A couple of weeks ago I took a family holiday to Florida to do the whole Disney Parks with the kids and the chance for Dad to see Kennedy Space Centre.
As with all trips the cameras have to come along although these days I’ve calmed down a little.
There was a time I’d be up at the crack of dawn nearly each day visiting areas of interest looking for the ultimate location and light.
These days I tend to plan things a little more and if I come home with one great image I’m happy.
Work has been good this year and I have been investing in some new equipment that I’ve wanted and in some cases needed to replace.
One item I wanted for this trip was a high quality point and shoot and I purchased a 20 megapixel Sony camera.
The idea behind this was I could fit this in my pocket and in my toolbox whilst travelling on my scooter (see my last post) and if I spotted something for my compositing archive the camera was of high enough quality to capture what I needed compared to the limitations of my iPhone.
The camera has been fantastic investment, not quite as easy to focus as my Canon workhorse but very usable, In fact my Canon gear never saw daylight during the whole trip in the states.
I also shot a lot more images and had a lot more fun without the very very heavy Canon dragging around my neck in the 99 Degree heat.
The Sony won’t obviously replace Canon as my professional camera kit but it has certainly been liberating and fun to use and the quality simply superb.
Here are a few images captured at the Kennedy Space Centre during the visit.
