Agree with your take on “action” pictures. I once shot bullriders at a county fair with an Olympus e-510 and a manual focus 135mm lens. I just focused at the door where the bulls and riders came out, set a small aperture, and the shots were good. I even got a few “How’d you do that?” comments.

As far as the SX260 goes, I have an SX230 and the jpegs are overprocessed for sure. However, the SX230 can shoot raw, via CHDK. (Maybe the SX260 can too; I don’t know.) The raw images are MUCH better, although looking at the wide end is disquieting (unbelievably distorted, which you have to correct yourself in raw). If you shoot raw on the camera at the lens’s sweet spot, maybe 1/3 to 1/2 way through the zoom range, you would be surprised what it can do.

I usually don’t bother, but it’s there, and the few times I’ve done it, I realized that the SX230 is a lot more camera than I thought it was.
