Incredibly intelligent little gem
on 30 December 2016
So far - loving it - though bought the Alexander White book to go with it so that I can benefit from more of the incredible range of things this little beauty can do. Usually an aim and shoot girl, this makes me want to try and use a bit more functionality.
I got it on the basis of many reviews, particularly on amazon and particular the spectacular one by Proff. It replaces a well out of date Canon SLR that never got anywhere near as many outings due to its size.
My major challenges are to learn to use it better, but also to find a way of protecting it. I do resent having to pay a fortune for a sony case, so am still searching around for options. It is also a challenge to learn to hold the camera without holding my finger over the flash (its soooo tiny compared to my old SLR).
I like the wifi aspect, which was the main reason for going to the mk 2 version - and sure enough it worked well enough to upload a photo onto my smart phone whilst stopping over at a remote country pub for a break from walking. The tilt screen hopefully will do the job in bright sunlight - which is a bonus when you are starting to lose your close vision.
It seems to pick out detail in amazing depth, just from pointing and pressing. I am hoping I can advance to better things!
