Nothing professional here, just some opportunist shots done on the hoof using my new Nikon P7700.

Low light is more revealing and more of a challenge for a camera, so the fact that today wasn't sunny actually went in my favour for a trial run. That's also why I didn't stop after the sun went down.

All in all I'm pretty pleased, especially with the twilight shots which I think the camera coped with quite well.
Not much sun here...(slightly cropped)

Twilight shot.

Almost dark.

Not quite so dark...

Right now I don't think anything I have taken actually qualifies as a "good" photograph, but I have some great snapshots ;)It's a work in progress..


If it captured a moment in time for you, it's "Mission Accomplished".

There are some old family slides that I'm going to hunt down and turn into prints. The memories that can be captured like that are priceless.

If there is any way you can avail yourself to the expert mentoring, DO IT.


This forum is awash with people who have an expert perspective.... which gave me the idea that there could be an "Education" corner somewhere on UHH where subjects could be explained in a way that beginners could understand. For example, there could be threads titled "Exposure" etc.

Just a thought.

I often leave photos I have shot for several months before going through them so I can see them with an open mind


And THEN think "What the heck?".

There have been some good threads elsewhere on the subject of digital v film. I think digital has been responsible for quite a few "What the heck?" moments.

I have one on order. I am buying one because in my opinion they are good all-round pocketables. Other large-sensor bright lens compacts have 5X optical zoom or less, and I suspect that I would sooner or later find that to be a disappointing limitation (the P7700 can zoom to 200mm equiv).

You may consider the lack of a viewfinder a deal-breaker - personally I don't care that much. I have an old bridge camera with a viewfinder that I hardly ever used because I didn't like it. On the plus side, the P7700 has a fully articulated screen which, it seems, has its advocates (apparently it'll show its limitations only in the most extreme situations). Whether this is an issue for you or not will depend a lot on what you are used to.

DPreview have done a review of it, and it came out looking pretty good. There were very few negatives - the worst one as I remember is that it is relatively slow between shots (2 to 3 seconds). Again I don't find that much of a criticism, but if you are used to fast DSLRs, you may feel differently.

The sensor is a latest-generation CMOS sensor, and seems to be pretty good. DPreview compared it against an APS-C sensor from Sony amongst others and it gave the Sony a good run for its money.

I haven't got mine yet, so I can't give you a hands-on description. I hope it gets here before all of the autumn (or is that "fall" for you) colours have gone.
In addition I could add that by all accounts it has a fast subject-based autofocus and there is a manual control option for everything.

Hope that helps.

For a full zoom shot (and probably not that bright a day?) that's turned out pretty sharp.

The Nikon has the longer zoom - how important is this to you?
The Canon has only 5X zoom and starts at a wider angle. Which will be more useful, wide or long?
I've just ordered a P7700 because I think it comes closest to being a good all-rounder.

I've not tried this, but my guess is that when you're using the rule of thirds on people, is it going to work better if the person is looking towards (or across) the centre?

Variety is the spice of life. But the rule of thirds is probably difficult for a novice to get right. Personally I can live without the rule of thirds - I prefer symmetry and balance.

Especially if you were seeing a long dark tunnel with a light at the end...
