I have been wanting a point and shoot camera to keep in my purse.
Caroline has a newish Kodak EasyShare that I bought her.
She is very generous and doesn't mind me carrying it around/using it but it doesn't have a viewfinder.
That drives me batty.
You can't go from a Canon Rebel to a screen on the back easily.
I am hard-wired to put the camera against my face!!
Before I got my Rebel, I used a Kodak EasyShare 5.0 mp that I absolutely loved.
I got incredible shots with my little camera.
The only thing I didn't get was "the blur factor."
You know...the blur behind the person that gives it depth? I wanted that bad.
But as much as I love (and I do love it) my Rebel, the darn thing is heavy!
I have back pain from tense muscles and I need something small to carry around.
So long story longer...tonight I got online and decided I would see if anyone still sold my 5 mp camera.
The one I loved.
The last time I tried to use it was about 2 years ago. I turned it on and it was dead.
I went and got it out of my nightstand drawer to see what model it was.
On a whim, I put in some fresh batteries and IT STILL WORKS!!!!!!!!
I don't know if it died and came back to life, was just worn out or what but it works!!!!
I was actually in the process of bidding for one like it on Ebay.
Can you believe it?
I hope it keeps working.
Now I have to get another memory card for my daughter because she'll have a fit when she finds out I took mine back. LOL And some more rechargeable batteries too.
I'm so happy!
