Working from home has its advantages. This morning I was at my desk at the usual time ( about 6.30am ) and as the sun rose the scene from my study window came alive with colour. So I just had to capture the scene as best I can. The camera of course can never reproduce the impact of the original as seen with the naked eye. But stunning none the less.
I arrived back home last Friday to find that my camera had arrived back from Fuji. I was so pleased that it had been returned. I opened the box to find inside another box – the distribution packaging for a more modern model. I anticipated that Fuji would have put may repaired camera into the nearest equivalent package to give it adequate protection whilst in transit. On opening the inner package I could see that they had supplied a CD with the camera software and a set of connecting cables. Then I took the camera out of the box to discover that a brand new replacement model had been supplied. So I am now the proud owner of a FinePix S9500. I am really please to be back in action again – but its a bit like learning a new language as the camera has a number of functions that my old camera did not have!
So I am now looking forward to many happy hours getting to know the new camera! Here is an example photo which I too on Saturday – I am pleased with initial results but I do think that I need to obtain a skylight filter which I will do at the earliest opportunity.
This photo of a bird taking advantage of our garden water feature to have a refreshing bath! I had the sense that he was looking right at me – not camera shy at all!
I do want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the excellent service I feel that I have received from FujiFilm on this occasion. I really feel that the repair service has been excellent and I now have a brand new camera with an accompanying 1 year warranty.
Just spent the last half hour watching the Eclipse of the Moon. Unfortunately the ambient light in Kemnay prevented me from getting a photo of it in full eclipse – but this one show it in pretty near eclipse.!
