call HART crazy .. but

My camera is not .. that bad …

Olympus Stylus 300 3.2 MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom

… but every time I use it .. I wish I had a better one.

Case-in-Point … It was my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary yesterday and we had a big party on Sunday. One of the many jobs that I had .. was to take pictures of everybody who attended. On my camera, I can only get about 21 pictures at the optimal setting that I am comfortable. But, if you set the camera to take pictures at 640 x 480 .. you can get approximately 93 pictures. And, I took all of them – and went through two batteries!

My cousin James, on the other hand, has this really cool digital camera (12 megapixel) and also took many pictures .. about 30 .. but while my pictures were 640 x 480 .. all of his were 3072 x 2304! Listen .. I can stand 2 cm away from a mirror and look at my face – and then look at one of his pictures and see about 100 times more detail! It’s scary! I had to resize off of his pictures down to 1000 x 750 for the online album ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, on my own pictures – I also upped it to 1000 x 750. Now, his pictures did look better shrinking lots of DPI downwards .. than expanding low DPI upwards.

Yes. I need a new camera .. and I think I’m going to get this one:

Unfortunately, I’m still a cheap bastard and will be adding it on top of my new laptop purchase.
