A picture is worth a thousand words. And my camera has recently completed 10,000 pictures. So that’s 10 million words! But I’ll try to sum it up in a few hundred words here. Over the past 20 months or so, I have used this wonderful gadget to take scores of pictures and videos of the many memorable moments of my life. I whole heartedly agree that it was every cent well spent by my brother who purchased it for a princely sum of $400. It has been very reliable and hasn’t given me any problems at all so far and is working as well as it was 20 months back. The picture and video quality is awesome, as evident from the high class photos and videos in my orkut profile!
This camera has been used to capture many cherished moments. It has been used for the wild birthday celebrations in BITS, the farewell, the many trip and treks I have gone on, family occasions and most innovatively perhaps, to scan books and notes before exams! I wasn’t an avid photographer before I got this camera. I couldn’t be relied on to take a clear picture. Now I can safely say I am a semi professional [self proclaimed!]. I have learnt to use the more sophisticated modes of the camera. I have moved beyond the ‘only-auto-mode’ phase. There is still lot to be learnt though because this camera is loaded with many adjustable settings. Besides, this camera is very handy and easy fits into the pocket like a cell phone. Its sleek looks certainly catch the eye!
The only feature that is lacking perhaps is flash with the video mode present in some cell phone cameras. Also it is quite difficult to capture clear pictures of scenes with low illumination. I have recently purchased a tripod to aid in me in that regard. But unlike the camera, it is not very portable. Hence I don’t use it much.
I am very attached to it and it is one of my most prized possessions. That makes me a little possessive about it. So guys please don’t feel bad if I hesitate to lend it to you. Thank you SONY for this brilliant piece of engineering. The photos in this blog are some of my best pictures.
