Cookie, and about the current sweet spot

Thom Hogan has a blog post about 4k being the current sweet spot. That means that a 12MP camera like the Nikon D3 – 15 years old now – is still good enough for anything.

Well, my el cheapo Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mk2 (which I still like more than the more expensive models, simply because the display only goes up and not sideways) has 16MP. More than enough even if you’d like to crop, which is what I did with the latest portrait of Cookie which is in 5:4 instead of the camera’s usual 4:3:

Cookie, Mörfelden-Walldorf 2022

When I saw him lying there on that carpet, I went and grabbed my old and trusty 50mm/f2 macro lens from the Four Thirds system, and took his photo with it.

He just came back with another mouse to pay for that portrait, but since I didn’t open, he now sits under a tree and enjoys it himself.

Oh, and yesterday Wilma visited again, first time since about half a year or so. And Mitchie thinks that she had a cesarean. But it was so nice to see her again, and she smooched about everything which couldn’t run away 🙂

As always, thanks for reading.
