Digital Camera's II

Treated myself to a new digital camera today. The battery is currently on charge. 

Not able to play with it untill its fully charged.
Got a good deal on it, complete with case and memory card from the local camera shop.

Typical as with most things today, only a printed quick start quide. The main manual all 130+ pages is on the 
CD-Rom that comes with it. You're not able to curl up in front of the fire and read a CD-Rom. :(
Camera is a Sony Cybershot W170. 10.1 Mega Pixel 28mm 5x optical zoom.

Digital Camera's

I've decided my old compact digital is getting too long in the tooth. It's only a 2.1 Mega Pixel and the battery packs have all stopped holding charge for very long. 

Think I'll be replacing it with one from the  Sony Cybershot range. Just been looking at them in the local camera shop. Nice big screen, and a 10 Mega Pixel sensor.

New Year

That's the end of 2008, had a good break over xmas. 

Too much eating and real ale - but that's what Christmas is about. :)
Anyway its been bloody cold what better than being in a nice warm pub. 
Thats my local "The Malt Shovel" to the left.

If you click on the image to enlarge it, you can see a cat stalking a bird on the roof line.

New Year's Eve

The week between Christmas Eve and today has flown by (funny how the time goes quicker when you're on holiday)
Still very cold - outside temperature -1.1 degrees centigrade.
