I finally received my new digital camera in the mail today.

(preparing the piano.. aka “did I leave my panties here last night?”)

Why does it seem like whenever I get an electronic device on the internet, it is bulky and huge. You know, like that brick of a phone I used to lug around.

It’s quite sensitive with tons of auto controls of every possible situation, museums (no flash, sound, etc..), snow, parties, bukkake parties… the works. I dislike that it doesn’t have many manual controls.

It’s funny. I remember with my Pentax camera, it was love at first sight. the canon Elph that I had before was quite comfortable in my hands, also. This one is taking some time. I like shooting at ISO 400 on manual for the most part. Otherwise, I haven’t found the equivalent of messing with the white balance, like I liked doing with my last one. (My poor old digital camera is held together by scotch tape. Every time I recharge the batteries, I replace the tape.)

My boyfriend has a Fujifilm camera that is cute enough and compact, but shoots at too high of an ISO. I am not impressed with the auto settings of Fuji cameras.

I need to experiment with ways of capturing indoor light better.

I am trying to incorporate an interesting “photo of the day” here. Keep a look out!

So, I have a credit card. I shouldn’t, but I do. And with some promotions and regular “shopping sprees,” in the last handful of years (when did I get this, in 2004? 2003? 2005?) I accumulated crazy amount of points. I was still like 20,000 points away from a nintendo Wii, understand. (because I was snatch that shit up in a second) However, I did have enough points to acquire something. I could have gotten a 16gb ipod touch, nintendo DS lite, digital camera, and various other smaller things (like other ipod items, bedding, etc..) My dilemma was, do I get a 12mp camera? Or a lesser 7mp camera with less features AND a DS lite. In the end I decided for the camera, because I was afraid of my time wittling away on the DS lite. I am beginning to regret this choice, though.

Ryan: I would so upgrade my ipod to the touch.
Ryan: Just saying, I would get the ipod touch.

I don’t know why I wasn’t enamored with the ipod touch. I just think of it as a ripoff, although if it did have a camera (even a lesser 2mp or so) I would have gotten that.

OH whatever! Now I have to wait… wait wait wait for another two weeks. My last digital camera, the Pentax Optio S is held together by tape. LITERALLY. The batteries are also drained, so it wasn’t worth taking it to Japan … or anywhere for that matter.

Of course I am drooling over the new macbooks and macbook pros. I have been waiting for this moment for a while… I was planning on getting a new laptop, but I can no longer afford it. If it was a few months ago before the summer, it would have been a different story. Maybe before my job.

And in an unrelated note: I think this MUJI notebook is dandy too, and I am going to go out and get one.

Oh yeah, and I bought a dress from the Old Navy children’s section. o.O No laughing. I bought a fat kid’s dress.
