Almost four years since I got it, the Sony NEX-5N remains a nice camera. The size and overall image quality still hold up, even if it's old enough now that I'd appreciate what an upgrade brings. This is one of my favourite shots from the 5N from last week.

Very delayed post: I'm drawn to this DHL building in New York. It sticks out in a sea of bland colours. #newyorkcity #nyc #iphone6

It was a beautiful fall afternoon. Helped make up for a lot of ugliness this week. #Ottawa #fall #iPhone6

Yep, the iPhone 6 can take very good car photos.  I've used auto HDR on other phones before, as you might imagine, but it's good to see on an iPhone in situations like these.  Helps maintain the right exposure both on a black car and a bright blue sky. #iphone6   #photography   #ottawa   #cars   #porsche

I'm about to move my iPhone 5 along, but it's still good to know that it still takes very nice photos.  Great colours and reliable focus.  Suggests to me that this may trump the GS5/G3/and so on, even with a lower resolution. #iphone   #iphone5   #ottawa

Sometimes, it's subtler custom cars that deserve the attention.  This chop has some great paint-on accents that are just noticeable and give it a distinct flair, but don't distract from the lines on the car. #cars #ottawa

For those who haven't been, Engadget Expand is like a tech theme park. You get to see a lot of gear that's simply fun to play with and watch. See: LEIF's snowboard-like electric skateboard. Come Saturday if you can! #expandny #technology

So far, my experience with the iPhone 6's camera has been almost uniformly positive.  Great colour that's intense at times, fast and reliable focus, good in most lighting conditions.  In my experience, it beats the stuffing out of the Galaxy S5 (prone to blurring, not so hot in low light) and G3 (not as vivid + poorer in low light).  Proof that megapixels aren't everything.   #iphone6   #photography

Good quality shot, almost up there with my ixus compact.

Spotted some surprisingly lush flowers while traipsing about town. Also: the LG G3 is surprisingly sensitive to motion for something with OIS, at least on an overcast day. Had to keep unusually still! #lg  #g3 #flower #ottawa

The G3 can take some great photos, but it seems to over-process. It's hard to get a close-up crop without losing a lot of detail. Still good enough most of the time, but I'd actually prefer the G2's camera more often than not. #lg #g3

We actually have a camera face-off going up between the G3 and S5. I was surprised by the results...
