I love the soft effect it has. I'm not one for super-sharp, HD-like pictures. I like more a more artistic looks. my husband is a fan of it too.
I could never get close-ups like the one here with my other camera, no matter how many settings I played with. This camera is far faster than my other camera too -- and it takes video, long video; with sound. And it's good video. I'm so excited.
I'm also very excited about the project that I finished today. The back of my garden is very exposed in the spring. I grow sunflowers in that area to get screening, but it isn't effective until late summer. I also had a grape vine that really did not have anything proper to climb. It has been climbing all over my lilac for the last ten years.
So I decided to take care of both problems with one solution - a trellis-fence. We got some large branches from the compost center. I installed them like fence posts, tore the grape vines from the lilac, wound them around the posts and tied them on with some rope. What a difference it makes. And once it leafs out, it will be awesome. Now I won't have to wait until late summer for decent screening.
