I got a small digital camera that can fit into my purse. I don’t want to rely on my phone camera when we’re out and about. It’s a Canon PowerShot A550 with 4x optical zoom and 7.1 mega pixels. I hooked it up to my TV, so the kids could see the pictures I’d taken at James’s drama play on Saturday (oh, wait, I forgot to post about that… pictures coming soon, maybe later today) and we checked out how big the picture could get on the TV without getting too pixellated. It was pretty good and I’m satisfied for now. Someday, I’ll be able to afford the Canon Rebel, but until then I’ll stick with this one for whenever shots and my film camera for the nice shots.
Oh, speaking of my film camera. This last roll of film has not a single photo of any of my children on it. It was dedicated to other things. I’ve used the last 10 or so shots on it to keep track of a flower growing in a pot on my window sill. I have 1 photo left on that roll of film and the flower should bloom anytime, so I’m saving it for that.
