Why Snapshot?

To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.

Canon S110

I have been after a pocketable camera for a while. Sometimes the DSLR is just too big and heavy and even the Canon G6 still requires a largish camera bag so the other day I purchased the Canon S110. It's size means it fits in my jeans pocket, the image quality is excellent, plenty of image control, and it shoots 1920 HD video. Here are a few sample images from day one with it.
