Trying out the new camera

For Christmas my other half bought my a [Fujifilm HS10] – I have to say I was rather please, just what I wanted a camera that was a big upgrade from my last one. I do enjoy taking photos, even if most of mine aren’t the greatest, I just love giving it ago. I don’t think I could ever be bothered carrying an SLR around though. Maybe at some point I will. For now the promise of a 30x optical zoom is rather exciting. Anyway, I’ve now take a few photos with it that I’m quite pleased with and thought I’d share. Lets start with one of my favourite items, the Moon. Both of these photos were taken without a tripod, so I’m quite pleased:
Crescent Moon

January Morning Moon
Daytime Moon taken in Calgary.
Solar Eclipse Clouds + smartphone
The Moon takes a chunk out of the Sun; shame we missed the eclipse due to the cloud in the background but HTC + webcam saved us…
I took a bit of a walk around downtown Calgary last sat, was a beautiful +4C (shame about the snow right now, we have had one hot week with double digit positives!):
Nexus Building
The Nexus building on 8th St.
Escaping Moisture

Is it a plane.. yes, looks like KLM

Overall I’m rather pleased with the new camera and hope to take lots more pictures and to actually understand alot of what it can do.
