More Fun with the Point-and-Shoot

Standard

So I spent some more time playing with the point-and-shoot camera. It absolutely won’t replace my DSLR anytime soon…that butterfly pic could have been amazing if I had what I call my “real camera,” versus OK with the little one. The landscape there with the lakefront isn’t as sharp as I would like. Overall there is a softness to the focus I don’t love, but it was a really reasonably-priced point-and-shoot, with the added bonus of being waterproof.

But the filters absolutely make up for any shortcomings the little camera may have. You know how you all told me you thought the miniaturizing filter worked? Well, you were right! Especially, I learned, when I managed to get some height. I thought these were so fun.

The effect is really pretty amazing.

I’m kind of thinking of the point-and-shoot as another lens that doesn’t need changing. It may not be my go-to lens, and it may not give me the best results under all conditions, but it’s still an awfully fun thing to have in my camera bag.

So that’s Monday! What’s that, hypothetical reader? You noticed I got through this entire post and didn’t mention writing once?

Really? You noticed that?

Hmm.

  1. I love that yachts one! I haven’t got round to using a half of what my compact can do. (And yes,. we noticed … there was a kind of transatlantic tapping of feet …)

    • Me too! It’s my favorite, the whole harbor looks like a toy, down to the water looking fake. I also enjoy the way the people look plastic on the tennis court (though it’s difficult to see at that size).

      It’s definitely worth playing with. I think your compact has a better lens, though.

      • I can right-click on the pics and open them full size, and yes, the tennis players looked like they came from a model railway layout 🙂
