Well, my digital camera (Casio Exilim) had been acting up for a while and many of my pictures actually never turned out right (had a funny pink neon glow around all brighter spots, especially during day time photography) so I finally decided to get a new digital camera.
Since Circuit City (where I had my old camera insured – great!) closed we buy our electronics at Best Buy. Not that I ever thought that Circuit City had better service than Best Buy, I think we just always went there because of their lower prices. And since we mostly knew what we wanted I didn’t mind the mediocre service.
I actually like Best Buy’s service – at least they always offer their help and make sure you’re finding what you need. So after talking to one of the sales associates at Best Buy we finally decided to buy the Sony Cyber Shot 12.1 Mega Pixels camera. It has a wide angle lens which was very important to me and the test pictures we took at the store turned out great. Another great feature: a smile detector. I am sure I will have some fun with that 🙂
I have a good feeling about this new companion of mine. I think the camera will be of great help to finish my 365 project – 133 days to go, BTW. I will still use my old Casio camera for the more “dangerous” projects like going to the beach or a night out in downtown Orlando.
So here is one more shot taken with my old camera – from now on most pictures will be taken with my new Sony or, of course, my beloved Canon Eos Rebel XT.
