New Old Camera
State of the art 2007.
I've had my eye on this make for a long time, waiting to spot a second-hand bargain. And here it is, at £360 – including a surprisingly good 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor (not pictured) and spare battery.
My chief interest is in its colour handling, which I'm hoping will prove more pleasing than that of my difficult Nikon D300, especially with warm colour palettes.
It's only really a 6MP camera, but I've come to see more pixels as a nuisance, so this doesn't bother me. And it has a second set of 6MP photosensors which are used to boost dynamic range and promote graceful handling of over-exposure. This gives an amazing ability to recover hilghights in over-exposed photos.
