I can haz camera?

I would love to graduate from my point and shoot camera. I did move up when I bought my HTC Incredible smartphone. With 8mp, I have twice the resolution of my old 4.1mp Sony Cyber-Shot. But I want a camera that can take action shots (multiple frames per second – the fast click, click, click of fancy cameras), the ability to capture images in low-level lighting, and multiple lens options for wide angle shots and super-crazy zoom.

I haz no dinero for camera. *sniff* Suuuuure, I could swing it. But we’re trying really, really hard to get out of the debt. But when I am reminded of what a fancy camera can do it makes me want to look a little more closely at the no-interest for 12-months loan they were offering at the Ritz Camera I visited not too long ago.

And I was recently reminded of what a fancy camera can do.

Last Saturday I visited Como Park Zoo in St. Paul with Craig from the Minneapolis Skeptics for Darwin Day. He owns a Nikon D7000. It looks like this:

Image source

*drool* He was using a zoom lens and took bunches and bunches of photos. I was having fun snapping along. I have a pretty good eye for composition, but I think I’ve reached the limit of my current technology. Have a look – what do you think?

These small photos do not do Craig’s photos justice. I encourage you to click on his photos to see the incredible detail on his flickr stream.

Monkeys in the primate house. Challenges: Low, filtered light, fast-moving subjects, thick glass with reflections.

My photo – HTC Incredible, Auto settings, camera lens pressed to the glass to avoid reflection.

Craig’s Photo:

Emperor Tamarin DSC_1664

Snow Leopard enclosure. Challenges: Dark subject against snow, outdoor natural light – cloudy, fast-moving subject, fencing.

My photo, zoomed in as far as possible (unable to get close enough to fence to place camera between links):

Yeah, I’m jealous.

    I enrolled in a photography class out of sheer boredom. Or stupidity, I don’t know. It’s a horrible class that meets way too far from my home and is filled with 60-year-olds who need help finding the ON button. I bang my head against the desk everytime I am there. Thankfully, we only have one class left.

    I did, however, learn something there – something you learned through normal human interaction instead: there are certain limitations to those tiny point and shoot cameras. Since most of the pictures I take these days are indoors, in our architecturally very unfortunate windowless apartment, the lens the size of a nickel and no possibility of changing the shutter speed simply can’t perform. Period. And so, I drool with you.

    How about getting the camera together and sharing it? – I can have it every other weekend, and then Mondays, Wednesdays…. Kidding. But the thought of shared custody did cross my mind 🙂 I’m desperate.

    Your lens is the size of a nickel? You lucky duck! 😉 Oy, if you lived closer I’d totally camera-share with you. I’m the really tempted by the Ritz camera store’s 9month no interest payment plan. I could swing $70/month…
