First pics with the new camera .....

     With the sun finally making an appearance I had a ten minute play with me new camera today. Going to have to read up on it as the functions are so different to my other one, guess this time I will have to read the manual! Here's the best of the crop, basically I am pleased but there is a long way to go yet though....



















     Well that's about it for this post, things to do and all that, so til the next time take care,

John

  2. Far closer than I can get with my camera, no more than 8" seems to be the most mine can cope with!

    1. Funny thing is that I've gut it hoping to get closer to wildlife that's further away, if that makes sense DC?

  3. Wow, takes good pictures even if you haven't read the manual. On the other hand, you're a guy and guys don't read manuals (or ask directions) until after you've screwed up something and just can't get yourself out of hot water.

    1. Bloody hell fire John! I never thought about using the pics for anything else than my own enjoyment of nature and a record of what I see, oh and of course sharing the pics here hopefully to help brighten my scribing. A flower show entry? Well I never thought that my pics would be suitable but being as you have done me the honor of asking my friend I shall give this some consideration. I'll take a look at the look at the link later today.

  10. Hi John, your photographs are stunning. Great clarity and depth .Bear and Nelly looking great as always. You must have read my mind, only minutes before you posted this blog I was wondering when you were going to use your new camera. ...enjoy!
    Looking forward to seeing more wonderful photos :)

  11. Well the pictures are certainly very good, but you must take a good percentage of the applause. I'm still hanging on to my cheepo €70 Fujifilm AX 200.

  12. Hell Cro are you being nice? ;-) Thank you my good man.
    Nothing wrong with a Fujifilm Cro, apart from this post all the other pictures so far on me blog were taken with my Fujifilm F72 EXR,

  16. John, you are indeed most suited for this sort of thing as you take great pictures even not knowing the camera. I can only imagine what you can do when you have read up on it - as opposed to me, who would be "Wow! It takes pictures? Great!" and that would be that.

  17. I agree with John and Cro, all credit to you!
