Very first shot with my new camera! (and the first camera I've ever had that wasn't a compact)
It's an exciting shot for me because it was taken on full zoom from about 3 meters away - my previous camera never would've gotten such a clear shot with that diffuse background no matter how close I was. I was excited looking at the image on the camera screen but to transfer it to my computer and be able to see the little whisps of spiderweb between the needles? More than I ever expected
It is a much slower camera than my previous one, which has meant I need to completely re-learn how to time action shots. The burst mode is also near useless compared to my previous camera, taking approximately 1 photo/second where my other one took several, so that's kind of disappointing given how much of my photography is done at horse shows and how much I'd come to rely on burst mode to make up for timing errors or catch unexpected moments. But on the whole despite the slowness, after a show this past weekend, I got far, far more useable, print-worthy photos than I ever have, and even most of the "bad" blurry/grainy/out-of-focus shots are still at least as good as the "good" shots from my previous camera.
It's just so nice to load up a batch of photos and not be constantly thinking "damn, that would've been such a good shot if only I had a better camera"You may download this image for personal private use, or shared using the provided share buttons.
