5 Mega Pixel Camera $130 - 1st April 2006 - View the entire paragliding news archive

Time to take some stills
After concentrating on video for so long I thought it
was time to get a `proper` camera


I have been flying with my video camera for several years now, and whilst I have lots of nice footage, I don`t have many high quality stills.

All the decent photographs on my site have been shot by other people or have been shot by me with their cameras. I have been `making do` with the ability to capture from film. The results are somewhat low quality and often a little dissappointing.

My most recent camcorder has the ability to take digital stills on a separate memory card, but again this is still not a high enough quality to produce really clear shots. At only 1.3 Mega Pixels the images don`t survive close scrutiny.

I decided it was time I stopped trying to compromise and finally splashed out on a new digital camera.

I knew what I wanted. If I am to be able to submit images to magazines or create posters, it has to be high resolution, but many cameras that fit this description are big and bulky. I wanted something that was truly `pocket sized`, easy to use in flight with the ability to hold hundreds of top quality photos.

Well I believe I have found it, and I will be testing it out tomorrow when I go flying. You`ll be able to make your own decision about how good the results are.

Oh yeah, it takes video clips too. With my 1 GB card I`ll be able to get an hour of web video if I want. (Powered Paragliding in Ellicottville - video)



UPDATE:New camera works great! These are the snaps as promised. 1, 2, 3, 4
I`ve left them exactly as they came straight from the camera, just so you can get an idea of the sort of resolution it produces.
