    morning all :)

    Anyone got a new camera lately? Ive been lugging a big DSLR round the parks but everyone tells me that the smaller ones are as good as or better now

    any suggestions?

    Last year we did three things: used my DSLR, which got stupidly heavy after a few hours. We also used a GoPro which is great because it's so tiny but the picture quality is pretty good. But the best photos and most convenient happened to be our IPhones. Cameras on them are great, picture quality is good and there's no faffing about trying to upload them from one place to another.

    Yeah. Shutter speed on the phones is fast enough for Wishes, though weirdly they don't do well inside if you don't use the flash. Took some pics at the Soirée in the castle. Without flash the pictures were a little dark. With flash they were over exposed.

    Got a new camera for work. Some of you know that I work in a full dome planetarium. Talked the powers that be into buying me a new camera. It is a Kodak sp360 camera that shoots in full dome. Very useful for timelapse work to show in the dome.
