Three Cameras

Photos on this blog come from many sources and many cameras; Southern Man tries to give photo credits when due. But most of the pics are from a four-year-old Sanyo VPC-1700T 7.0 megapixel camera. It's been a pretty good camera, enough so that when the first one broke Southern Man picked up a duplicate on Ebay. As he has said, he tends to buy and hold for too long. But he already had the software installed and the data cable and the battery charger... When that camera wasn't handy, a few were taken with the HTC Wing phone camera. An example is here and you can see why it's not the preferred camera.

But now there's a new kid in town - the camera on the Samsung Gravity Smart. So just to see which is the better camera here are a few top-and-bottom comparisons with the new cell phone camera on top and the old Sanyo camera on bottom.

The Barn loft, full of junk.

It's kind of a tough call. The Sanyo takes better but smaller (1600 x 1200) pictures, but the camera phone will be fine. Further testing in both natural light and well-lit rooms is necessary, as a sunset shot and a dark barn loft probably are suboptimal environments for both. Of course what Southern Man would like to do is retire the Sanyo and spend a few hundred bucks on a new digital camera, but that won't happen 'till Christmas at the earliest.
