Baltic Sea Reflections

Baltic Sea Reflections


The long-awaited holidays I have written about in a previous post started with a visit to my parents, who live at the Baltic Sea. My youngest daughter came with me and while bathing in the aforementioned sea, I became inspired to take aquatic photos.
I got this to do them with.

So, a NIKON Coolpix AW120. Who thinks of these names? (more…)

Another Dimension

The Nikon 1 V1 camera body pales in comparison to the huge 1 Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lens. And yes, I black out all my cameras with a sharpie pen. Didn't stick on the "1" though ;)

The second lens I got for my Nikon 1 V1 EVIL camera was the Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-Zoom lens. As you can see, this is no longer a compact camera system now, (more…)

The Nikon 1 V1 really is much smaller than it looks here. That's a mini bottle of mineral water behind it.

Uncrapping a Digicam

The object of today's exercise

The object of today's exercise


Got a Nikon CoolPix S1100PJ digicam yesterday. I confess, it was for the gadget factor. Unfortunately, the built-in pico-projector doesn’t work on Mac OS X Lion. Nikon has promised to look into it. The projector works for slideshows straight from the camera’s SD-card, though, and that is kind of nifty.
But what about the camera qualities of this, well … camera? In the default settings, image quality is crap (by the way: all images in this post can be clicked for large versions):
Let's call this rendition of the berries and the leaves "painterly", shall we?

See those JPEG compression artifacts at the limit of the sensor’s resolution? That’s what you get when you cram 14 megapixel on a sensor smaller than your pinkie’s nail.

26th November 2010: Updated: Added resolution at f/4.0 shots.
NAS* is a terrible disease. One visit to the Nikon demo booth on a photo fair, and you just have to own Nikon’s Pro Tele Zoom, the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED AF-S VR II. I’ll have to auction off my Ebony SV45U2 large format camera in order to be able to afford it, but whatever. (more…)
