Camera: Ricoh CX4 Photo Location: Wakefield ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F3.5 
Posted By: snappychappy, 10-12-2011, 11:59 PM

Well we have had 5 days of rain and drizzle here in Yorkshire. So thought I would take out the new P&S compact, Ricoh CX4. Now bought this for it's compactness, reasonable spec's and to be able to slip it into a pocket when traveling. Only used it a couple of times but seems OK there are little quirks to get used to, shutter lag ect. but am fairly pleased with the results. Anyway the rain was quite heavy and I was walking past these shop windows and it made me think of the contrast between the summer and now.

Sent this shot to Calendar, the regional news program and they showed it on the evening weather forecast. It is the second image of mine they have used on the show.

Indeed colors look very vivid a nice walk around unti for sure ! It' often said the best camera you can get is the one you have with you and you'll do well with that one.
