I have a new camera! I think hubby got tired of me complaining that my old camera took too long before shots, took lousy indoor photos and couldn't take photos of fireworks. Doesn't everyone need pictures of fireworks? He told me a while ago to figure out what I wanted and let him know what it was.
I have a few friends who are excellent photographers. They could take photos with an old Brownie and put most of us to shame. Some of them have expensive cameras with bells, whistles and doodads that I may, in a moment of weakness, desire but when I come out of that lusty stupor, I know I would never master or even attempt to use many of the features. I wasn't actively searching for a camera, but my eyes and ears were open.
While getting ready for bed one evening last week, QVC was on TV as it turned midnight and the new TSV (Today's Special Value) was announced. It was a camera. Eyes and ears turned to focus on the presentation. After the initial sales pitch, I was interested enough to ask Bill to watch.
The following day I researched the camera online. It seemed to fit my needs and the few negative reviews I found seemed to come from people whose skills and expectations were way beyond mine. I ordered it, received it and have played with it over the weekend. So far, so good.
The camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z981
I will share these test photos though.
Have a great day, and say Cheese!
