There's no city like NY, period. There's always something to do and somewhere to go. The South Street Seaport is one of the most relaxing place to spend a sunny spring day. These are fairly old digital photos with the S1 whose color was almost Kodachrome like. Fantastic. I do not recall the Nikkor that I used.

I'm reaching back to the S1 Pro and I am really impressed. It's puny, by today's standard, 3 mega pixel sensor was very capable of rendering accurate and exciting color with great subtleties. Here are some cactus pears in Sicily in august of 2001. I do not recall the Nikkor lens I used.

Although the S1Pro was not my first digicam, it was the first I used professionally as I was making the inevitable switch to digital. I had to convince the customers that digital was as good as film. I was surprised at the acceptance of digital and at the speed of the transition. The SI Pro had a very flimsy body but it's 3 mega pixel sensor was superb. When the exposure was right on, the results were really nice. These are out of the camera JPEGS.

There are some cameras one should never part with. The S2 is was of them. The photos shown are JPEGS straight out of the camera with very little PP. The skin colors were absolutely gorgeous. Only the Nikon D1X came close but only when shooting RAW. Well, at the time I thought that 6 mega pixels were not enough; you know the story. It did have some real shortcomings such has poor focusing, slow react time and a kind of spongy feeling when one pushed the shutter, Yet it was capable, when the exposure was head on, to produce excellent results. These photos were shot at the Caristo Center run by Catholic Charities, my client, and Chinese New Year was being celebrated. I do not recall the Nikkor that I used but most of them are with the 24-85 F2.8-4. A nice lens.
