SONY CYBERSHOT DSC-F505V
PAGE 1

        The photos on this page were all shot using the Sony Cybershot Digital camera, which we purchased at the beginning of March 2001. We were rather amazed at the number of Diamond and other shaped Orbs that were suddenly flooding our photos, as if another dimension had just opened up. If we had not also been getting round Orbs too we might have thought it was how the camera was taking the picture and processing it. (See BEAN SOUP 4 for our observations on Cybershot cameras, Diamonds and dust.)

        Most of the photos were shot on one of the larger settings of the camera - 1856  x 1392 - and were way too large to get on the Internet without much thumb twiddling while you were waiting for them to download. So we cropped the photo in the places we thought were the most interesting points and reduced each one to a width of 600 pixels. (The irregularity in the thumbnail width is because they were all resampled at 75 pixel height.) Any blowups of particular Orbs are enclosed in a gray lined box in the bottom corner of the photo.

        (Note: All of these aren't actually Diamonds, with four pointed corners. We started to call them Shields - the ones with the rounded tops. Then along came the ones with the rounded sides - being round on either left or right side. We had no name for them. We discovered later that a particular shape of Orb was already being called a Shield. It was rounded at the top with a small triangular wing on both sides. Since at the present moment we can think of no better name for these shapes that we have in the photos below and above, we will simply refer to them as Diamonds right now.)
