The Next Set

Here is another set from the Sony RX100 Mark 7. Much of the same things I’ve posted before unfortunately, but it’s a nice test for the camera. I plan to take the camera and my tripod into the desert tomorrow for a few landscape photos, maybe I can find some Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels in Calico Basin too. For the most part, I’m very impressed with how well these photos cleaned up in processing! I almost feel like a pro, haha. 10 photos in this set.

Testing A New Camera

Before I get into the new camera, are you also having connectivity issues with WordPress this morning? All of my pages either won’t load or are super slow to load. Other pages like Dropbox and my email load as usual. It’s gotta be WordPress having another brain fart.

Moving along, I needed a break from the blog yesterday so I took care of some stuff around the house, then set off to my favorite camera shop on Sahara Avenue. I’ve found that the Nikon has actually been sort of getting on my nerves with the terrible dust intrusion problem which has reared its ugly head again.

I mentioned this to the dude at the shop, he seemed surprised to hear this. Oh yeah, it’s terrible, no matter what I do, dust just gets into the camera in a big bad way. This pisses me off and I’ve had enough!

Did I mention that the weight and bulk of the Nikon is sometimes a pain in the ass too? So I picked up my little Sony RX100 camera and took some random photos with it and thought, why not look into a smaller camera that won’t have dust intrusion issues?

I searched online for different options including Olympus cameras and other brands, making some comparisons.

And what did I arrive at? I came across the Sony RX100 series and found that Sony had released a nice upgrade or update to the RX100 series which was first released in 2012. This newer version is the RX100 vii or Mark 7.

What’s new? A very nice tilt-screen, a newer menu system, and a 200mm zoom capability which has been great so far in the short time I’ve had with it yesterday and early today. I searched online for a video tutorial on this newer version and found a really good one that is about 40 minutes in length, I learned quite a bit in a short time.

Have a gander at these photos from very early this morning as the sun was rising. As far as I am concerned at this point, these photos are every bit as good as the Nikon Z6 can produce, but this camera fits in my pocket. I also read more about cameras in this class and how they compare to phone cameras.

Sorry phones, but they still can’t compete with this camera. Oh, WordPress seems to be back up so I best hurry and finish before it craps out again!! I would like your thoughts on these photos, and did you miss me yesterday, haha!!!
