Diabolo Action

Sorry I didn’t put any photos up from my new camera when I promised! I’ll post some now. At this stage I was still getting used to the camera, so some of my early less staged shots were blurry. I was testing out the potential of using the zoom since I never had a zoom lens before. Here, it was useful for taking an action shot from quite a distance without anybody even realising.

24 Hour Gaming TimeLapse

My housemate Jonny decided to go hardcore after his exams and put in 24 hours of World of Warcraft. Me and other housemates decided this needed to be documented so I set up my camera to timelapse him throught the night. Being aware of the camera there, Jonny ended up doing some random animation antics through the night! Watch for moving food, drinks, chairs going missing, appearing and disappearing objects… its actually quite funny for a video of some guy at a PC!


Google Video:

The raw video is actually beyond hi-def quality as it is at digital camera quality (per frame) but MS Movie Maker soon destroyed that, shame. I’ve also done a couple of other random timelapses which are cool but aren’t quite as legendary as JonnyCam!

Zoom Compare

Follow-up to New Camera! from -[ The Jarvism ]-

Right, My old camera was a Sony DSC-P32
This was fully automatic, no zoom other than digital zoom, but all this did was crop the image down so a full zoom in was actually a smaller image. Anybody can do that in photoshop! To compare, this made this image:

Old Camera

In comparison, my new Canon Powershot S2 IS did this:

New Normal

There are some differences in colour but thats probably due to the various different modes I have each camera on, and the fact I didnt give my new one much of a chance to auto–adjust. In terms of field of view you can see that the old camera is slightly more wider angle.

My new camera can ramp up to 12X optical zoom (without any other adapters) and an example of this is here:

New X12

After this there is a further 4X digital zoom (taking it up to 12×4= 48X zoom) however, digital zoom simply blows up the pixels so it looks rough and grainy but it gives you an idea of what 4X zoom is like.

New X48

Quite a few compact point and shoot cameras do have maybe about 4X optical zoom, an example is the Canon Powershot A610 which I have used and this is also quite impressive. I think any kind of zoom is better than no zoom since no zoom normally means you get a very wide shot with no option to focus your attention onto something you want to see the detail with.

Anyway, I shall eventually be putting up some of the photos I've been taking recently, so watch this space!

New Camera!

Writing about web page http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/canon_s2is.asp

Well, just over a month ago I got myself a new toy! A Canon Powershot S2 IS!

Canon Powershot S2 IS

I've been playing with it quite a bit recently and trying out some effects along with my friend Dave (who also has a new camera!) and Will with some random photography. Some of my photos will appear on the blog soon, but a load will also hopefully appear in the WSAF Photographic Exibition in Xanana Lounge and The Cooler!

I cant be bothered reviewing this camera, the link above has more than enough of a hardcore review! My comments though… ITS GREAT!
