A Walk Through Jamaica Pond.
Well, not actually through the pond, but more like around it.
Here's the first 'roll' of pictures I took with my new Canon GL2 digital camera. I know I'm late to the digital picture party, but I've been happy with my old film camera for a long time.
If I knew how much fun it is to take digital photos vs. film, I'd have jumped on this bandwagon a long time ago. Back in the old days, I had a 35mm Minolta SRT 101 camera. It was a tank. Mostly made of metal. I was the yearbook photographer in High School and a newspaper photographer in college.
After that, I mostly took family pictures. At any family affair, I was the designated photogtrapher.
So now I have this new camera. It is amazing. It's really made to take movies, but also has a digital still camera built in.
I've got it programmed to make a 'click' sound when I press the shutter.
Depending on the resolution, you can take up to almost 100 pictures. the cool thing is that you don't have to worry about wasting film. It's always in the back of your mind. Should I take this photo, or should I wait for a better shot. Well, with digital, you can take as many shots as you like and keep the ones you want.
The 100x digital zoom on this camera is amazing. Allowed me to get some really cool shots.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
