While we were traveling, I realized the need for a smaller camera……not that I am going to give up my Digital SLR but sometimes you want to be surreptitious and you just cant do it with a camera that size. During our recent trip, I used my cell phone as my “sneaky” camera and also for videos, but the quality just wasn’t quite up to par.
So, once home I started researching various small cameras. After talking to a lot of people and reading a lot of internet reviews I opted for the Sony Cybershot……
It is a 16 mega-pixel camera with a 10x zoom. There were several features that I really liked about it, including a great panorama feature.
The next day we left for a few days at the beach with our friends Roy and Diane so it was the perfect time to put it thru it’s paces.
Here are a few of the things that I learned…..
Long distance scenery shots are great……
It handled the low light really well……
I also used it to film a video of some of the shore birds and loved the quality of the video but also the quality of the audio.
But the best part of the camera…….
This great photo on our last night!!!!
