning fast!
Have a great w-e!

Thanks for your opinion Pierre. It seems I'll have to some research. I appreciate your explanations.
