This is Naomi, my new little girl. She’s not so new really, being 6 weeks old now, and nor is she the real purpose of my post. This is after all a photography blog. So Let me introduce my other new baby…
This is a Nikon J2 which I bought around the same time as Naomi was born. I haven’t bought it for professional use, so don’t expect to see it at your wedding, college ball or the like (if that’s why you are looking at my blog). I got this camera to have a camera that is small enough to take anywhere with me, like when I’m cycling around Oxford. While cycling, I often see things that I’d like to take a photo of, but until now was unlikely to have my camera on me, as the professional DSLRs are a bit bulky, and expensive, to have in my paniers. However, I didn’t want to get a “point and shoot” as I know that I would get frustrated with the lack of flexibility that generally comes with them. This new class of “compact system cameras” seemed a pretty good fit to my whim.
So far I think it’s been well worthwhile:
Clouds over Nuffield College
Oxford flooding 2012
Wildlife spotted when out on my bike
