Red Dot Test Shots

I finally had a chance to spend a few minutes with Anita's new baby, and I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed for a point and shoot (albeit one that cost more than many mid-range DSLRs)... Noise levels are quite low, and the fast 2.0 lens at the wide end makes shooting at ISO 100 - 200 under low light conditions possible. And my favourite discovery so far is that at 24mm and a close focusing distance of less than a cm, you can get some really neat wide angle macros that you'd be hard pressed to reproduce with an SLR. On with the samples.

One of my two DIY pinhole cameras. Obviously, I messed with the curves and levels on this shot so it's not an accurate representation of what the Leica can do straight out of camera.

I love papercraft models.

Some fun with wide angle closeup distortion.

  1. i don't think i'd want to own a camera called STD..

  2. Wow, I hadn't even noticed that. Makes me like that camera even more!

  3. Loves the walnut shot. The lines are kinda action-filled like anime or something.

    Ya, that's pro talk.
