Tips and observations
Sony DSC-W839 (2015-Jan 2018)
- A small, relatively inexpensive camera (sub $100) is more subtle and portable.
- A large, expensive, and bulky camera probably takes much better quality images and does it more consistently. I wouldn't know; I don't have one.
- My camera hates artificial light, natural light, and nighttime. That's why many pictures I take are on gloomy and/or rainy days.
Sony DSC-RX100 (2018-present)
- Compared to the old camera, it is cheating!
Taking shots from vehicles
- Taking pictures in a vehicle (car, bus, etc...) is more convenient insofar as you can cover more ground and see more sights. Particularly if taking pictures of buses.
- Also, it's the only way to take pictures on highways. Unless you're that daring...
- As far is picture quality, it is really hit or miss by a mile, but there are occasional gems (see sides).
- If you can, spray (clean) the windshield and open the window.
- But you can't clean bus or train windows.
- Windows reflect their surroundings. So if you take a picture through a window, you or what ever is around you may (will) end up in the shot.
- Taking pictures in a vehicle pretty much eliminates the chance of confrontation (by police, confused bus drivers, etc...)
Does anyone know what these are?
- They are call boxes.
