Photo of the Day

Flying "Dannebrog" - the official name of our flag.
It is old Danish language and a contraction of two word and it literally means "the Danes Cloth"

 
^nice flag shot on breezy day!

took a new 'travel' camera out for test drive this morning. sony rx10 mod iv, all-in-one mirrorless. evf, 28-600mm eq lens, f2.4-4. seems to work ok; somewhat lighter than the dslr. 1" sensor gave fairly good (low) noise response. focus point selection seems to be my biggest challenge for these newfangled cameras.

 
Old boat and an old Swedish nuclear plant in the background - it was shot down in 2005 and they are still in the process of taking it down.

 
Scandinavia's tallest building "Turning torso" which stands in Malmö, Sweden.
Photo taken from the Danish side of the water.

Impressive stuff! Had to google that camera, looks like a great "all in one" bit of kit. I see you mentioned a bit about it, but how are finding it overall so far?

thx, warren, it's a nice camera, results are very good. i had an earlier version of this a few years ago for a summer trip and it was perfect. i didn't want to lug the nikon but wanted to have something with good low light performance and reach of an 18-300 lens. so that sony pretty much filled the bill. after the summer, i ebayed it and recovered most of original cost.

this current version further improves the focus system, expanding the number of focus points. again, i'll use it for the summer then probably sell it. biggest downside, is simply having to navigate through sony's arcane (to me) settings and menus.
