    What camera do you have? How much zoom (optical or mm?)

    Im going with 800mm of zoom capacity (about 30X optical).

    Cannon PowerShot SD960 - the best point and shoot I have ever owned.
    It has so many cool features (2 and 10 second timer for 1 or 3 shots, continuing shoots, slow shutter with speed control, and much more).

    It's 20mm (wide shot) and X4 zoom.

    Oh wow I was definately expecting more, goes to show the quality of the camera is actually very good!!! Im impressed that small of a zoom and you still got pretty close from the stands up there, not a bad camera at all!!

    I have an fz28 with a 1.7 tele converter, thats why i can reach to 800mm, but it gets pretty soft and aperture is at like 5.0 by that point, which means i need heaps of light.

    I was jsut curious because I want to estimate how close Ill get from up there, shouldnt be too bad!!!

    I don't get to play nearly as much as I would like to, living in NYC will do that to you.

    When I do play, it's on city courts and you get only hour, so I barely sweat, which means I can play with my glasses (the last 15 minutes are annoying).

    I hate lenses, but if I were to play longer than an hour, I would use my lenses, or the new prescription goggles I got ;)

    Daniel Koellerer was the only losing player I saw that hung around to sign autographs after his match

    Honestly, I don't remember, I'm on tennis overload ;)
    It was a very entertaining match, loved it when Koellerer kissed the net after he got a kind roll...
