New camera and a bunch of photos

So after researching and reading and agonizing over which little point&shoot camera I wanted to pick up, I finally settled on the new Nikon P5000.

Major feature rundown:

  • Weighs around 280g with battery and memory card. Super light.
  • It’s 3.9 x 2.5 x 1.6 in. Tiny, but not so tiny that it’s awkward to hold/use.
  • Excellent ergonomics/design. Controls are intuitively laid out, easy to access and use, and the menu system is very nice.
  • 10 megapixel.
  • Kick ass macro mode.
  • Automatic, semi-automatic (Shutter priority and Aperture priority), and full manual mode. I used full manual mode for all the pictures I took this morning, and it’s dead simple to use.
  • Drawback: no RAW support. This is a bit of a drag, but is the only drawback I’ve found so far.

All that aside, here are the shots I took while walking home from my doctor’s appointment this morning: May 11 walk.

Random note: turns out using the “Rotate picture” feature on Flickr completely hoses the EXIF data for those images. I’ll have to re-upload the ones that need to be rotated.

    I’ve heard of this camera.
    But I’ve never noticed that rotate on flickr messes up exif.
    Now you have me curious to go check!

    Congratulations!
