While my wonderful wife is in the next room looking up hotels in Venice for our trip this summer, I began perusing photographs from past visits. All of these were taken with the Konica-Minolta A2, which, at that time, was the best "bridge" camera available. Bridge meaning a step up from a simple point-and-shoot but not a full-fledged DSLR. This camera has a useful 28-200 zoom range and isos down to 64, which I used for all these shots. I have blown up some of these photos to poster size and they hold together fairly well. It has an 8 megapixel sensor, at the time a pretty impressive number during the megapixel wars of the early stages of sensor development.
