Canon G10 - Mixed Indoor Lighting At The Library

We took Lilly to the Cambridge Queens Square Library last night to get some books and a Barney DVD.

I took along my new Canon G10 thinking it would be a perfect spot to see how the G10 handles mixed indoor lighting, you know the kind that usually wreaks havoc with your white balance and makes skins tones look yellow and green. :-(

Here's some of the photos I got from G10 in Program Mode, all shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom.

By the way, aside from the third photo of Lilly at the table, the white balance on all of these is how it came straight out of the Canon G10.

So far I'm very impressed with my little Canon G10, especially shooting in P mode. The exposures are great, and the image quality is really surprising me (i.e. did I shoot that with a compact digital camera?).

I'm really liking the different perspectives and angles I can get composing my photos with the G10's LCD. It's so much easier to just hold it down low and compose via the LCD than to get on my knees or lie on the floor and compose with the viewfinder like I do with my DSLRs.
