test drive

I took my new Nikon P7000 for a test drive this afternoon on the Sky Trail. Even on its most basic settings, the camera sure takes some nice photos! (Compare these photos to the ones I took recently in the same area with my Blackberry's camera).

Landscape photos taken in low-lit, wooded areas are notoriously difficult. In order to produce an image the human eye/brain can relate to, the camera must literally choose from hundreds of 'subjects' located at different distances, select the ones it deems most important, focus on and capture each chosen subject separately, and then bring all these separate captures together as a clear, seamless 'final image.' Of course, a microprocessor crunches all this data in about a second or two! These photos were taken at Paya Bay Resort, Roatan, Honduras.
