These are more or less random shots from the aquarium (random, in that I pointed the camera at anything that found itself a decent background.) with the camera still set on automatic everything, but without flash.
|Ma Crab, in berry again. Showing off the feathery swimmerets that hold the developing eggs.|
|Close view of the babies. The eggs are transparent, so the eyes are visible.|
These photos worked out much better than the ones I was taking with the Olympus, mostly because the camera is so fast and steady; Ma Crab kept moving about, but I was still able to get several decent shots, even this close.
Nothing needed to be adjusted in this photo but the white balance, to cope with the mixed lighting I was using. And, of course, cropping and resizing for the blog.
|The small, stay-at-home anemones on the far wall.|
|The big, wandering anemone. I think he's grown another half-inch since he moved close to the pump.|
I did clean this one up, just a bit, to reduce a too-bright light shining through the water surface at the upper left. There's still a hint of camera reflection, which I left untouched, and a few floaters. And again, cropping, white balance, and resizing.
I am more impressed with the camera with every session. So far, it's living up to the salesman's spiel.
