Well, for that matter, all I see is water. The Seas! I miss blossom fields, the bugs and even the annoying stray dogs coming sniffing arround when you lay on the ground to take pictures... This is how the spring/summer is looking this year for me: Gone! By SEN
I've been told that I betrayed the Nikon comunity as a photographer. The forums does not allow me to interact with my friend, what's left of them. All because I've changed my gear from Nikon to Canon. Well, it's true! I am no longer a nikonist! Not that I no longer want/wish to own a Nikon camera, but due to some unfortunate circumstances I had to sell my Nikon camera. Since I had no savings to aford new DSLR and I could not live without a digital camera (you know the feeling! And more importantly, all the good stuff happens when you have no camera with you!! True?), I purchased the most versatile compact camera existed on the market. Some say: why you did't go with Nikon compact? Fuji, Sony or Olimpus for that matter! Well, again, like I said: I purchased the most versatile compact camera on the market! Price - good! Build quality - good! Zoom range - huge: 35x optical (24-840mm at 35mm equiv) f/2.7-5.8. Image quality - good! To have ideea of how impresive the zoom is, here I post test pictures. First is on widest zoom and 100% crop of it. Second is maxim telefoto zoom and 100% crop of it. Or, better, like this to compare the full zoom capabilities: I MISS MY NIKON EVERY DAY! - to be clear! Image quality is not on par with DSLR, but still, acceptable for family photos and amator photographer. Limited manual control. I save money (started two years ago, but trouble allways finds me!) for a new Nikon (even if I wanted different brand on the begining, now not), probably Nikon D7k if not a bargain find for D300s! Lens wise, I'll go with general purpose Nikkor 18-200mm VR2 plus 50mm f/1.8. Latter on, a dedicated macro lens 105mm Nikkor. By SEN
One of the advantages of having a huge... zoom (35x optical, Canon SX30IS) is that you can intrude in people's lifes without being there. I appologise to those finding their faces here, it's not personal, nor bussines. Just a hobby! By SEN.
