New Camera

Greetings Earthlings. Today saw the purchase of a new camera. It's this model. I lusted after the cmos processor last year, but didn't want to pay the price for the camera. This year, Canon has cascaded their high end processor in to most of their point and shoots. The camera gives me 8X zoom. Good things come to those who wait.
Look how sharp the palm tree fronds are on the right side of the photo. That's hand held at arm's length in low light. Pretty groovy.

The highly saturated color setting.

When walking back to the RV, I stuck the camera up in the air and took this. Again, low light, very sharp palm fronds.

The Arizona state legislature never ceases to amaze me. A bill has made it out of committee that would allow college students to carry guns on campus. The university administration doesn't want this, the professors don't want this, the students don't want this, and the police don't want this. However, one nutbag legislator wants this. It's really creepy being in the dairy section of Walmart with someone packing heat. The thought of a campus full of young people whose frontal cortexes (corti?) have not fully matured wearing guns just boggles the mind.
Other than that, we have not much of interest to report.


  1. Love your new camera, & your pictures are great! I am happy to see palm trees & no snow.

    In other news, I try to avoid going to WalMart. Icky place.

  2. so, now what is your count of cameras up to? I only have 4 ;)

  3. Six! Two are semi-retired. I'm giving Jim one of my 780's. I really really like this camera.
