  • From the Archive .... Phil is revisiting some early images

    G'day all

    During the state-wide covid health issues and households being requested to curb their regular meanderings around the suburbs, it has been a good time to do some housekeeping. A recent revisit to photos from the years going back to 2004 and various cameras will be mentioned in in later posts.

    Here's a few 2004 images with my first digital camera, the Fuji 'S-5000' ~ a 3mpx camera with 10x optical zoom, stretchable to 14x via digital zoom with no downsizing of the sensor's pixels (but 18x and 22x zoom possible with a lowering of pixels through what we now call from "L" to "M" to "S" pixels / image quality)

    1) Boorowa NSW - hand feeding the livestock during the drought

    exif- Fuji S-5000; 1/1100s x F9,0; ISO-400; lens at 4x zoom / 140mm FF-equiv

    2) Fuel Tanker / Road Train at 3-ways, north of Tennant Creek

    exif- Fuji S-5000; 1/550s x F6,3; ISO-160; lens at 8x zoom / 290mm FF-equiv

    3) Sunset over Banka Banka station, 100km north of Tennant Creek

    exif- Fuji S-5000; 1/320s x F4,5; ISO-160; lens at 14x zoom / 500mmmm FF-equiv

    4) Beach tracks from 4wd vehicles, Manning Point NSW

    exif- Fuji S-5000; 1/480s x F5,0; ISO-400; lens at 2x zoom / 70mm FF-equiv

    As always, feedback welcome

    All good images Phil, but #3 and #4 stand out for me.

    I started with a 4mp Canon A80 point and shoot in 2003. Megapixels seemed a lot more important in those days. I destroyed it a few years later by trying to insert the CF card in dim light, getting it the wrong way and bending the pins.

      Good to look back and reminisce Phil. We have 1000's of photos from way back which we often look back on and it always creates great conversation when my kids visit. Thanks for sharing these images. My first camera was a Minolta 35mm Hi-Matic-E (35mm) and my first digitral was the water resistant Olympus u20 (4MP) then the upgrade to the u1020 (10MP). HERE

          Good shots taken in WA Phil. I've walked the bridges in Boddington and the weir. If that's Tullis bridge, it was destroyed by fire by a group of campers who were their over the Easter long weekend. in April 2009. They set a campfire on the truss on the top of the bridge, apparently went to bed thinking the fire would be ok.....woke up in the night with the bridge on fire. Some more useless info: We used to live in Yokine (suburb in Perth) in a five bedroom house and after my dad died, mum sold the house to a doctor who had a farm in Boddington. He cut the house into four and jinkered it to his farm and rebuilt it. His son who had "issues" destroyed it just a few years ago so his sister couldn't sell it. Again, thanks for the memories.

              G'day all

              As a postscript to the above series of images - perhaps you can also see the enjoyment that I was having with a camera whose lens offered me such beaut possibilities. While we today (15-or so yrs later with better in-camera software) have many ways of reducing noise &/or modifying the JPG image in-camera, these images, for me, bring back some of the excitement I felt following my switch to a digital, superzoom camera

                  Love that moon shot and Uluru. I used to have some Uluru shots from a low fly past in a plane.

                    G'day mate

                    "keep 'em comin" ..... year for a week or two maybe > it all stems from a) lockdown-itis (but that excuse is no longer so valid but the emotional dross is still there) + b) all my PC rebuild issues that you are aware of allowing me to rediscover all these beaut pics from years ago

                    It seems the Panasonics are working for you Phil. Another good set from yesteryear. The sunrise is a beauty! Nothing much has changed in Melbourne, still a lot of hot air coming out of there
