SZ-30MR - How Much Moon?
May 3, 2012

How much moon can you get out of a pocket P&S, such as the SZ-30MR?

The answer is 'Never enough, but more than you could get seven years ago'.

Here is my effort from last night - Sandra was talking to her daughter on Skype on my laptop, so I needed something else to do -

Compare this to a similar shot done on the C-750UZ seven years ago -

Later, when the moon was at the highest elevation and travelling horizontally, I did this HD video -

In 'P' mode I set up spot metering, spot focussing and digital zoom, and the video side accepted these settings as well. But I had to edit down to the middle minute where the spot metering kicked in properly.

Off Topic again - During the Skype session, Sandra went away for ten minutes to watch an art item on TV, so that I could show her daughter the clothes she had left here in the suit case we are storing for her. I could not find everything Cassandra was looking for. But she did a video at the time telling me what she was leaving behind and where. I think I know where that video is, I have seen it quite recently.
