690 – Nikon D5300

The iPhone 12 has an excellent camera. It has three lenses, each with a zoom factor; 0.5 (wide angle), 1 (normal) and 2.5 (zoom). The phone also has the facility for a 12x digital zoom. Now, there are times when I do use the zoom, but it becomes very useful obvious, very quickly that there is no way that the camera at 12x digital zoom can give images anywhere near as sharp as a proper lens. The header picture is taken with my nikon, using the 18-400mm lens at the top end of the zoom,

I bought the nikon at least 6 years ago because I had always wanted to own one, it didn’t matter that it was pretty much bottom of the range, and an entry level camera – it’s a Nikon. I love it. But then the quality of the phone cameras has come on in leaps and bounds, and the phone slips in to the pocket, and doesn’t need an awkward strap to carry a heavy device (that does the strap a major injustice. It makes it a lot more comfortable to carry).

I took this picture this evening, 12 times zoom, actually, it looks pretty good. I’m going to start carrying the D5300 more so that I get the advantage of both.
