FujiFilm FinePix S5100 Digital Camera


As I mentioned in a pervious post in this section, for almost four years now, I have been using a FujiFilm FinePix 2400Z camera, which is a basic point and shoot consumer oriented camera with 3X optical zoom, and 2 megapixel resolution.

This camera allowed me to take some good pictures over the years. However, it was time for an upgrade, now that the technology is more mature, and for the same price point, one can get more features. Specifically, I wanted a more powerful zoom that can give better framing and get closer to subjects, specially wildlife. I also wanted more manual control of various features.

Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (or Gorsky) (1863-1944) was a Russian photographer that offers a vivid visual portrait of the Russian Empire at its height, and more importantly, the architecture, the scenery and the people of the lands that constituted this empire, including the Caucasus region, and Central Asia.

Photography chronicles


This page is sort of a chronicle on my adventures in photography over the decades.Currently, I do not do much in photography, apart from the usual family stuff, and some interesting things I find, such as flowers, nature scenes, and the like.The first camera I owned was a 35mm Minolta Uniomat II from around 1960, which I inherited from my late father. It was a range finder type, with a match needle exposure meter built in, and of course nothing automatic.
