I finally decided that it was time to upgrade my camera equipment. I have been coping along with my compact camera for a year and a half, and soon going to scenic western Norway, I just felt that it wouldn’t be good enough to catch the scenery.
I was actually planning to buy a SLR, but after lots of thoughts I went for a super zoom. This was much because it is a bit smaller an lighter, and I had this nagging feeling that I probably wouldn’t buy additional optics to the SLR anyway.
So, after reading lots and lots of reviews and trying to weigh pros and cons, I ended up with staying loyal to the brand of my compact. I went and bought a Sony DSC-H50 (here is a good review in PhotographyBLOG). Maybe this will bring some improvement to the pics I publish in this blog, at least I can’t blaim the equipment any more.
I didn’t have much time to try it out during the weekend, but here are some of my first shots:
