Sony Ericsson Satio - first impressions/mini review

(viewed 3878 times)
Pics are unedited apart from a little resizing. Bear in mind the light out today is dreadful.

Things I Like:

16:9 shooting mode (albeit at "only" 9Mpx). Best of all the aspect ratios.

"Touch capture" - set autofocus point and take shot by touching the screen (used in last shot to get nice dof)

Almost no shutter lag.

No more explicitly selecting macro mode - the AF just works all the way from infinity to up right close.

Things I'm Less Sure About:

Image editor onboard doesn't appear to have a "rotate" feature. [edit - found it now. it was under 'effects' ]

File navigation is rather clunky.

Being a Vodafone-branded firmware, almost none of the pre-installed software actually works. That's less of a handset issue than a software one.

Haven't, really, had much chance to play yet though.

from this phone. hence rapid sequence of catch-up posts just now.

Shiny new Sony Ericsson Satio Billon HyperPixel Telecamawalkamanphone is charging. Didn't even have to extend my contract, which was good. That'll teach Vodafone to say they'll call me back and not bother.

Catering syringe. Used yesterday to inject hot jam into small dough balls before steaming and frying and tossing in sugar.

needs some refinement, but getting there.

glittery insidey semi-squishy polycarb and gel balls are fun. purdy in the sun too.

gardening for five year olds

We have roughly 200 metres of hedge and it all needs cutting and this one short section is the only bit that's not massively (5 metres!) tall. I'm averaging about 3 metres a day at the moment. It's hard work.
