Playing with Mini



On the first of this month, I posted a Theme Day photo of my new little Minox camera.  Of course I still have and use my Nikon D90 most of the time, but it's fun to play with Mini.  It's limited, of course, with 5.1 pixels, an equivalent of a 42mm lens, an ISO of (I think) 100, and only three focusing distances.  Here are some examples of what it does. As you see, some photos are not too sharp, but honestly, I think it's me who wasn't too steady or else, as in the case of the garlic and plums, in reduced light.

You can have a look at its review right here.

And the answer to yesterday's puzzler:  The object on the left in the photo in question is a yoke used for people to carry buckets of milk on their shoulder.  The other 'bench' is used to remove dried corn from the cobs.  You straddle it, then rub the ear up and down on the pegs to remove the kernels.

il est tres beau ton nouveau 'petit' APN, et puis cela permet de se promener leger quand on fait des photos

Those shots look good. And I'll bet the Mini fits in your pocket when the Nikon cannot.

C'est amusant de ne pas savoir quel est le résultat des courses... et de s'amuser en regardant les photos.

After having read the review I still think it must be fun but wouldn't it be great to be able to afford a Leica M9? :-)
