More Found Fotos!

I recently acquired a very nice Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W7 compact digital camera from 2005. In it was a 1.0GB SanDisk Memory Stick PRO with some images that were taken in late 2013. Here are a few of the most interesting so far. I believe they were taken in West Texas and New Mexico but I don’t know the photographer’s name.

Love the minimalism of this image.

The Sony is a 7.2-megapixel camera with a super sharp (and fast) Carl Zeiss 3x optical zoom lens and CCD sensor.

CCD sensors record colors very accurately and 7 megapixels is plenty sharp.
Love the Pepto Bismol pink!
I believe this was in a small town near El Paso taken on November 2, 2013.
Makes me want a hamburger!
Nice balance between the cool shadow areas and the warm color of the setting sun.

Rediscovering these neat little compact CCD digital cameras from the middle 2000s can be a rewarding experience. Their film-like images are in contrast with the super high-resolution images we’ve grown accustomed to in our modern CMOS and full-frame digital cameras. BTW, the Sony was listed at around $400 when it was released in 2005.
