End of the honeymoon…

night shotWell, I am writing out of a realized shortcoming. A dream now shattered and brought to reality. Okay, so I have a tendency towards melodrama and it is not the monumental deconstruction of a heart-felt hope as I have implied but this realization did blow never the less. As I have posted, I recently purchased a new digital camera; a canon S3 IS. Before, I owned a Kodak DX7630 – a very nice camera in its own right. Last night (Friday) as heading to a friends for drinks and a few games of pool I snapped a couple of pictures. Take note: it is night. The night pictures that I took without a tripod, taken at random were remarkably clear; much more so than any I have taken in the same fashion with the DX. The crushing of the dream came in when I tried to plan out the shot a little more. With the DX there was a shutter speed limit of 64 seconds. This long “exposure” allowed for nearly HDR quality images when combined with a high aperture setting. The canon has a longest speed of 15 seconds. I am sure that without much explanation you can understand what this means – More washed out colors and artifacts 🙁 I am sure that I will learn to cope but it blows when you come to the relization that you have lost something that you loved and didn’t even know it until it was gone…
