Day 310 of 365: Special Delivery!!
Gorgeous red sunset photo tonight with my new 14 mega-pixelHD Kodak!! It wasn't supposed to be delivered until tomorrow, but I spotted the delivery truck this morning and nearly pounced on the delivery man when he knocked on the door!
The 5 mega-pixel Kodak (which I have had since 2004) has been dropped one too many times and we decided that with little one on his way in December, it would be a good investment to get a new camera. The best part is we got it out of the catalog at a really decent price and can make small payments on it until I am back at work in September and we can just clear the balance.
One of my favourite features is that it does auto-stitching for panoramic shots...such as this:
Although, chances are you will have to click on the photo to see much detail. I wasn't going for anything with this one, just trying out the settings.
Ultimately I'm quite satisfied with the quality of photos this camera takes. I like that there are more manual options for people like me, who aren't always 'point-and-shoot' (amateur) photographers.
Yeah, Myst had to get in on the action as well and I couldn't resist.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
