I know, I know. Not the most exciting of photos. But all will be revealed so keep reading.
Oi you, don't leave. I said keep reading !!!
Last Wednesday evening we were strolling along the beach at Tenby, partly to walk off the excellent meal we'd just had at The Park Hotel and partly to enjoy the view, when I thought of something Gareth, Daphne's son-in-law, had done earlier. He'd used binoculars in front of his camera to take a photograph.
Having now got binoculars, thanks to a lovely birthday pressie from Daphne and Stephen, I decided to give it a go. It wasn't easy but at least I had the compact Nikon rather than the Canon dSLR and so the tiny lens did neatly fit onto one of the binocular eye pieces. It was still hard to line both up to get an image on the viewing screen and then press the shutter but my first attempt wasn't half bad.
So we're back to the photo at the top of the post. That was the view of the boats out on the water with the Nikon on full zoom. See the black hulled boat in the middle ?
Well here it is through one eye piece of my binoculars.
Not bad eh ? I can't see it replacing my dSLR zoom lens but if I'm ever out and about with the binoculars and my Nikon and see something interesting at a distance, at least I'll have an option.
Next up will be to use the camera's movie mode and then whole new experiences could open up !
I feel a trip to the local multiplex coming on.
Ice Age 3 dvd anyone ?
