New Camera

One of the first test shots:

Buzzard, taken at a range of 100 feet or more, through my kitchen window. I was particularly impressed with the zoom facility so I could even get details of his lower legs and claws.

And of a miniature:

Neither photo had to be altered, which is also an improvement on my old camera. Light levels were not good but both seem ok.

Here they are, the old one is top, in silver, new below it in black. Best of all I got a 8Gb memory card which should hold 2000+ photos instead of the poxy 50Mb card in the old camera which held about 35 photos…which annoyingly meant I’d shoot off to download photos mid game as the memory card was full.

Interestingly the shop assistant did almost start swearing when he was trying to take a photo of the figure I took in as the test sample !
So it’s not just us who have problems taking photos of our little toys. 🙂

As you can see from the photos (taken by my parents’ digital camera), the new camera features both a thinner profile, and a larger LCD on the back.

Again, I’m not one to get worked up about new techie toys, but it is interesting to see the progress technology makes in ever shorter time periods. It took less than 30 minutes and testing 3 cameras to get this beauty. I suppose I ought to go and take some pictures of figures and what not now. 😉

So from now on, Louis the camera and I, are going to have a beautiful relationship.

Did Rick/Han or Strasser/Greedo fire first ?

For the total heathens out there, the first film clip is from Casablanca.
