Let's test the functionality of this new photo posting.

This is one of the first pictures I took with the Fuji F10. What do you think?

My old Konica Minolta Dimage A2 still produces some razor sharp results, with a bit of post production sharpening. I wish more camera manufacturers would put wide angle lenses on their products. It's my firm belief that all non-slr cameras should have a wide angle no narrower than 28mm equiv. Wider apertures throughout the lens range is another thing I'd really like to see. Posted by Hello

Here's a picture from my new camera, a Fuji F10. It's the first pocket digital released with ISO settings from 80 to 1600 (that I know of, and yes, I'm aware Ricoh, Casio, and Olympus released their own takes on that feature, but I'm pretty sure they came afterwards) at full resolution. Barrel distortion is almost non-existent with this new lens (.6 at full wide angle, compared to 1.2 for most pocket point and shooters) and I've been very pleased with the results in 3:2 aspect ratio mode so far. This picture was taken at ISO 80, 1/240s, f/5.0, fully zoomed at 113mm equiv. The only post production editing is some sharpening in Picasa2. Posted by Hello

Hey, Macarena! No, I wasn't doing it, either, although my wife was, and no, you can't see pictures of her. Unless you pay me enough to cover the divorce that would inevitably ensue, and then set me up for life with a nice stipend. Posted by Hello

The tour guide claimed many times, with great conviction, that the crime rate in Belize is low. Horsepuckey. If you have to bar the windows of a funeral parlor in the nice section of town, then your crime rate can only be said to be "low" if you're speaking very subjectively. Most of the buildings in Belize have the windows and doors barred, unless they're owned by someone who's rich. Then they have the windows and doors barred AND they're located in a compound topped with razor wire. Posted by Hello

Lizard. Belize is overrun with these things, although I saw only the one. Posted by Hello
