Andy’s got a new camera – A CANON PowerShot SX50 HS

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Yes, I’ve purchased a new camera, A CANON PowerShot SX50 HS, and yes, it’s a “Bridge Camera”. A halfway house between a compact and D-SLR. I already have a compact camera, and D-SLR, so needed something in the middle, and this boasts a 50x optical zoom lens, equivalent to a 1200mm conventional telephoto lens.

I’m very impressed with the first photographs….(click for full image, straight from camera, no image processing, 12Megapixel – JPEG).

In this first photograph, if you look carefully, you will see our, two Doves on the chimney pots…

in this photograph, at 50x (1200mm) zoom, handheld, no tripod, you can see the Dove, and also notice the lichens on the chimney pot!

I don’t know how this camera does it, holding a camera in my hand at 50x optical zoom, with Image Stablisation, and it’s able to give me good photograph, with my shaking hands! (I would recommend a tripod! but without, gives good results)

Last post of 2010 – Happy New Year 2011

Friday, December 31st, 2010

This will be my last post of 2010, and to all readers a Happy New Year 2011, a may it be a Prosperous One!

It’s been the coldest December in North Yorkshire since 1840, ball cock froze, drain pipe froze, pipes froze, and the ground is just starting to thaw, after tomorrow I think all the snow may have gone, that fell in late November 2010.

Here are a collection of photographs taken in December 2010, to remind us of those cold dark days

All the best for 2011 – Folks…
