The last 12 months have been hard on cameras for me, both of them have broken,,, again and I refuse to pay another $250 for Nikon factory repair service. Today’s point and shoot cameras are superior in image quality to the ones of 5-8 years ago and a fraction of the cost. So it looks like I have to accept the fact that from now on digital cameras are disposable and if I get 2-3 years out of one, just be happy.
The issue I have with new electronic devices, cameras, phones etc is they do too much. They are simply overly featured and complicated to the point you need the carry the instruction manual with you at all times.
Anyway I’m looking forward too working with the new camera and it will be the one used for the blog images. The anti-shake feature should help produce sharp focused hand held images and I especially hope the video feature works well enough where I can post short videos of what I’m doing. We’ll see how that goes.
