If you have seen the last four posts on 42, it probably won’t be very dificult to guess.
We went to buy a new battery for our rather aging digital camera. It would not last long enough for two photos anymore. That is a Canon G2 and we have been very happy with it for years.
But I still remember with great affection my old Olympus OM2 SP. I bought that when a student and really enjoyed pretending to be a good photographer. Although the G2 has been very convenient I have not got the same pleasure from using it.
So now ready for this summer we have splashed out and gone for the dream. Another Canon but this time a digital SLR (EOS 350D), that follows recommendations from friends, several shop visits and a lot
of time on google. Jessops in Kettering were very helpful and also had a number of related good offers so we were able to get all set.
Lots of fun to come I hope. Already got three nice portraits which are better than anything I have bothered to get with the G2.
The size is also pretty good so it will fit in a handlebar bag on our tandem trike for the summer.
I am going to be experimenting with online photo sites, so many options it is hard to choose which to go for.
All (nice) advice welcomed
