New Photos

The weather here hasn't helped me to go out for some pictures but it is seems to be changing now. So, I will be posting some more shots from my Sony HX300 new camera. I am loving this camera now. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning as I was constantly comparing it to the almighty Canon SX50 but now after I have read several reviews I can say there differences are not that huge and both have advantages and disadvantages.

Here are some photos I took in the past days.

Some Macro Shots

An afternoon with the Sony HX300 Part 2

Here is the second part of my afternoon with the Sony HX300. I know this camera has been severely criticized for squeezing too many pixels on a small sensor and I guess I do agree with all the criticism. Had Sony put less megapixels into this small sensor we would have been a camera with far less noise. However, we don't view pictures at 100% all the time just to check out for noises so I guess this camera does what it was designed for and does it pretty well. 

I have notices that some of the pictures I took were a bit on the dark side but now I have changed the contrast setting so I believe pictures will be a lot better now. 

This camera is very responsive and I am going to post some pictures I took with both, my now old Canon SX40 and Sony HX300. 

Let's see if you notices any difference.

An afternoon with the Sony HX300

The weather wasn't very good to be honest. But that was my first day using my brand new Sony HX300. I have to be honest, my old Canon SX40 takes better pictures and its image quality is clearly better but using this 50X optical zoom in the Sony HX300 is very good. Here are some samples I took with this camera.

Sony HX300

Here are some photos I took with this camera. I love this camera but to be honest I wish I had thought better and got the Canon SX50. Anyway, I know Canon is about to release a new one and this time I will get it. I love the Sony HX300 don't get me wrong, it is a very good camera but I just think the Canon SX50 has an overall better image quality.

New Camera

I've finally bought a new camera. My Canon SX40 is making this horrible noise every time I zoom in and out. But it is still taking pictures. I decided to keep with a bridge camera I knew I would miss the zoom capabilities of a bridge if I had gone for a different one.

Anyway, I just shot some photos from my garden. Here are a few samples.

Back to my dear pictures

After several months away I am finally back to my normal life. I have been both too busy and too lazy to go out for some pictures. It was also winter time here so the weather wasn't so good. Now it is much more beautiful but much hotter too but at least I can go out with my camera without fearing some rain.

Last weekend, I spent some time with my wife on the beach. It was fantastic, great weather, nice conversation so everything was perfect. Here are some pictures we took from the beach. 

I am about to buy a new camera so more and more pictures will pop up this summer.

It's been a while since I last posted some photos here. My Canon SX40 is no longer the same. It's been making some weird noises every time I zoom in and out and a kind of round rub came out of it some weeks ago so now it is time to think about a new toy. 

I have been using my tablet quite a lot for both studying and taking some pictures. With nothing really to do this morning I tried to take some pictures in the garden. I used the Galaxy Note 8 for this.
