Fujifilm versus Nikon

Lake summer 2011

I live on the north side of Wednesbury, this pool or lake is on the south side. I’m not really sure if it’s big enough to be called a lake, but looks like one. This picture looks good, but it was taken in 2011 on a sunny day with my Fujifilm S5600.

The Fujifilm S56000 takes photos at 72 dpi (dots per inch) and is OK for that type of shot. It does have it’s limitations though. The main one is the resolution isn’t good enough for photographs of people, such as wedding photography. I also had to add contrast to this photo in editing. I needed a better camera! I have just bought a Nikon D3200, this one shoots at 400 dpi, but doesn’t have such a good zoom. I’ve only had it less than a week so the photography and editing is very different.

This was one of the first photos I took with the Nikon D3200. It was taken in more or less the same place. This was the best one that I took last week. I think I need to get used to the settings and it was late afternoon. This is at 400 dpi. I don’t think it’s any better really. I did get better pictures on Saturday in the park though and I think the pictures will improve as I get used to the camera and different editing. There is no need to increase the contrast with the Nikon in editing, but some photos did need to be made lighter because of the poor light. I could shoot those with a wider aperture or on a slower speed next time. Want to see my photos from the park? I’ve used those for today’s post on A Zillion Ideas. Why not click the link and pop over there to see my pictures of Brunswick park? I think they are much better.
