New Camera

Postby AstroGoat760 » Sat Jan 02, 2010 12:17 am

Well, I have finally gotten a suitable replacement for my ailing Fujifilm 4.1 MP camera, a 10.2 MP Kodak C180 camera, which was the second new camera over the last few days. We had originally bought a Nikon Coolpix 8.1 MP camera. That one had a hard time in taking pictures that was not blurry / grainy / yellowish. We tried all the settings, and the Nikon refused to take pictures unless it was in Auto mode.

So we took the Nikon back and got a more powerful Kodak that was a display model for less.

As for the old Fujifilm camera, it is gone. It's last photos were of it being smashed with a hammer. What was left was run over with the truck, and then burned.

The new camera:

The following photos were taken with the Nikon that proved to be a pain in the Haggis to use, and did not like to focus most of the time either. No problems noted with the new Kodak C180, though.

We sure had fun, didn't we?.....

Would this be covered by the warranty?

Here are some photos taken with the new Kodak today, to show that it works fine (and the snow on the ground that fell last night):

Work on the pickle vat car, and on putting together the parts from Coastal Engineering together into a car is in progress, but nothing worth taking pictures of right now.

Actually, that hurts like hell with the hernias (and everything else wrong with me at this time), but it is a lot less painful than using a shovels. With the city that I live in refusing to plow the area where I live at, this is what I have to do to get my car and van out each time it snows. My land lord has a few plow equipped trucks, but they are often overloaded by the snow levels, so my neighbors are reliant on me to help dig them out.

It's hard to believe that Dorothy (the tractor in the pictures) is 40 years old now.

BTW, wouldn't one camera's demise being documented by another camera be considered cannibalism?

Snow! I'm surprised! According to your descriptions of Connecticut shouldn't there be a lake of fire close by?
