For the first couple of days, I’d been keeping myself busy with other things and didn’t make time to try out the new camera. I didn’t make the time to, or … I didn’t want to? I don’t know, I’d been overly ambivalent about the whole denting my life savings exercise, but all that changed late last evening. After 83 test shots at home and familiarizing myself with some settings, I stepped out into the darkness and biting cold to take a bunch of pictures. I am pleased to report I am very impressed.
Here’s one of them. There was no noise, no blur, no struggling to auto-focus, no chromatic aberration, no spherical aberration, no dead pixels, no nonsense. Just a clear capture of exactly what I saw. All I had to do before uploading it to delineate was scaling. There was no need for the usual subtle tweaking of any sort.
Here’s a crop of the unscaled image for those curious. And for those who aren’t as well.
