Sri Lanka
« on: September 05, 2012, 09:17:53 PM »

Just got back from a two week cycling tour of Sri Lanka and it was by far the best trip I've ever done. Was glad that the Sony RX100 had just been released in time and was able to do away with lugging around a DSLR. This camera performed brilliantly after more than 2000 stills and plenty of video. Here is a small selection from the trip.

Regards,

Derryck.

I like #1104 and #1743.

P.S. I think #1104 would make Andreas Gursky's head explode  ;D

Derryck ,
Nice work and thanks for sharing. Did you miss your DSLR (speaking of the IQ)?

No I didn't miss my DSLR which is unlike any previous experience I've had with compact cameras. If you are careful with regards to getting the focus right (I wish I had set it to AF spot rather than the multi AF option) and exposure then this camera's image quality is very good.

I think I managed to get a lot more images that I wouldn't have if I had been carrying a DSLR. Especially since I was riding a bike everyday. For future rides I'd consider having some kind of pouch mounted to the handlebars for easier access to the camera.

Thanks for the feedback. Riding a bike and lugging a DSLR at the same is a no-no for me. The handlebar pouch would be handyÖ I believe that Ortlieb has a line of small and medium sized handlebar bags or pouches.

^^I use one of their pouches on the front of my bike as well as a larger sized, frame mounted pouch on the back. The front one is nearly waterproof and the back has water proof compartments. I typically carry the camera on the front and strap the tripod to the back. REI sells the bike pouches and offers a life-time replacement warranty as well.

Using these pouches, Iíve carted my cameras about 5 thousand miles overall, over about 75% gravel roads. Both the cameras and the pouches have held up extremely well. Can't say enough good things about the durability of their products.

It's good documentary, Derry. With a series like this you really need a theme so you can use the pictures to illustrate the theme and write an article for a magazine. #5 makes it as street photography, and #9 comes close, but the rest are general illustrations that need a theme to hang together.
