Walking Home

Posted by JSA Nov 8, 2007

 

I live about a mile from my office, so my daily commute consists of a glorious walk along the Chicago River. On my walk home last night, I wanted to test the DSC-W80's various settings for twilight shots and slow shutter speeds exposures. Of course, since it was in the mid-30's in Chicago, my gloveless shaking hands gave the steady shot technology all it could handle. Here are a few of my favorites:

Given the difficulty of shooting in the cold and wind, the camera did a remarkable job of maximizing image quality while minimizing human error.

A literal snapshot of comings, goings, and doings amidst the flurry of end of the year activities. Travels, actions and thoughts will be detailed, as I road test the Sony GPS-CS1KA Image Tracker around the hemisphere in connection with my digital camera.
