Yeah I'm not gonna update this anymore

New camera GET!

Heh, I had so many photo’s ready for reviews this week, but as usual, they were so blurry I couldn’t really use them. The thing is, my main camera used to be an old Sony Cybershot (one of the first! From back in 2004!) which DOES have a macro, but isn’t really… well… good. I found it hard to believe my iPhone’s 3G 2MP camera actually worked a lot better than the Cybershot, except it didn’t have a macro at all, so it’s useless for figure photography. I couldn’t stand it anymore, so I ordered a new camera yesterday, which arrived today: the Canon Powershot SX1 IS!

Following are photo’s with my three camera’s, trying to get as close to the figure as possible without it blurring (except the iPhone, I had to be at least 30cm away for it to be clear, but then it’s not a close up anymore, right?). You can click on the photo’s for their original sizes.

Canon Powershot SX1 IS (super macro – 10MP 3648×2736) Full size is over 7 megabytes, so loading may take a while!

All are made right after each other with the same setting (normal daylight through my window). It’s fun to see that the iPhone beats the Cybershot in terms of light, but the lack of macro ruins it. As far as my eyes tell, the Canon wins in every way possible over the other two (which, given the price, is not that surprising I guess).

Lastly, I resized the Cybershot and Powershot photo’s to the size of the iPhone photo (1600×1200) and put the three together for a final comparison.

In my opinion, totally worth the money.
