Old School!

I’m goin’ old school!  For some reason, I’ve been thinking about my old Sony F717.  In fact I’ve written about it a couple of times.  Since then things have been happening.

One of the “things” was getting my old F717 back (thanks Andy)!  Unfortunately it no longer works.  That’s ok, it’s on my shelf in my camera collection!  Having the F717 back got me to thinking about how it would stack up to the newer, modern cameras I use now.

It was pretty easy to find used F717’s online, the hard part was finding one in decent condition.  I actually decided to go a little further back in time and found the F717’s predecessor, the F707.  This was also highly regarding digicam with some impressive specs (I’ll share those in a future post).  Suffice it to say, I purchased the F707 and will be taking it on vacation for some side by side comparison shooting with my Sony NEX3, Canon 60D, and Canon 40D.

That’s it for now, I’m headed for the Eastern Sierra and all of the photo ops available!  So until my next post, Happy Shooting!
