Decided to take my new camera out on a test drive this afternoon.
Let me start by saying I really don’t know a lot about what makes a good camera and I am certainly not an expert. I am a bit of an idiot behind the lens. There wont be ant technical talk here.
There is nothing wrong with my old camera, and I will continue to use it, but the price was right on the new camera, and since it just arrived yesterday, this was the first chance I had to take a look at what it could do. The big improvement over my other camera is a much larger manual telephoto lens. My other camera, a Nikon Coolix, had that internal zoom thing, that really just digitally enlarged the picture, but in return you lost a lot of sharpness in the pictures.
The new camera, a FujiFilm Finepix, has and actual manual telephoto lens, so I wanted to test the capabilities of this new lens in a simple environment. What better place than the ballpark.
Sitting in the front row of the upper deck, I took a shot. And then I started to zoom in towards center field.
I was impressed, but I had only begun.
Still looking clear from across the field.
Test almost over.
Wow. I am impressed.
Next time I will have to try it out with actual people on the field.
