|'Untitled' Taken with a Nikon Coolpix L120|
Afterwards I decided to take a stroll, the sun was already setting I had about 35 minutes of natural light, the weather really wasn't great but I wanted to try out the Nikon Coolpix L120.
This is the first time I really used the Nikon Coolpix L120, a point and shoot camera that was a gift. It's a pretty good camera with some nice features although the manual controls are some what limited. My usual digital point and shoot is a very compact Samsung S1030 . A camera that again is limited (compared to SLRs) but the size really makes up for the reduction in manual settings. A link to a previous post with photographs taken with the Samsung S1030 can be found here.
These days I always carry a camera wherever I go, at the bare minimum a point and shoot camera like the above mentioned or an SLR. Most times I will carry both a point and shoot (film or digital) and either an SLR or DSLR. This time it was a Canon FTb and a 35-80mm lens plus the Nikon Coolpix L120.
The reason I've not used the Nikon Coolpix L120 more often is because of its unusual size. As it has a larger and more advanced lens then the Samsung s1030 it is too big to fit in your pocket but not big enough to warrant carrying a bag around. It's one of those cameras that's ideal to throw in a camera bag along with larger equipment or for storing in the car in case you need a camera, I will have to definitely use it more often.
I'm currently reading 'Batsford's Modern Chess Openings 15th Edition by Nick de Firmian' in my pursuit to be a better Chess player.
