farewell, D-535

Above to left is my old Olympus D-535. On right is my new Olympus SP-320, purchased today.

Before showing some new photos with the SP-320, you'll notice that the D-535's battery door isn't shut properly. This is because I dropped it. I mentioned this here before but now you can actually see what I'm talking about. I literally had to tape the door shut to keep it from popping open. It was very annoying. Yes, it way my fault it happened in the first place, but still annoying.

As a fond farewell to the D, here's one of the last photos I took with it.

It's nothing spectacular, but the '535 and I have been thru a lot, including but not limited to every state on the east coast and some of the Midwest. Through it all it's always worked, so I really can't complain. The cam did the job it was supposed to do.

Now on to the good stuff.

What you should immediately notice if you've been visiting my site for any amount of time is that these are close-up shots; something the D just couldn't do very well. The SP-320 on the other hand does them very easily. Focus is in the exact spot I want and the colors are very true.

Although I haven't even scratched the surface of what this cam can do, thus far I find that the menus are easy to navigate, the startup and shutdown time is fast (very nice) and the screen is readable in sunlight. I haven't tried the manual focus yet or raw mode but will be trying those out shortly.

Should be fun. 🙂
