I use the viewfinder about 99% of the time to take my shots and I got 500 shots my last charge. I use the LCD for playback and to adjust settings, but thats about it.

I need to get your camera to shoot better and go at a better time with a full battery and do a before and after!

And yes laurel I am finding I like the eyefinder too, the camera is a lot more stable even at max focal length and I get less blurred shots.

The in car shots are terrible though but nothing you can do, the car was kinda in motion.

One more suggestion, when you are taking shots of the ocean, you should get the horizon parallel. I rotate then crop to fix mine.

Hmm good idea. I was rushed so will definitely have to do a sequel!.. The Empire State Building shots created a pickle. If I lined up the water horizon, the building was tilted so I couldn't do anything with that.

Jake-

Those first few photos show a blue cast to them, like you had the WB set wrong. The rest looked very good.

Just curious Sarah, could it be windshield distorting the colors since they were shot from inside a car?

Anything you shoot through glass you will have distortion. And depending on the type of glass it can cause you more distortion.

Jake-

That is probably the issue. A tinted windshield acts just like a filter on your camera.

Photographing and driving is illegal.
