The End of an Era – Start of a New One

with 3 comments


About 5 years ago we bought an new camera.  We wanted to upgrade from our 2.1 MP to a 3.2 MP.   And we used it all the time.  All of the pictures you have seen on this blog so far were taken with that camera.  It captured two family weddings, several holidays, and 2 family vacations.  It helped us capture memories with Judith that are priceless.  This camera is also the one that helped me start to develop my love for photography.

Several months ago we noticed the camera was starting to show some wear.  Eventually we found that if we pounded it on the ground a few times – it would take another picture – maybe.  Finally the day came when no amount of pounding was going to revive the thing.  When the lense fell out the front – we decided the time had come.

Enter – the newest addition to the family.  The Samsung SL310W.  Consumer Reports current best buy for compact cameras.  13.6 MP baby!  I’m sure in another 5 years we will be laughing at the fact that we are excited about that.  But for now – we are so excited to have a new partner in capturing the memories that make life what it is.  Most importantly – this is the camera that will travel to Europe with us.  And we are confident it’s performance will prove to be outstanding.

Keep watching for all the new pics in the coming weeks – I’m sure I’ll be getting camera happy!
