Haven't done a point & shoot for a while so here is the Canon SURESHOT Owl.  The main feature with this camera is the big viewfinder. Canon says it is three times the size of a conventional viewfinder and can easily be used by someone wearing eyeglasses.  All the modes are on one fairly large sized dial.


The Owl seems like it was a pretty okay camera for taking pictures of your  cats or kids.











I thought this was an interesting picture.  I didn't see the bird when I took it.














I can't think of much else to say about this camera other then in its day it did its job. I will add that I think that it is one of the more appealing looking plastic point & shoots.  I don't think it comes through that well in my photo, however in person the camera does have the look and feel of a little owl.
