More photo tweets from Hoi An

Here are more photos embedded in tweets of Hoi An, Vietnam.
The other photos are in this Picasa gallery.
I opted to rely more on my Sony NEX-5R for this trip instead of my iPhone 6. The latter takes great photos and more discrete panoramas, but the Sony afforded greater control.
The Sony clacks for every shot in a panorama photo sequence, so it sounds like a machine gun every time it goes off. It also seems to prefer its own charger as alternative USB-powered ones do not fully charge the battery. Thankfully I brought a spare battery along.
The Sony is powerful for its size, but most of its reviews are hurt by its unnecessarily complex operation. Trying to find a mode or setting is like trying to find something in my wife’s handbag.
I also brought a lightning to USB camera adapter for the iPad to transfer and edit photos. While the Sony could create a wireless hotspot to transfer photos, they were not in full resolution and the transfer was a tad slower. The iPad was also a better platform for viewing and editing the images.
