Pretty Kitty

Even though I don't have an awesome DSLR yet I still manage to take some awesome pictures with just my Blackberry!

This seemed to be the more popular one (I had one that was a bit closer to her face). I just changed it to black and white for a different mood to change it up. I liked this so much I made if the home screen and wallpaper of my iPad. I caught myself a few times at work flipping on my iPad and just looking at her and it just makes me want to run home and hug her!

It seems after a surge of posting Mynx pictures on my Facebook I come to work and one of the networking guys spams my messenger with cat memes! Some are pretty funny, like the one of the cat in a shark sweater and sitting on a roomba while it tours a room with a little duckling following in its wake! There was another that was a few seconds long of a kitten call center. All these kittens are sitting at 'desks' and they have headsets on and the ones front and center look up at you! Oh I nearly died when I saw that one!

I also seemed to get teased at work because we've been experiencing a bit of trouble with one of our mail servers. When it kept crapping out the same networking guy who sends me the memes blamed me because he was distracted by all the cat pictures! Usually when we experience a brief outage he jokes that he's modified the logs to incriminate me and that security is on their way to escort me off campus! My response is usually "but I just got here! Sad". Good times at work, eh?

Mynx looks good in black & white.

@Dean: see L is posting on Facebook instead of here. No wonder our count is down!

That this was taken with a Blackberry is utterly incredible. It's a great photo in general, and that it was captured with such sharpness on such a small sensor is incredible!

My phone is weird. The pictures usually turn out well when the lighting is good but I can't say it was great when I took this picture. Close ups seem to turn out better than, say, a landscape picture. It's hit or miss sometimes! It irks me when my phone could take pictures just as well as an expensive DSLR and lens. Ah!

Edit: the rear camera is supposed to be 8mp. That's not bad!

Yeah, camera performance can be a weird thing...
8MPx is probably about as high as you'd really want to go with a sensor that small. The drive to pack more pixels onto phone camera sensors and compacts boggles me; they're definitely at the point where they're cramming so many pixels on that the image quality is getting worse Razz Too many MPx and your image gets more errors/noise and loses sharpness.

The nice thing (a nice thing?) about a DSLR is that the sensor is much larger and more efficient handling light; 8MPx on a DSLR should produce a sharper image than 8MPx in a compact or phone, as the light is spread over larger, more responsive pixels.

Thanks for the heads up Stand. That means I'll now have to go and dig up my FB ID somewhere. Wonder where it is? Think
