Monday 20 January - Bleached bracken fronds



I'm now three days behind with blog write-ups so I'll make this brief. The main purpose of the walk down Glen Eagles today was to familiarise ourselves with the new camera - a Sony RX100. The light wasn't particularly good for photography but we were pretty happy with the results. Still a lot to learn though.

  1. Interesting choice. I have never been over the moon with how my hx9v captures and portrays clouds. So I hope yours does better. I will be watching with a great deal of interest. I will have a look at the spec on dp review when I get chance. Have fum getting used to it.

    1. I've never had a camera that does everything equally well. Inevitably it's a compromise but the RX 100 does give a fair amount of manual control and shoots RAW files which is new to me.

  2. My NX10 shot RAW files. However, with me not being totally interested in photography as a hobby, i found i couldn’t be bothered with it. I did try for a few weeks but i found it was taking up too much time. I don’t think amateurs like me really need RAW. Give it a go and see what you think.

    1. I lost interest in photography when digital came along and I/we swapped our 35mm SLR for one of the early Cybershots. I say 'swopped' but we've still got the SLR. Throughout the 1980s Lynne gave talks about Munros, others hills, climbing history etc and showed slides to primary schools - purely on an independent voluntary basis - so good quality photographs were required.

      I'm not sure I'll need RAW either but I am finding myself drawn back to mountain photography as an interest - hence my initial interest in the NEX 7. However, until I'm sure this 'interest' isn't a passing phase I thought the RX100 was a reasonable compromise!
