Hi Folks... since the weather has shifted here on PEI, I've been doing more playing outside in the garden than taking pretty knitty photographs... And Saturday I thought I would get out my Camera and at least try to take some decent shots - to no avail! I think my 6 year old camera has finally thrown in the towel. She will turn on, but the screen no longer shows an image, and nothing happens when you press the shutter button. She has served me well, but sadly, serves no longer!
So I guess now I'll have to start looking for a newer, better device! I'd like to stick to digital again (my Mom loves her film camera, but who has time for getting photos developed nowadays?) and I'd like something with a well rounded skill-set. Of course I take a lot of photos of macro-type items, fine details, close-up... but I also use this camera for vacation photos, family events, and general sillyness photos. Size used to be an important factor for me, but I don't think it will be as important this time. The last camera was bought when I was still a student, and wanted to be able to fit it inside a purse of some sort. Now I think I would be willing to sacrifice some of the convenience factors for some extra features (like extra attachable parts, etc)
So the hunt begins... Do you have a camera that you Love?
