I recently convinced a group of 11 people to pose and have a photo taken – after which one of them asked what the picture was for. It was a little late to be asking that though. Thankfully the picture was just for a team photo and not for a more dubious cause:)
This made me think about how we capture moments and memories. I think our need to keep a hold of the good times, something to look back on, means that most of us are pretty happy to have our picture taken – maybe even without knowing where that picture will end up.
I have always liked taking pictures and this year I have finally taken the plunge and bought a semi decent camera that claims to have all the bells and whistles to compete with a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera. The Sony Nex-3 is the plastic clad baby sibling to the magnesium metal cased and more expensive Sony Nex-5.
The Nex 3 and Nex 5 have so far been given shining reviews from CNET and alike. I plan to get closely acquainted with the little wonder in the coming months. In the meantime, here are my impressions so far:
