…..He Who Cast The First Stone…..

……Knocked the Philistine on his ass, or so the story goes (1 Samuel 17 if you don’t believe me).

Today the Sony RX1 (David) was delivered and I’ve had a lot of fun with it, though I confess to mostly shooting flowers, due to a lack of other available subjects.  And I don’t do ‘street’.

First things frst, I am used to Sony, the way the menus work, button placement, creative/picture styles etc so it took no time to be comfortable. Straight away there was a problem; the autofocus module is BAD, and I don’t mean in a good way. After about ten minutes trying to take pictures of Kira (during which I reckon I captured three) it gave up altogether and refused to focus at all. Sigh.

I took all the bits apart that I could and started from scratch. Still sh!t, but it works sporadically so I exploited that whilst taking the dog for a walk round the block (check me out, Paula Radcliffe, NOT).

DSC00213 (2)-Edit (800x800)The image quality is SUPERB. Yes, the D600 is great too and a lot smoother in operation due to the AF inconsistencies, but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this camera. The metering is great, its built like a tank, the LCD is excellent.

What more could a girl ask for………..apart from functioning autofocus?

I haven’t tested the low light performance or the inbuilt flash, but I will get around to that.

For now, suffice to say it’s a winner. 🙂
