Photo: Super telephoto shot
The most remarkable thing about the camera is that it has a 42 times zoom lens. It is the equivalent of a 24 mm - 1,000 mm zoom lens on a DSLR camera. This camera does not match the features or quality of the lenses of our Nikon D7000 or D90 DSLR cameras, but it is an amazingly versatile and convenient to use. The quality is surprisingly good for a small camera. This photo was taken, hand held, from a long distance, as you can see in the comparison to the photo posted two days ago.
Dave bought this camera because of the series of photos that Cathy posted on St. Petersburg, Florida Daily Photo. She posted several photos, also taken on the beach, to demonstrate her new camera, which is a similar model, although hers has a 28 times zoom.
The beaches of Southern California are popular with Arizonans because the weather is perfect, and in Phoenix/Scottsdale during this past week we have just had our 101st day this year with more than 100 degrees F (38 C).
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week I am showing some photos of the colors of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
