    I Can Take Pictures Again!!!

    Boy, we sure do get spoiled don't we? I had my first digital camera (Fuji FinePix) for 6+ years and never really appreciated. That is not until it went on the blink. Suddenly, I wanted to photograph everything. Purely, psychological I'm sure. Well, instead of getting it fixed (and I'm still not getting rid of it just yet) we opted to buy a new one.

    The new camera is a Canon PowerShot A710 IS. It's actually a pretty cool little camera. It was a tough decision. I was just about sold on a Kodak EasyShare. Alas, the Canon won out.

    I've gotten as far as putting in batteries, loading the software to my computer, took a few pictures, and downloaded them. SEE...... (my Paisley Bauble Bag in process)

    I'm putting off reading the instructions just because it's a hassle. And to be perfectly honest, I never did read the instruction manual for the Fuji. And that's sad since I never really got to enjoy the full benefits from it. So, with this one I'm going to have to bite the bullet and do it. SHUCKS!

    I do like the way it takes close ups. I always had trouble with that before. I still have lighting issues to work out. Well, I guess, DUH...the manual will address those issues.

    Well, I guess I better get off the computer. As you can see, I have a lot of work yet to do on my bag. It's due on the 10th.

    Thank you for the input. I never really know how much stitching to do. I don't want it to be plain but sometimes I notice that it looks really full. I guess those things come in time, and with the time allowed. Always learning!!!

    Oh, I loved my Fuji. It was a great camera. I've seen you photos, you're lucky to still have yours. It does a great job, too.
