Thread: Show off your Compact & Bridge Photos

    Show off your Compact & Bridge Photos

    Similar to Antonio's iPhone thread but I would be very interesting to see the images obtained using non-DSLR equipment. I will start the ball rolling with a selection taken with a FinePix S7000 bridge camera.

    OK, here are a few of mine. All taken with a Fuji Finepix 9500 bridge camera (I found that painful to confess). Actually, they are pretty nice shots for a bridge camera. Perhaps Donald can have my 5D after all.

    How Do You View You

    I've entered a few in the contests, but here's another taken with my Nikon P90.
    f/1/8 aperture, ISO 100, 16.8mm, 1/200sec exposure.

    P.S Steve, I really like your sunset picture (3rd from the top) the way the clouds reflect off the water is great. I also like your dragonfly picture it is really clear for a point and shoot!

    and Rob how do you get such nice black backgrounds in yours?

    Thanks for this thread - great idea!

    Here's a couple of shots I got today with my Canon SX20 in macro mode. I've cropped them to zoom in on the bee a bit more.

    All shots taken with my Ricoh GX200
    I find the camera works for both macro (actually macro is great, because you can get as close as 1 cm from your subject) and for landscape shots.

    If you mean the flowers, I either use a large black art mount board (the stuff that's used for mounting photos). Or, if I'm outdoors I use the black surface of a fold-up reflector/diffuser - one of those 5-in-1 thingees, like this thingee. Pretty cheap, and light to carry.

    A nice portrait shot you have there.

    Re: How Do You View You

    What an excellent bag of images. Rob that FinePix 9500 was the camera I was considering before I plumped for my 450D. It certainly would have lived up to expectations although I expect the photographer has a lot to do with the final output. The bridge cameras are excellent for macro work and you would need to spend a fair bit on a lens to get the definition the FinePix bridges produce. I love the rose shot Lily Quartz but if you are using substitute backgrounds (particularly black) it sometimes helps to used a small feathered blur brush along the edge. Super shots from everyone and it shows what a non-DSLR can do in the right conditions. I now know that a bridge cannot substitute for a DSLR but if you just need a light camera to stick in your bag they take some beating.

    Galley Wench

    Taken at the Erie Basin Marina. There was a group of kids serving as oarsmen on a schooner in the harbor. I know you're not supposed to use digital zoom but it was an experiment in controlling camera shake.
    Camera and setting: Nikon P90, ISO 100, 1/250s shutter, f/8 aperture, 441.6mm zoom. Shot in jpeg, imported to Elements 8 as Camera Raw and adjusted for exposure by adjusting the recovery slider, contrast, and brightness. Also, adjusted for noise. It was difficult getting a good exposure because the image bounces in the viewfinder, the boat was moving at a good clip (luckily at an angle towards me), and the obvious pitch of the boat.

    The wonders of digital photography.

    It's not really visible but the color of the water was actually brown in the foreground and green in the background. Taken directly from the camera the color looks almost continuously blue. In Camera Raw, if you adjust the color temperature the actual color of the water becomes apparent.

    Actually it IS visible, especially when you click on the picture to enlarge it. I really like the composition and the colors layers on the water. Maybe it would even look better without the small boat on the right side... just a thought of course, don't be offended But must be easy to erase I think.

    Tamara,

    Not offended at all, I did try one crop, taking out the abutment on the left and decided to leave it in. Thanks for the comments and critique.

    Mike,

    Great concept, you could even add some blue streaks if you are into computer generated effects.
