New Camera...

Since I started writing this blog, I've been really unhappy with the pictures I've been taking, so with that, and my burgeoning interest in photography, in mind I went out and got myself a new camera.

I tried a couple of different electronics shops around and about in York, but finally settled on Jessop's as it has a good reputation and really helpful staff.  I went in with less than half an idea of what I wanted/needed and came out very pleased with my new camera, the Nikon Coolpix L810 (here it is if anyone wants to have a look).

I went for a bridge camera in the end because I'm nowhere near confident enough yet to be using a DSLR but still wanted some cool functionality and good results.  Anything beyond point and shoot in auto mode is pretty new to me so I've been spending a lot of time in the last week experimenting with different modes (macro is my new love!) and getting some results that I'll be proud to start posting.  (Below is one of the random close-up shots I tried, I thought it turned out quite well)

I've got a lot of posts written that are just waiting for me to start adding pictures and I can't wait to get started with them!

  2. Hi, thanks for checking out my blog :) Yours is really cute too.

    The camera does auto focus on still images but I haven't tested it out properly on video yet. Hope that helps xo
