Early Birthday

My birthday is not until June, but having no camera is no soup for me, so I replaced my deceased camera with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P150. I took the picture above this post with the camera and I love it. Not in an if-i-had-not-met-Hope-I-might-marry-it kind of way of course, but you know what I mean. It is so great it can even take self portraits, which you can see in the photos section. And it doesn’t eat batteries, it savors them like a piece of hard candy. Also, it has a manual mode which does not give a great amount of control over aperature or focus, but lets me be pretty specific about the shutter speed. In all honesty, it’s a point an click so I’m not really sure how much manual focusing I would have done and the aperature range is not that great on small cameras like this anyway, so only being able to choose between the extremes is good enough for me. I mainly just wanted the shutter speed and iso control so I could play with light effects, especially at night. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a great take-me-everywhere camera.

    I still love my Nikon Coolpix 5400. Not as many megapixels but pretty flippin’ sweet when it comes to versatility. I LOVE your website Ryan.
