such a good little girl
I seem to have a little problem. Camera's in my hand might just as well jump out a window as to be the poor recipients of an owner like me. Several years ago, when digital camera's were relatively new and expensive, I bought my hubby one for his birthday. We loved it, and I dropped it. It never seemed to work right again. Next, we bought a second digital camera. Prices had come down so we got a nicer one with a few more bells and whistles. I really liked this camera, it took good pictures, and was easy to use. I left it in the rain on top of our Barbecue...for several days....all the unsaved pictures were lost..waaaaa! Guilt and sadness overcame me and I decided to start using disposable camera's for a while. I did this for about a year and then hubby took pity on me and bought me a not to expensive digital camera that I have really liked. It fit in my purse and served the purpose I wanted it to. I was glad he hadn't spent a whole lot of money on it because, lets be honest, we both knew it may not last long.

Well, that was a little over a year ago and I was finding myself longing for a little better quality camera. However, since the one I was using wasn't really broken (yet) I didn't really think I should spend the money on a new upgraded version. I am going to need a new dishwasher soon, we started planning the family summer get away and decided we needed to be saving more to prepare for that. No, I didn't need a new camera.

Last Friday morning I logged on to the computer to pay some bills. My 3 year old daughter was sitting next to me playing. A few minutes into bill paying I heard her say....Ooh Noo, it broke. Hmm, not a good sentence to come out of a small child's innocent little mouth. I looked down to see the camera in her hands and the lens protruding at a funny angle. She had broken the lens. It would no longer retract. The camera kept saying error and would not take a picture. It was caput. Darn It. I guess I have to buy a new camera after all.

I am sooo excited. It is being delivered tomorrow. This is what I got. I thought, for a moment, about getting a SLR but I don't really need that. I would like to take a photography class this year and if I do maybe we can splurge at Christmas because, lets be realistic, by Christmas this one will have probably suffered a cruel death as well.

Well, I can't solve all your problems, but I learned a trick from a photographer about how to hold your camera. You must have a strap on your camera (this is mandatory, many of them do have them or you can buy a semi-case that has one). Put this strap around your wrist, twist it around a couple times. When you do this, if you accidentally drop it or are pushed by someone, the camera will just unwind a little bit and it is much less likely that you will drop it. This is also a deterrant for theft of cameras (esp. if you are a tourist).
I have a film SLR and I keep watching the price of the digital SLR in hopes it will go down further. There are a lot of other things I need more--but my current digital is just a crummy part of my video camera. *sigh*
Enjoy your new one!
