America's Cup (IV)


I'm sure he got a much better photo than mine below but on the other hand, I bet he can't carry his camera in his pocket like I always do with my tiny Cybershot. :-)


New Zealand is still on the first place of the competition
Cascais, 6-14 August

i, too, use a cybershot and though i confess to a certain degree of camera envy when i see powerful pieces of equipment like the one above, i think we do a fine job with our little sonys.

joo said...

Love your America's Cup series!

Birdman said...

I like 'em both. Nice work.

Olivier said...

un beau zoom, meme si c'est pas la taille qui compte ;))

JM said...

@Olivier: :-)))

Halcyon said...

Beautiful shots! I always thought you had a DSLR. I'm even more amazed if you get all these wonderful photos with a point and shoot. :)

Sharon said...

Your shot is perfect, I love it. But, I bet I'd like the fellow's camera too!

Fantastic shots JM I've always thought it's the person taking the shot not the equipment that makes a great image. When I was taking the pics of the Avon Descent last weekend, there were guys there with outrageously huge lens's, would have liked to see how different to mine theirs were..probably lots better hahaha!!

Tanya said...

and he probably doesn't have a cool blog like yours to share his pics on! you do pretty amazing stuff with your own camera jm!

Virginia said...

Don't you dare tell me you get these fabulous photographs with a point and shoot JB!!!!
Great shot of the ship. The water is so gorgeous.

I have a cybershot too and I love it! These are wonderful pictures JM.

This has been such a terrific series, JM! I've really enjoyed it! Love the boats and the water! I just have a little pocket size Canon, but that's probably all that I'm capable of using anyway. I'm not often disappointed with my shots and that's good enough -- and they are indeed a lot easier to carry everywhere!!! Hope your week is going well!

Oh that line...

ladyfi said...

What a great shot that last one is.

RedPat said...

Excellent shots and great composition - proves that a good eye will beat out fancy equipment any day!

VP said...

Dark blue, dark sails... I agree about the camera, mine is a little bulkier but still can rest in a jacket pocket!

Jacob said...

I used a Sony Cybershot in France with excellent effect...just as you do. I'm not sure at all he got any better photos than you did...there's more to get "right" on a DSLR than a p&s! :-)

Re the "Walmartians": I've seen some of those forwards on the Internet...some very strange-looking people shop at Walmart!

Al said...

I wouldn't bet that he got a better shot, as most people don't have a clue how to frame a photo, no matter how expensive their camera. You do!

Andrew said...

Haha JM It's not how much the camera costs it's what you do with it... and you know what I think of your wonderful images..

Dina said...

Forget the pocket. The guy's lens is longer than his short pants even.

Love those black sails.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I agree with Andrew and all those who said that these are spectacular... regardless the camera. I would love to have seen this!

Bises,

London Caller said...

Ha! You're so right!
It's small but handy!
Too big can be very clumsy.
I totally understand you point. ;)

Jack said...

If the pictures on your blog have all been taken with a small compact camera, I am even more impressed. I began with a compact camera and these days I usually use a DSLR. They both have a place. But I don't have a lens as big as his.

T. Becque said...

Oh that looks like wonderful fun! And you're right, there's something to be said about small cameras, I missed that while in Europe!

Kate said...

I lust for the kind of camera and lens that photographer is using. Your photos, however, are wonderful with your own Cybershot camera!!

Randy said...

Now I have lens envy! Love the second shot.

Carolina Tavares said...

Ora... ora, também tenho uma Cybershot, e a minha é vermelha :)

É bom saber notícias do mundo desta forma, por meio de fotos que não são oficiais, mas que são mais especiais pelo modo como são partilhadas. Valeu!

Art said...

Absolutely fascinating pictures!

jennyfreckles said...

He might have got a closer shot - but I doubt a better one. As others have said, you milk pure gold from your pocket camera.

Small City Scenes said...

Perfect shot with a Cybershot---so there. MB

Francisca said...

The expression that comes to mind is: It ain't the meat, it's the motion. You've got the motion down pat, JM. Different subject, same point. For some years I carried both a small PNS and a DSLR. I find I generally get better clarity from the DSLR, but I still use only one lens... I'm a lazy photographer. Enjoyed your series on America's Cup.
