The Ugly Guy Goes Panoramic

This week (Tuesday) I got a Sony HX5V (catchy name). It's only a pocket camera but it has some neat features:

  1. It doesn't break when I point it at myself, even if I press the shutter release.

  2. Built in HD video. Haven't tried this yet.

  3. ISO up to 3200. (!)

  4. 25mm - 250mm lens (35mm-equivalent).

  5. Image stabilization.

  6. Built in sweep panorama. Happens in about two seconds. (Zowie!)

Today I went for a walk in the rain with it.

Couldn't help trying it out on my face, such as it is. Camera still works.

Not bad at all.
