The Moon

Experiments with my new toy - a Fuji Finepix S1000. I got home this evening to see the Moon rising over the building opposite, so I thought I'd get out the tripod, have a play with the settings in manual mode and see just what it is capable of.

OK, so the focus isn't quite right, that's my fault, not the camera's. The second two pictures were taken a bit later than the first one to see how good the contrast is. I have to say, I'm impressed. I've been using my Grandad's old film SLR for years and I love it. This isn't a replacement for the SLR, but it's heaps better than my knackered old compact camera that I've been using since the summer of 2003! One day I'll give in and get a digital SLR, but not just yet.
