Taking reference photos with my phone is fine but frustrating. I’m often wanting to zoom in at a higher quality than it allows and I find it difficult to see what I’m shooting in bright sunlight. But the size and weight is pretty unbeatable. So what to do?
It turns out that there are a new breed of cameras that are as small as a classic point and shoot but have great lenses and a 30x optical zoom. Yes – 30x optical. Not digital. Digital sucks and that is all the iphone has.
So James and I suited up and went out to test. A brisk trot down to the river through Harvard yard to work up an appetite for the main event.
Here are some example shots.
