I picked up a Sony NEX-5R Micro Four Thirds camera system at the Valley Fair Sony Store and I'll be using it to take pictures of my favorite places and things to do, eat and see in the 408 for the next week.
I'll confess I was a little worried about having to learn how to use a new camera in a week's time. It took me months to feel comfortable using the Lumix camera I've been shooting with for the past year. As it turns out, my worries were wasted energy.

I have to say thank you to the staff at the Sony Store Valley Fair for helping me out with a demo. I asked for the basics like how to switch between the auto and manual shooting modes, auto and manual focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. A 10 minute brush up with the camera's manual pretty much brought me up to speed. Testing the dials and buttons I quickly realized just how intuitive and user friendly the NEX-5R is.
In the next week I'll be sharing some of the camera's features and how the project is going including a few sneak peeks of some of the pictures I've taken.
