[XF1 CMOS and F70EXR CCD] The times, they are a-changing

Here are four photographs, all taken from the same location, over a period of 15 days that happened to overlap the official change of season. Coincidentally, this set presents an opportunity to compare the outputs from the Super-CCD 1/2" sensor of the F70EXR and the 2/3" CMOS sensor of the XF1.

At the tail end of summer, three days before the autumnal equinox, September 19, Thursday:

Mt. Hood (Oregon) from Laurence Lake Road near its terminus at Clear Creek Road. XF1 M size

A small storm passed through the region over the next few days, and the season officially changed to autumn. Here is the same scene on September 26, Thursday, four days after the autumnal equinox:

Mt. Hood with its first light dusting of snow of the new season. XF1 M size

A very major storm came through the Pacific Northwest over the weekend of September 27 to 29, and it dumped quite a bit of snow on the upper elevations of the taller peaks of the High Cascades, including Mt. Hood. Here, eight days after the previous photo, and 15 days after the first photo, on October 4, Friday:

Mt. Hood after a substantial autumn (not winter) storm left its mark on the upper slopes. F70EXR M size

The lens of the F70EXR, of course, has a much longer reach (to 270 mm equivalent) than the lens of the XF1 (100 mm equivalent), and having the F70EXR with me on the third visit allowed me to finish this set with an F70EXR photo of just the top of the mountain:
