New Camera! Luv it!

My friend Kathy in Missouri posted a video of her emu babies. Michael and I were so jealous of the video quality. I use a tiny credit card sized HD camera but the quality is not up to par. For still shots I have a number of cameras from Canon Rebel XT to a Canon Mark III. Both are good cameras but heavy and inconvenient. What I have been looking for is a still camera that also takes good HD video. I wanted it small enough that I can carry around the ranch and not need a chiropractic treatment at the end of the day. I researched the camera Kathy has but finally decided on a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V. It was delivered late yesterday and I could barely sleep thinking about trying out my new camera. I fed the animals and let them out before 6:00 a.m. instead of making them wait until 7:30. They didn’t seem to know what to make of it. My camera has lots of features and buttons, and dials, and menus, and I am slowly feeling my way around. I wanted to share some of the still shots I took today and hopefully some video tomorrow. In no particular order, here are some of the pictures I shot today. Obviously Michael shot the picture of me and the emus.

    Wow Mom the pictures are great. You always amaze me with your pictures they are always so incredible. I know where Mandy gets it from.

  2. Kathy says

    WOW! Those are GREAT pictures! I was thinking the same thing Vanessa said, too. WHAT is that last picture? Anxiously awaiting your videos!

    Many of those pictures are greeting card material! Beautiful; and the one of the emu against the clear blue sky made me chuckle….mostly because to the super fine feathers that could be seen at the top of its head.
