New camera


I’ve had my new camera for about two months now, and I can now just about work it.

When I bought it, I received a voucher for some free prints from Jessops. However, in the time I’ve had the camera I’ve not taken sufficient photos that I am happy enough with to warrant printing, so I had to trawl through my archives. This made me realise that I have actually taken a few decent photos, and mostly with my old camera.

Yes, the new camera takes more photos quickly in burst mode, has vastly better low light performance, much greater control over depth of field and shutter speed, and better quality images in terms of megapixels. But the old camera is lighter, and more flexible in not needing to change lenses.

So I suppose this just proves the old adages “a bad workman blames his tools”, and “the best camera is the one you have with you” have some truth in them. But you probably new that already. And I’m not planning on giving up my new camera any time soon…
