Today I’d hoped to show you the budding excellence of my skinny mohair color block scarf, but alas it was not to be. My digital camera has been on the fritz for a month or so and I’d made the camera operable with scotch tape and the judicious use of finger pressure. Sure it was hard to take the picture and impossible to see the screen, but it worked dammit! Unfortunately, today it decided it was time to stop humoring me and stop working AT ALL. I know I need a new one, but wanted to hold off until money magically appeared in my pocket and I could get one. This did not happen before my trusty old Olympus bit the big pixel in the sky. It was very old and was certainly a camera among men…well you know what I mean.
I’ve done my research and printed out and studied the Consumer Reports comparison of ultra compact digital cameras. I knew it had to be small or I’d never take it anywhere and it should be pretty basic point and shoot since that’s all I really use it for. AND the smaller the better. I’d narrowed it down to the highly regarded Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z750 (7 MP) or the slightly smaller and ever so slightly less glowingly reviewed Casio EX-S600 (6 MP). I really couldn’t decide, they’re about the same price. One had better reviews but is bigger. One is tiny, has good reviews and is ORANGE! Guess which one will be coming to my house? Yup, went for form not function; orange not big…I compared prices on www.bizrate.com and www.pricegrabber.com and there is some variation, so check both sites for the best deal. I bought my camera from this place, they have a 21 day return policy so I’ll test fire it and see how I like it. Fingers crossed and bringing lunch to work for a few weeks.
Next time, knitting content. Promise.
