|finally getting the hang of it|
by the end of our outing
21 December 2022
Got gifted a new toy-camera for successfully navigating another sail around a star named Sun, immediately tested it out on myself, duh, and then, tested it out on an outing (video test footage forthcoming on theTube), forgot to set the date/time, loving the image quality on what is, essentially, a toy, &you may read my thoughts in the pics' captions to get the 'full story,' if one must, which one assumes one does, since one is here, observing what it is that I 'put out.'
I find the task of explaining the nuances of what I find compelling about this new camera's image-quality daunting. Thus, I have only uploaded boosted images as opposed to RAW. Yes, they are edited, but they have only been edited in such a way so as to "boost" the original quality of the image that the camera provided.
And so, these images are basically the closest thing to the original that I'm willing to upload for the masses (or half-dozen of you who visit this site, regularly, lol), cause I have an aesthetic standard to maintain.
Generally speaking, I find the image-quality of this particular camera to be quite fun. It's interesting. The combination of high megapixels and a shitty little lens has made for some compelling images, compelling light atmosphere, etc. But I'm also a perfectionist who is striving to be less so, and so, in the name of betterment, I've uploaded these nearly-raw first-images taken on my new* digital camera, the "Digital Camera | DC-01"
(yes, this is literally the name of the camera, and yes, I love it, the name, and well, also the camera, so far).
*this is the seventh digital camera (I can't even recall all of the film cameras of my past, sigh) that I've owned since 2004. I am not what one might consider a "collector," because really, I use them, regularly, but I do collect cameras. Obviously, my first three cameras are essentially defunct, and I don't have them anymore, but I do currently have four digital cameras in my possession (not including any digital devices with cameras), with access to a fifth (the bodybuddy/lifemate's GoPro), and I now use three of them, regularly. The two cameras I use serve two completely different purposes, and now, the bodybuddy/lifemate has given me a third camera that will have a use/purpose all its own. This is the sort of "collector" that I am, if anyone was curious.
