I finally got the chance to test my new camera (Canon EOS D700 in Belgium or EOS Kiss x7i in Japan) on Thursday. It feels really weird, compared to my old one. It’s a lot bigger and heavier, and I just feel awkward carrying it around my neck. It’s annoying that the lens weighs more than the camera itself.
I just went out for a walk along one of those tiny rivers around here. There are a few roads that are designated as “healthy roads” or “health walks” (at least that’s how I interpret 健康の道). They’re usually little roads with lots of greenery. I think it’s a great initiative, since there’s barely any ‘green’ in Tokyo.
I’m still trying to figure everything out. I only got a Japanese manual with the camera, so I couldn’t read or look up things about it. These are just a few photos to try it out.
To be honest, I don’t see that much difference with my previous camera. There’s more depth and the colours are a little better though. But maybe I should first learn how to use it, before judging its capabilities. 😉
