This was one of my early shots when I was playing around with my camera and testing out the zoom. I think i was on the other side of the (large) room.

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

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!
