Christmas Evening Dinner

Christmas Evening Dinner

Christmas Evening Dinner
with the traditional roasted duck (andesteg)
and pork roast (flęskesteg) with some of my closest family

I wanted to test the "Smart Photo Selector Mode"
where V1 buffers 20 full size pictures to the buffer in a split second
both before and after the shutter button is fully pressed, and selects
the 5 best pictures with one recommended as the best based on some clever
algorithms considering smiles, open eyes, composition and in-focus.
It seemed to work fine in this particular situation with a lot of happy smiles in one photo

In this situation, photographing a group of people from the table end,
the relative large DOF of the N1 cameras is a huge benefit. With larger sensor
cameras you would have to use a smaller aperture actually negating the ISO benefit
they have over the N1 cameras.
