First lasting snow and a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7
I was thinking that I would like to have a digital camera that would easily fit into a pocket. I have some film cameras that do so, however sometimes I wanted some of the instant gratification that digital can offer. So figured that if I looked for a camera that had been out for a couple of years I might get a good deal on a quality camera. I have noticed that with digital people seem to want the latest thing so perfectly good cameras lose a lot of value in a short time.
So after doing some research and finding a good price I settled on the DSC-TX7. It looks like the camera should be able to make decent prints up to at least 8X10 and it is very small. I also like that its telephoto starts at 25mm and is made by Carl Zeiss. I especially like that the telephoto does not stick out from the camera body. So far because of the weather I have only done a few test pictures and I think it will suit my needs.
So far two posts in the new year. I am going to make an attempt to post something photographic every day for a while. Usually I think too much about what I could post and end up not posting anything. So for a while I believe I will try just posting without thinking things out too much and see what happens.
