Ah digital photography, what an age to live in! Although I said I would prefer a single device that was a video camera, still camera, phone, music player, games machine, note taker, etc. well, it just ain’t happening yet.

Even the vaunted Sony PSP isn’t a phone. And doesn’t have a camera, despite the “photo” icon used in the ads (it can display photos, it can’t capture them).

So, with a new baby in da house, the time seemed right for a digital still camera. And it has a self portrait mode. Complete with flash. Surprise Ben!

Unfortunately due to a strange rattle in the camera, we will be returning it tomorrow. Hopefully Kmart have another in stock we can bring home, coz it was fun for the couple of minutes before I packed it all back in the box 🙂

and I know everyone wants more photos of Emma

  1. Kmart said all the cameras make that sound. Hope they didn’t base this conclusion by testing the camera we returned earlier—but the camera seems to work otherwise. Doesn’t recognise the memory card very well though… need to pop it out and back in every time!
