well, actually S2 IS helps by showing part of previous image for alignment with the current one. works pretty well.

but the picture gets pretty skewed, almost like a fish eye lense.

tree of glass?

no, it's rain that instantly froze into ice and wrecked trees, power lines and daily life of cincinnati residents.

snow flakes from super macro in canon S2 IS.

these snow flakes give very little time to shoot, before they melt. and then there was freezing coled and snow falling on the camera.

Vivek, for pics with snow, try increasing the exposure a bit.

The snow-flakes are tough to catch .. only the first of the 7 pics has a near full flake. Would it help if you had placed the camera ready for a shot and used a remote to fire, as soon as a flake lands in the focus area?

true, i always forget that part.

for snow flakes, it's difficult to set the cam very close to the object when u r expecting snow to fall on it. then i tried it with my windscreen. glass de-shapes them even faster.

These are extremely difficult objects to capture. Moving target, low light, auto focus won't work, flash will spoil the picture, it is frustrating. Don't worry if you don't get the picture right, you learn a lot about real photography in this kind of challenging scenerios.

It is a bedsheet, not a mat. Shot from my newest camera (Z550i).
