camera

Yes! we finally have a digital camera, with an instruction booklet more complicated than anything I've seen. I had to have it to hand when I inserted the software disc into the compter so I could follow the steps to open this, and click that.

It's a very intimidating little machine that seems to be able to do everything, including shooting movies.

I can't get used to the fact that there is no film in there; the entire concept is alien. How does this work?

I feel about it as I did about the first computer we got--afraid to touch anything for fear it would disappear into a black hole. Back then, I treated the Mac as if it were an elaborate typewriter--and I guess I still do!

Well, over the next few weeks I'll probably be posting my "art" photos. Beware!

Hallo from Australia,
Thankyou for the lovely comment you left on my Blog and please visit again.

I feel exactly the same about our camera! But I take it out and practice on my own and it delights me when I work aout another of it's tricks. The latest trick being 'zoom', very handy for taking pics of my baby nephew!

They are really easy to operate. The thing you have to remember is you can snap away as much as you like and that you can delete anything you don't like.

The only thing to learn really is how to plug the camera into the computer and put your photos there. That would be worth reading the manual about.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your photos on the blog

I always say that the digital camera changed my life. I love it. I bet you will as well.
