Alvin’s Digital Follies – “Highlights” From Last Week…

Blown out sky...

Where’s the sky?  Everything else seems to be exposed properly…

Last week I was testing out a really old digital camera……a Fujifilm FinePix 2800Z which, I believe, I picked up in 2003. IT IS A 2 MP BEAST WITH A MONSTROUS 6X ZOOM LENS!!!

A somewhat terrible pic to show off the 6x optical zoom lens

A somewhat terrible pic to show off the 6x optical zoom lens.  At least it still zooms.

The camera was passed on to my son after I had picked up my first DSLR, a Pentax K100D.  Since then, we continued to grab more cameras, and the Fuji 2800Z eventually found itself inside a box.

Ughhh!!!  Terrible Highlights!

You have probably seen this in many of my posts.  I don’t know what to say…ummm…The sky is blue?  The leaves on the trees are green?  😄

I’ve come to the conclusion that there is something is wrong with the sensor, because I recall this camera having a LOT more dynamic range than what you are seeing in this post.  I’ll need to dig up some photos if I can find my archive CD’s (CD’s? how long ago was that?!)  Anyways, I also know I have 2 copies of this cameras as well.  I’ll have to dig around my house and find the other copy to see if it is in better shape than the one I was shooting with for this post.  Stay tuned…

Wow.  I really didn't know that the sensor had degraded this much...
