Super Moon

    Newer Older

    We were lucky to have the chance to go camping the weekend of the Super Moon; and what a Super Moon it was. You could literally read a book that evening in the moonlight.

    Went to the Boy Scouts Outdoor Recreational Center (BSORC); just 15 minutes from home as part of another Indian Tribes (Nation) campout. Was (as always in SoCal) *perfect* weather and the Moon was truly spectacular.

    This is the first pic I'm posting with my new camera: the SONY NEX-7. Seems I'm not the only one to have come to a similar conclusion as to this being a potentially great camera (when looking at the specs), as I've seen many great reviews in the field on this camera.

    While its not exactly the best HDR/wide-angle camera out there, it does have 24MP going for it, and will eventually get the glass to go wide-angle in the style I like. While I love my LX5, its starting to show it's age and I decided a few weeks back to upgrade to another quasi-point-n-shoot and the NEX-7 more than fits the bill. Though I wouldn't consider it a pocket camera, nor dSLR; its unique in that its a hybrid in-between the two domains.

    Internal HDR shot (yes, Sony NEX-7 does HDR!) taken of the Super Moon at our campground in the Irvine Regional Park.

    Irvine, California.

      A shot facing in the opposite direction, but this time non-HDR, and in high-ISO:

      Looks like a great facility for the boys. Not like scouting in the old days.

      Fine scene over there my friend. What's the exif data for that non HDR shot? Was that a Pentax?

      I'm still with my LX5.... and I guess that if I consider to grow up... I'll go for a dSLR and leaving the LX5 as a great everyday camera...
      Anyway... impressive results.

      Thanks y'all!

      @cheater5 - Yeper, not like the old days at all. They even had *heated* showers there!

      @shutterbroke - The ISO on the second shot posted in the comments was 6,400.

      @jolli - Most, most kind words from you as always!

      @walimai - LX5 is still a great camera, I was just ready for an excuse to buy a new one! ;-)
