I have a new camera, having dropped my old one in Texas. It wasn’t the first time I dropped it, but it was the last.
I was so sad.
I went to Best Buy and tried out different cameras recommended by those of you who read this blog, but the smaller cameras were hard for my gnarled fingers to manage. I settled on a Canon Power Shot SX500 IS. It had a great grip and wasn’t enormous. The reviews were good.
Now I’m trying to learn how to use it. And trying to decide whether or not to send it back. The auto-focus is tricky. I am reading the manual over and over again. But I have a book to finish and reading camera manuals is way down on my List of Things To Do.
