So my fancy pants new point and shoot arrived a few days ago. Life’s been a bear and I haven’t had time to properly test it out yet. But like a kid at Christmas, I couldn’t resist walking out into the back yard and snapping a few shots just to see what this baby could do.
For interest, the camera is a Sony DSC-HX9V. And, no, I don’t have a clue what all those little numbers and letters signify but it seems to be a great all around option for those not wanting to lug around a DSLR but wanting more than just a standard point and shoot. You can get more info on it here .
Now I’ve got five weeks to learn how to use all those buttons and fancy settings before I hit the road for New York. Wish me luck!
