A Dream Camera For Me!
on September 16, 2013
I am a compulsive photographer, and started shooting people and objects when I was 15. A friend presented me with my first digital camera when I was 45, and life has never been the same again. That was Sony Mavica, and it used 3.5 inch floppy disks to store pictures. The highest resolution was only 1.2 mega pixels, but with its 16x optical magnification it did wonders for me.
This is my fourth digital Camera in 15 years. In fact the moment I read the specification and the Sony name, I sold my non Sonly Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera, removable lens, and telephoto lens (puchased for a futune) at a loss and bought this model. Once again, life has never been the same again after I bought it.
Here are some of the features
*** It offer 20+ Mega-pixel resolution, something that can do wonders
*** It offer and unbelievable 50x OPTICAL magnification, again something that can do wonders
Care to Take:
*** The camera offers so much in terms of resolution and optical magnification that most users need to learn afresh that a powerful tool can be used in unbelievable way. Do explore all the possibilities
*** Do use a monopod or a tripod for shooting at magnifications greater than 20x
*** High resolution
*** Super-high magnification
*** Ability to keep the flash off in any and every situation (a manual switch is provided)
*** All other standard software features are available
*** Very light and ergonomic design
Most Helpful Feature:
*** The ability to shoot pictures even in relative darkness is the feature most helpful to me. This means that I do not have to turn the flash on at most occasions. What is more, if the image on the viewfinder screen looks dark, the circular switch at the back of the camera allows you to lighten the image before shooting to an amazing degree. This means that one can save considerable amount of battery charge, which in turn gives a longer battery life. This feature also produces better pictures than dark pictures made light in a graphics program.
*** If ease of use, high resolution, and high optical magnification is your need, then this is THE camera for you
*** It is very economically priced
I have been using this Camera now for 3 months and for me it is dream come true.
