Beautiful Moon
With the summer months upon us, few things are more enticing than the peacefulness of lying on the fresh grass, looking up, contemplating the night sky. One of the elements that I often marvel at is our closest neighbor; the moon, which even to the naked eye, is striking. Perhaps you’re tempted to grab a pair of binoculars or a telescope, to explore the moon’s beauty in closer detail, or discover other distant elements. Suddenly, you have a new found hobby as an amateur astronomer and now; here you are, shopping for a digital camera to add to your equipment check list.

Color Wonders
The camera in your system is the gateway to the color wonders of the world. A camera delivering accurate color is no small feat, much less doing so in a reliable and repeatable manner. Cameras from various manufacturers often rely on comparable sensors but this is where the similarities end. Unless purposely designed, cameras will deliver varying color quality even when using the same image sensors.
