Greenwich 2001 and 2017

In 2001 I hired a Nikon D1 to try Digital. On the way home I stopped of in Greenwich park and took a picture of the clock by the observatory.

Fast forward to 2017 and I was in Greenwich park with just my iPhone and took a picture of the same clock.

Now I did not try and recreate the same angle etc from 2001 and it was just a quick photograph between tourists. 



A full resolution shot of the clock from both files



Now I am not sure how much Blogger will degrade the images.

All images are as taken with no resizing. 

Also the costs The D1 was around £3500 and the 160MB memory card was £415

The iPhone 8 £699

Greenwich on an iPhone

We had a day in Greenwich, with tickets to do the tour upclose to the ceiling in the painted hall. When we arrived I found my camera battery was dead so it would have to be the iPhone.

Anyway we arrived slightly early for our tour so had time to look around the chapel.

Then it was on to the Painted Hall

After getting hat, hi vis jacket, and audio headphones we met our guide. An initial history of the room and explanation of the wall murals it was up the stairs to just under the ceiling.

It was not easy to see the images on the ceiling, but with the help of a hand mirror it was easier. I then tried using the camera on the screen side of the phone and it was even better than the mirror.

I was really amazed by the clarity of the images even from the secondary camera. 

After the tour we had a walk around the rest of the buildings
