This camera is a Canon Sureshot something. Last years model because you could still get it with a viewfinder, which is very important to me for outside pics. It's just a point and shoot or whatever the phrase is. My "old" camera takes great closeups. Blows my new camera away. I think it has a special macro lens. It's a Sony Cyber something.... you can tell I just use them, I don't live and breath cameras, but I knew what they were when I bought them The Sony is about 8 years old and the only reason I don't use it anymore is because of lag time.... I would get too hungry waiting for the pic to snap

Thanks for the comp. I've finally gotten used to my new grill being nuclear hot and can cook a decent steak now without thinking, which is how I like to go through life anyway

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Pacanis, I like your comment about how we can tell that you don't live eat drink and sleep your camera. It's only for picture taking. I sat not long ago in the office of a certain buckster, hum, uh, Buckytom.
He showed me something he'd been working on fixing, his camera. There was a camera in a million pieces I think in a coffee cup. I said, "Bucky, that's why they sell new cameras. People don't fix things in 19 bazillion pieces when you can just buy a new one." I found that so funny to look at. He honestly wanted to fix that camera, hats off to the Buckster.................and to Pacanis for lovely dinner photos.

lol, lefse. i guess i'm a tinkerer. my dad had several watches that were expertly disassembled, and partially reassembled.

and - ahem, "honesty wanted to fix it?"...
i did get it working again, except the optics are out of focus from when it was dropped.

i just bought a new camera that takes excellent shots. a point and shoot that does fully atoumatic to fully manual. the sub-compact cameras, like the one i'm fixing, are too small for my hands. i didn't want or need a big slr, so i went for the canon powershot A720. it's an 8 megapixel camera with a 6x optical zoom.
the canon powershot A650 also got great reviews, at 12 megapixels (for $100 more), and i has a swivelling lcd display. i've found, using the swivel feature on my video camera, that kids love to pose for pictures when they can see themselves in the display.
Spring is finally here! I got so excited that I wet my plants...
