YOU WOULD THINK…
That anyone who can run a computer would know how
to use a digital camera. They are not as complicated as
all the things that go with a computer ,and all the problems
that can go wrong. I am having a time trying to NOT push
the button all the way down like my old camera, I had for
probably 15 years!! This new way of doing things does take
some getting used to. I agree… I like the idea of deleting the
picture if I don’t like it and starting over. I like the idea of
seeing the picture immediately. I owned several polaroid
cameras back in the day..I used to get so excited that we could
see what we took so fast. I like the idea that I dont realllly
have to take the pictures in to be developed right away because
there are so many on a card. To take a video with such a small
camera blows me away. It just doesn’t seem possible..but it
is! Picture and sound from this small thing…who would have thought
it???? Progress is amazing. I know there are smaller cameras than
this one and that too amazes me.
I am still getting used to the smallness of the camera.It fits
in the palm of my hand or in my pocket. AMAZING!! Mine
was large and heavy and could take it if it was dropped, and
did so many many times. It was dropped off the top of a
horse I was sitting on, to the cement driveway and still worked.
It was waterproof, and boy was I glad..so many times I really
was taking pictures in conditions I should not have been.This one works
better with warm batteries..warm is what the book said..keep the
extra batteries warm when in cold weather. HUH..well thank GOD I
have extra pockets in my coat. So many things you have to be
careful of. It blows my mind.
My old camera had a 10X zoom, this one has 3. I am still learning
this digital stuff and so I think it is
good that I start slow and work the kinks out of my shock at having
a camera at all. It has been a long time since I was able to let loose
and shoot to my hearts content.
When the snow comes, and IT IS coming….I will attempt to place
my first picture on here from my very own camera. BOY what a
banner day that will be.IS IT enough though to make me go LIVE
WRITER…..uh…. we will see. LOL
Now I ask you ..why don’t they have some kind of a case for the
camera when they sell you one includedi n the box? I hate having
mine exposed to anything and will be looking for a case as soon as
I get to the big city stores. No way I could just put it in my purse with
all my junk and carry it around!! I guess I have learned the value of
a camera after not having one for so long. Big City Stores..here I come!!
GO OUT AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
