Mom's New Toy


Have been absent for awhile as I play with, uh learn about, my new camera.  When asked what I wanted for Mother's Day I put in my request complete with adds for where such item was on sale just to help them along. Sadly my old reliable Sony Cybershot camera was on it's last pics. It had been freezing up and in general not functioning well. Can't complain this trusty little camera has lasted over 6 years, been to China twice, Florida for our DisneyWorld vacation, Hawaii, numerous Disney trips and countless daily as well as special occasions have been captured by this little gem.

Now I will admit that I am not the most tech savvy person, so point and click is just fine for me.  This new camera does have a lot of other features that I am determined to learn, so that means I have to actually read the instructions!!  Not something I'm good about doing. 

To start I have been really impressed with how much clearer my pictures are. 16 megapixels over my old camera's 6 really are great for more clarity.  This camera is more sensitive to my inadvertent movements so I will have to get better at being a bit steadier, especially when using the zoom. And the zoom is so superior.  Took these photos of the bunnies munching my plants (little stinkers)  from a good 10 feet away. Was surprised at what I was able to capture.

Still have a lot of features other than the basics that I will make a point to learn.  Managed to download these just fine, so there's progress. Didn't even have to ask the kids how to do this !!!!

Will be back in bloggy mode again here soon. Bye for now.



  1. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog and yes a good camera makes a hell of a difference.

    1. : ) One day I will actually learn to use a "real" camera where I make choices of settings, but for now this works well.

  2. I think this is the camera my daughter wants. I'm glad to hear you like it so much!

    1. Hi Cheri,
      I'm still getting used to it but so far am really pleased. Nice of you to "stop by" and leave a comment! : ) Thanks

  3. Great pics, Lynda! The bunny pics almost look like paintings. A friend gave me her old point & shoot and there was a setting that took care of the little shake we can have here and there.
