I was curious last night about the differences between my three cameras. I decided to stage a comparative photo shoot. I commandeered the chicken and set it up comfortably. The cameras were all set on “auto” and only the DSLR fired the flash.
The 7 megapixel ultra compact:
then 6 megapixel (bulkier but still smaller than the DSLR):
and the 12 megapixel:
The Rebel has deeper colours and saturation, but whether it’s because it’s a DSLR or because it’s 12 MP, I’m not sure. Interesting!
I’ve restarted the Ishbel (yet again) and it’s going well. I researched the different methods of doing YOs between knit and purl stitches and found a way that makes them symmetrical. I am probably at the point where I ripped it out the last time. I may complete the stocking stitch section then set it aside and finish a pair of socks before I embark on the lace sections.
Been working the past few afternoons and have some more lined up for today, but it’s all web editing, so it’s fun.
I made the swiss steak recipe last night and it was superb. I used outside round steak and sliced it in half depthwise, pounded it out as the recipe instructs. I did it this time in the oven (I’ve done it stove-top, in the crock pot and once before in the oven) and used 1 cup of red wine in the sauce. I also thickened the sauce before I poured it in the baking dish and I cooked it covered. The sauce was lumpy when I put it in the baking dish and I worried about that, but after 2 hours in a 350° oven, it came out silky smooth and delicious. As much as the big fella moans about cheap cuts of meat, I made a big show of using only my fork to cut a piece off, it was that tender. Yum!
