My Nikon D800e has been back at the Mother Ship for a tune-up. In desperation I borrowed my wife’s point-and-shoot, with no viewfinder, no aperture mode, but I did have manual flash as an option. I felt like a heroin user on methadone.
Still, persistence paid, as these shots from the Hamilton OH Ice Festival suggest. You CAN get decent shots with a cheap camera but you sure to have to work for them.
