My DSLR is still away, so I decided that a new compact camera would be required to take some images for one of my assignments.
After doing some research and looking at a couple of magazines I chose a Nikon AW100. (Aw = All weather).
The camera is small but it gets good reviews. You can also use it underwater if you want! One interesting feature is that you can set it to shoot in black and white, not new I hear you say, but when you change it the display on the rear shows the image in black and white before you take a shot. (My own Nikon takes and displays the image in colour once you have taken it you then you change it to black and white.
The benefit will be that I can see the shapes that I am looking to capture on the back of the camera before I tasks the shot.
The camera arrived a couple of days ago so I’ll be out over the next few days capturing images of graveyards, which is going to be my subject matter.
updates will follow.
I will also be able to show where the images were taken as the camera has built in GPS and world mapping.
