My one-year old camera is being repaired... for the second time in one year! I am highly dissapointed, to put it mildly. There is (still) a problem with the shutter because I never know whether or not the camera is going to switch on when I press the button... would have already gone out and bought a regular tiny camera but I love the features mine has...particularly macro and night scenes.

For the time being I am borrowing my son's, old but reliable! it's bulky, otherwise it would be perfect too. And the little green guy decided to wait for me in the garden until I got back out with the camera to get his portrait. He spent a long while sunbathing on top of my blooming euphorbia.

  6. I'd almost have missed him if you didn't mention him...I guess that's the idea! Good luck with your camera repairs...

  7. That guy is truly green!!!! Hope you get your camera back. I've not even learned the night stuff on my camera yet. I'm still figuring out how to do macro for indoor photos since the flash keeps going off, then it's too bright, the subject I'm trying to capture, and if I turn the flash off, then it's blurred. Got any pointers for me?

  8. I'm sorry you are still having camera problems but that's a great shot you got with your son's camera. Looks like the grasshopper posed for you.

  10. I hope you would be able to have the camera fixed. That euphorbia looks a bit different I guess there are a lot of varieties of that plant :)

  11. Isn't that GREAT!? I never find bugs in beautiful spots like that... I only find them on my walls and floors ... occasionally a squooshed on on the driveway - but I'm not photographing THAT! LOL!

  15. That is indeed not normal at all, you probably got one who was already "sick" at the beginning (like monday cars) I am very happy with my Sony Cyber shot T 300 the zoom is very good and I think all the rest too. I's sad when you loose confidence in your camera. Some shots you just can't do again. Grasshopper is cute
