Taken in March, 2012 with a Panasonic Lumix ZS-7. This architectural feature is fairly high up on a building in Manhattan. For all its failings (smeary images, green cast, over-aggressive noise control – many of them fairly typical of small sensor compact cameras) the ZS-7 has one great advantage: its 25-300mm zoom range. Although it was often fairly hard to hold it steady at the 300mm end and the image on the screen was usually quite jerky, the long zoom range often came in handy. I was just about to say that this was true in the case of this picture when I thought to check only to discover that it was taken at only 63mm (35mm equivalent). I guess it wasn’t as high up as I thought.
