Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H20 Review

Last week, what felt like two years ago, I shared with you all the great investment that Hubs and I made in the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20. Last weekend brought our very First Wedding Anniversary... and what better way to celebrate than to visit a commonly feared city on it's fourth anniversary of the most devastating hurricane to hit the area? It's a show and tell, come along!

WE LOVED NOLA! If you haven't had any interest in visiting New Orleans since the devastation, reconsider. The French Quarter is booming with business (shops waiting to be emptied, food waiting to be eaten and vendors waiting to serve you). There were many more tourists than I had anticipated and I was pleasantly surprised to see some pretty animated celebrations along the Bourbon Street corridor.

But I digress. This is about the camera quality, right? Well fasten your seatbelts for a brief portfolio.

This is Boudin, foreign to Texans. Pronounced BOO-DAN. In these here parts, we call that Sausage. They don't. And it's got a kick. Pictured next to 'Cracklins' from Don's Meats in Lafayette, en route to NOLA. Pretty dern tasty, but eating it will induce laughter. My husband calls 'Boudin' French for "not gay looking at all..."

First night was our venture to Pat O's (O'Briens, for all you kiddies that don't know, a staple of New Orleans tourism). A fellow Rainer advised that one Hurricane was all one would need. Somehow we managed to purchase 6 glasses by the end of the night and by the time they were in boxes, they were empty. Hmmm. How did that happen?

And check out this little nifty trick with the camera (not that new-fangled computer science)...

Of course, the food was top priority.

That, and spending time with that guy that came along for the ride... "husband," I think they call him?

Jefferson Square and Cathedral, for the Catholics in the house!

Hubs even caught the wee hair-things growing from the flora.



And with quality like this, you can just taste the 2 lbs of wasted sugar poured on the beignets from Cafe Du Monde.

The camera is so good, it even caught this 'Kodak' Moment... nothing like a scratch for good luck.


Like Disneyland, really, and we've vowed to return. With the smash of Hurricane damage (the drink; not that "K" word we won't mention), we didn't do much besides eat and sleep. Too much to see and do for just a weekend getaway, but a definite recommendation for you if you're, oh, 8 hours driving distance or so.


So, highly suggested? NOLA and the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H20. Check 'em out!

I just bought a Sony Cyber shot, too. Lovin' it! Can't wait to try out the video part of it. The wide angle is terrific, too.

Great pictures, thanks for sharing.  The best boudin in Texas can be found at Nicks grocery store in Port Arthur. They sell about 600 pounds per day.

Ashley, I'm so glad you had a great time here in the Crescent City. We are in the middle of one of the busiest weekends of the year for the French Quarter, and we're seeing record-breaking crowds. I hope your pics put an end to the media insinuations and rumors that we are still heavily damaged and not ready for tourists to return. Come back to Nola anytime!

I'm jealous of your camera.  And your trip too!  I'm from Pensacola, FL, so Nola was stomping grounds whenever we could get away.  And glad to hear it is coming back from the hurricane disaster.
