My sad story with the Laredo repair center in Texas still unfolds as I write this. To keep a longer story short, my NEX-7 got overnighted to me…the day that I left for vacation. When I arrived here in Florida, it got to my university in Lexington! I’ll just have to remember next time to allow MUCH more time for servicing than I did for my sensor repair. 😦
Not wanting to be completely without a camera this week, I was convinced to bring along a small point-and-shoot to at least get SOME pictures. The camera I’m using, a Canon Powershot SX100 IS (circa 2007!) is overwhelmingly underpowered compared to my NEX-7 in nearly every performance aspect possible. The only exception is that it sports a handy 10x zoom with image stabilization covering the 36-360mm field-of-view in 35mm-format terms.
So, in close of this (painfully short) update, I’ll leave you with a sunset that I tried to keep from looking as “touristy” as possible. 😉
I’ve found this camera also has a handy macro mode (with a little control of depth-of-field!), so I’ll see if there are some tiny tropical flowers popping up and take a few more pictures suited to my usual style. Next week…we’ll see. 🙂
I have an idea for an article or two this week as well, so stay tuned!
