Well, I suppose I could come up with some tenuous link between today’s post and Christmas, if I tried really hard. But, instead, I thought I’d share this shot taken in Dartmoor National Park on New Year’s Day. This is for you, Gunta. 😉
While we were away, I rented a new camera, the Sony NEX-7 from the good folk at hireacamera.com. I need a lightweight alternative to my big brick for hiking but I want to try before I buy. Over the next few days I will be sharing some of the images I took and my impressions of this high-end compact system camera.
THANKS, Rachael… I love it. I’m really needing some color as the days have been totally monochrome here. You’ve even captured my favorite shades of pink and blue (and everything in between)! 🙂
Glad you liked it 🙂
I will be interested to hear how you like the Sony. Several others have recommended it to me.
Hi Sue. I will do a detailed review next week, once the children have gone back to school.
That’s a great sky Rachael – have often thought it would be great to have a compact to carry around, I can’t usually manage to carry my camera bag for long!
I am probably going to try the new Fuji XE-1 too so watch this space!
Beautiful. Love that little bit of sun just peeking out.
Thanks. It was a super sky. If you looked straight up it seemed as if you could see the world turning.
How interesting that you can rent a camera.. I never knew that 🙂
It’s jolly useful. More usually, I have rented lenses for holidays, long lenses for wildlife in particular. The top telephotos cost the proverbial arm and leg to buy and I just wouldn’t get enough regular use out of them to make the cost worthwhile but I can rent for several holidays without even coming close to the purchase price.
