The Sunset Wizard at Work
Obviously I didn't take this photo. Cheryl seemed to have a fascination with taking photos of me when I wasn't looking this trip.
She took this with the Nikon P7700 handheld during the big wind storm we were in. Apparently she let go of the palm tree long enough to take a few photos. LOL
This was shot in the automatic mode with the internal ND filter turned on. I am still being amazed at the photos this camera produces. Even just in the automatic mode it seems to know how to make the correct settings in most every application.
The only thing I still don't like about the P7700 is the exposure wheel on top of the camera moves too easily and can be changed accidentally without knowing it. I found myself constantly checking the exposure wheel on the few occasions I actually got to use the camera this trip. Don't get me wrong, I like having the exposure wheel on the top of the camera, it is extremely handy. I just wish it didn't turn so easily. Cheryl apparently didn't have any problem with it so maybe I just have big fingers that get in the way. I would still highly recommend this camera to any one wanting the controls and picture quality of a DSLR but not wanting the DSLR.
