Glad you liked. This shot is a measure of how long some lights in Springfield are. This particular one gave me enough time while sitting in my car to take my camera out of my pocket, turn it on, zoom and frame the photo, focus, and take 3 shots before it changed.
Yeah, I get it! There are a few like that around here, but usually if I’m taking photos while driving, it’s with the phone (unless I’m not the one driving). I am a long way from mastering that, a long way. I bet you have a nice bunch of cameras at home….including something small enough to fit in your pocket. I’m tempted sometimes to get one, but so far, not tempted enough.
Hate to disappoint you, Lynn, but the only cameras I own are: (1) A Brownie Hawkeye camera, given to me by my grandmother when I was 13 years old, and which I actually took pictures with in college; (2) A 35mm Honeywell Pentax single- lens reflex camera that replaced the Brownie after my sophomore year; (3) A Polaroid 180 model that I used professionally to check my lighting; (4) One of the first Polaroid SX-70 cameras given to me by Polaroid while I was doing freelance work for them; (5) A Nikon F100 single-lens reflex that was the last camera I used as a professional; (6) an old Panasonic Lumix 8 megapixel pocket camera that Pixetera started with; and (7) a Nikon Coolpix pocket camera that i’ve been shooting with for about 2 years.
The Hasselblad and 4×5 were sold for a pittance several years ago.
Wish I had my old Brownie Hawkeye…I still remember the feel of that gray, ribbed shutter button. And funny, I had a boyfriend in the early college years who had a Pentax SLR. As for other cameras I’ve had, I think I’ve broken as many as I’ve outgrown, but there are a few of them in a box somewhere. What’s most interesting is that you’re shooting with the Coolpix, cool! :-)
I got the Pentax after I attended the march against nuclear testing in 1962 and was totally embarrassed to be covering it for my college newspaper with the Brownie Hawkeye while others had 35mm single lens reflex cameras and looked ultra professional :)
Pentax was a really popular brand at the time.
The Coolpix was given to me by a friend to replace the 8 megapixel Lumix I had been using. It’s fine up to a point but the lack of complete manual controls and an eye-level viewfinder is very frustrating at times. Right now I have my eyes on the new Sony RX 100 VI, which is everything I’ve been waiting for in a pocket-sized camera. Somewhat pricey though and its low-light performance is up for debate as far as I can tell.
