Nikon P7000 for interior "hotel room" shots

by thailand_villa / November 10, 2010 5:06 PM PST

Based in Thailand, we use our camera primarily for landscape, portrait and Thai food photography. We are about to purchase a new digital camera that we wish to be relatively small, able to capture good pictures for our holiday villa, and especially to be able to photograph indoor / room shots at Gecko Villa.

The Nikon P7000 seems to fit the bill and is available here, but the wide angle accessory is yet to be imported, but should be here in a couple of months.

We would be very pleased to receive feedback from anyone who has used the Nikon P7000 with the camera's add-on wide angle - specifically as to whether it can successfully capture a "hotel room" type shot without excessive distortion, and without the need for professional lighting equipment. The type of photos we take is varied (room shots, landscapes etc) and we wish to improve on the photos we currently have at http://www.geckovilla.com/GeckoGallery/gallery1.html - taken with an inexpensive 3MB Sony.
Thanks!

The WC-E75A Wide-Angle Converter for Nikon Coolpix P7000 Digital Camera is rated as .76

The P7000 lens is 28mm focal length when not zoomed.
So if you use that converter lens you will get approximately 21mm focal length.
(28 x .76 = 21.28mm)

That is just about as far as you can go without getting into distortion.

I looked at your photos and have a suggestion.

Photos number 4,5,6,8,13,16,24 show blown highlights.
Bright areas that have diminished or no detail.
It could be helpful if you looked into HDR Photography (High Dynamic Range).
You can eliminate the blown out (over exposed) areas of photographs.
If you are not familiar with HDR read this:

or just do a Google search for HDR Photography

Nice place for a visit

I saw your pictures and agreed with snapshot. Most highlight details were gone regard the dynamic range. Most compact digital camera has some limits. I personally lived here in Bangkok, Thailand. Sincerely, allow me to visit and shoot some pictures for you. Feel free to visit my website : http://yuth1127.multiply.com .

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
