p52 | bloom

So I haven't really used my Canon G12 much since I got it. I guess I reach for the Nikon dSLR automatically when I need a camera. But this has made feel a little bad; I mean, I spent money on it, so I shouldn't just keep it on the shelf. So out it came this week to document some tulips I picked up to trick myself into feeling more positive about spring one day when snow surprisingly decided to fall again.

I have to say I'm not sure about this camera. It did pretty well with regards to white balance and exposure (I find that my Nikon underexposes a bit too much) and colour here, but I had it on ISO100, and there is just far (faaaaaaar) too much noise for that to be ok.

Then I tried shooting something a little more colourful. The same settings, I basically just turned around in the kitchen so the lighting was the same, and the result was completely different.

No noise but the colour on the darker bits are all wonky here. I am pleased with how close I can get to the subject though. That is something I can't do with the lenses I have for my Nikon.

All in all, I guess it's an ok camera considering but it totally doesn't compare to a dSLR.
