By the time I got it home and set up, it was too dark to take it for a run outside, so I took a few trial shots into the aquarium.
|Red algae, a shred of sea lettuce, and the little blue anemone.|
|Juvenile leafy hornmouth, bearing three very tiny baby blue anemones.|
|One of the miniature orange hermits, on eelgrass.|
So far, so good. It's about the same size as the one it replaces, but with better zoom. In this first test, it gives me good colour; difficult through algae-coated glass. It's fast, so it stops even walking hermits in their tracks. Unfortunately, the photos are noisy, and focussing is iffy on tiny things. But I do like its speed.
I won't be using it for my critters, though. The real test will be tomorrow: skies, stuff, buildings, roadsides, people.
