Fun with My New Camera

I was fortunate enough to attend a beautiful wedding this past weekend. In addition to enjoying the ceremony, the love, and the food (excellent cake), I also had plenty of opportunities to try out my new camera. One of the images is shown below, it is a decoration from the reception.

I was impressed by the quality of the full resolution image. If you have the desire, you can view it as well: Full Resolution Version (2.7 MB)

In choosing a digital camera my main concern was the ability to photograph various hardware items for my thesis. This includes diagnostics that are very small. Most of the probes I use feature tips that are on the order of one millimeter (see image at right). Good optics are required for focusing on such items. Good light sensitivity is also important for small scales.

I settled on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 and am pleased with it. The probe tip photo above demonstrates the quality for my professional needs. It is so much fun playing with this new toy that I might just start posting many more photos on this site.
