my photography

Fujifilm S602Zoom camera Since getting a digital camera (a Fujifilm S602Zoom) in October 2003, my interest in photography has been revived and I have been enjoying this new (to me) medium.

Apart from taking the inevitable family snapshots, I really enjoy photographing the ocean – specially on a windy or stormy days – and the mountains.

Below are some thumbnail images which link to larger versions of each image which are played through a slideshow. The quality of the thumbnails does not do the images justice, and even the larger on-line versions of these images are not as good as the fullsize originals.

Here are some specifications for the now-ancient Fujifilm S602Zoom:

  • 3.1 million effective pixel Super CCD
  • 6.0 million output pixels (2832 x 2128)
  • Fujifilm's 3rd generation Super CCD system
  • 6x aspherical zoom, f/2.8-f/11; 13 steps (equivalent to a 35 – 210mm 35mm camera)
  • 26.4x total zoom
  • macro mode focusses to 1cm
  • digital movie mode with sound; QVGA (320x240) or VGA (640x480) motion JPEG at 30 frames/sec
  • continuous shooting mode; 5 frames/sec at full resolution for 5 pictures, or 1.8 frame/sec for 40 pictures at 1 MegaPixel mode (1280x960)
  • black and white mode
  • voice recording modes with 30 sec picture annotations
  • built-in miniature LCD through-the-lens viewfinder and 2" colour LCD playback monitor
  • full exposure override, shutter and aperture priority with manual focus control & hot shoe mount
  • ISO Modes; 100/200/400, and 800/1600 at 1 MegaPixel mode
  • dual media slots support SmartMedia™, Compact Flash Type II or IBM Microdrive
My 35mm camera is an old Canon T70 which includes a gadget bag full of zoom lenses, flash units, tripods, etc – so much stuff now hardly used.
