the last picture show

Small green box at “Uncommon Objects”, Austin, Texas.

I think is the last picture from my 10-year old camera. Banjo Man surprised me with it one Christmas so I could take my own pictures at the local animal shelter.  I used to write a weekly pet adoption column and it was great fun to photograph the animals myself.

It is all my fault.  I dropped it from a stool at the Continental Club while watching HeyBale perform.  My purse, with my giant old beast of a camera inside, tipped over and fell.

Not the first time the camera has hit the floor.  I am nothing if not clumsy.  I mean, really clumsy.  The camera has survived much abuse.

So…does anyone have a suggestion for a new camera?  I’m reading online reviews and thought I had a good option–a Sony Cybershot DSC-WX150—but Sony has discontinued it, though it is still available on Amazon.  I’d like something compact this time.

And  under $300.

Suggestions?  Advice?  Do you love your camera?

Would I love your camera?

    I will e-mail banjo man Tomorrow. I have a great little camera and the new addition is better. I just finished watching a bunch of pictures from Africa that were spectacular.

  2. Thanks, Tom. I’ve read good things about the Sony Cybershot DSC-WX150. I’ll be researching for a couple of days but I can’t be without a camera here in Grandson Land!!!

    I love my Panasonic Lumix 10x optical zoom. Takes good photos…easy to download onto camera. Lots of settings or point and shoot.
