There was a time not too long ago when the Canon Powershot G11 was all I needed on days when I didn’t feel like lugging the 5D Mark II along. Last evening was one of those days when I accompanied my daughter Jewel to the Anthony Abell College sports field for her track training. Just a few days ago, I field tested the Samsung Galaxy S III at the retired Seria sports arena while Jewel field tested her spiked shoes for the first time. The S III’s burst mode accurately locked focus the entire time I was able to keep the camera focused on her – very impressive. But that’s not nearly as impressive as what happened at the track yesterday – during a hurdle practice back-lit against the setting sun at 5.05 pm. The S III’s 20 frames burst mode kept up with the action consistently evident in the picture below. The G11 while good just wouldn’t have the speed to pull this off. In short, the S III is a great compact camera that also lets you make phone calls and share your photos online!
