I’ve been having tons of fun with the superzoom option on my 200 dollar camera (12x optical and 8x digital), and here are some examples:
- The notes of some UCB administrator during the speech in the (very) big auditorium. My 12×8 zoom got me this far, but that’s pretty much it. No way my hands could be still enough to get that much detail:
- Random house way up on some distant hill, taken from a shady spot at Leland. I get some good details, surprisingly, since I was able to hold the cam steady:
- Mount Umunhum (thanks, Joey), taken from Leland. If my hands were steadier and if there existed no atmosphere for light to be distorted in, this picture would’ve come out better.
- Random parking permit on a random car:
- Balls sticking out of the sculpture garden:
- Circular rainbows, taken while outside “working on physics”:
- Two very bad images of Venus, taken two hours after sunset. As you can tell, my hands weren’t as stable as they should be:
- And the finale! A power structure:
Superzooms are particularly fun to play with I love optics.
