After much dawdling trying to find the original, I have finally purchased a new power cord for my old digital camera. Though it’s ten years old and has fewer megapixels, this chunky old Sony has a beautiful Carl Zeiss lens and a lot more manual control than my newer, more portable Casio Exilim. I was really excited to get into the kitchen with it.
Mind you, the last time I really used manual controls on a camera was more years ago than I want to admit, in a college photography class. So these pickle photos are still basically point-and-shoot, but when I brought them up on the computer (the display on the back of this camera is tiny, and it’s hard to tell how good the images are), I was really pleased. They required very little post-processing, starting out crisp, with beautiful color and clarity. I’m delighted with how it captured the delicate translucence of the finished pickles. I’m shrinking the pictures down for ease of loading anyway – megapixels matter a lot less than that lovely lens.
