The camera in question is an Olympus Camedia C-3000Z. This has a 3x optical zoom roughly equivalent to a 93mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera. A further 2.5x digital zoom (7.5x total) yields the equivalent of a 233mm lens.
For these snaps, the camera was hand-held (leaning on the roof a a car), with fully manual focus, aperture stop, shutter speed and sensitivity. The settings for each short are recorded below.
I have appended a couple of field shots to show just how tiny the images
are (even at full zoom), and an "actual pixels" version of the 233mm shot.
All of the above images (except p1090029)
are show at actual pixel resolution.
p1090028 field at "93mm" (3x optical zoom)
p1090029 field at "233mm" (7.5x digital zoom)
p1090029 detail (actual pixels)
