and her embodiment of happiness

a new sort of clarity

18 July 2014

I got a new camera a week ago - 
Samsung NX300. 
After using a myriad of Canon and Sony camera models, I've yet to try a Samsung camera...
And the verdict? 
I am thoroughly pleased!!
The efficacy of the Samsung's NX300 wifi setting is incredible. The sensor's impressive and all the pictures turned out crisp clear. I'm a bit peeved by the slowness of the autofocus but what it lacks in autofocus, it makes up for it in wifi capabilities.
Took me less than a minute to transfer photos from the camera to the iPhone effectively making the iPhone camera redundant. 

Bought a pancake lens so below are sample shots I've taken over the past few days :)


Monochrome and silver

Purple and white

After running errands a couple of day ago, 
I went for a bit of a walk nearby uni and took some random shots :)

I've been having the happiest days so far of 2014, wake up happy and go to sleep happy. 
Productive days ensues with the best company and (almost) perfect weather!

it's safe to say that I'm ecstatic with my new camera! 
High quality pictures and crisp bokeh in a small, durable build. 
I carry it around with me everywhere these days :) Yay for clearer ootd + food stills.

Internet's finally getting set up tomorrow so finger crossed I'll update regularly from now on...... 
If uni and other miscellaneous activities don't get in the way. Heh.

Till next time!

Sorry if the post seems a bit rushed :(
 Got a new camera a couple of days ago and I've been experimenting around with it. Fingers crossed high quality pictures are coming. YAY. 

Still trying to get bits of things here and there for the apartment so as soon as I'm satisfied with the state of the apartment, I'll post up elaborate pictures!!! 

Hope everyone's having a nice day, where ever they are!

Signing off, 
a very very very cold Sara
