soft greens as seen by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W7

From 2005, Sony’s 7-megapixel gem is a fun CCD throwback camera producing film-like images. Here are a few recent shots.

New bald cypress needles – f2.8 1/400 ISO 100
Young redbud leaves – f2.8 1/320 ISO 100
New growth river maple leaf – f5.6 1/250 ISO 100

The 7.2-megapixel CCD sensor is more than capable of capturing beautiful nature shots.

The not-so-secret reason for great images is a sharp (and fast) Carl Zeiss lens. These early Sony cameras often featured better-than-expected lenses in their compact digital cameras.
