So, Peter just got a rather swish Nikon D90 DSLR camera.
This means I’ve been gifted with his older camera, the Sony DCS H50. It’s still a pretty swish bridge camera (what this means is that it has a large very capable lens stuck to it, but it’s not interchangable). I’ve been told he’ll still want to borrow it, as the Sony has some lovely features his new camera currently can’t do. The Sony manages to do close up and macro pretty well with the one lens – whereas Peter will need to buy a macro lens or macro filter. It also has a pretty nifty night mode, for taking in the dark photos.
So, while it’s a little old – it’s pretty good. We already have a little studio set-up with really bright studio lights, sheeting, tripod etc. – so I’m good for some experimentation. Now I just need to figure out how to take photos. And get a steadier hand….
