Well, after a long time of waiting, researching and frequently checking at many stores.... we purchased a digital camera tonight!!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited??? Now I will be able to post with ease pictures of all sorts, even if we are inside, or we are out and about!
We bought a Fujifilm FinePix Z1, which we have had our eyes on for quite some time and we got a really great deal on it! The price we paid for it was well worth the several months wait to get it.
Two of my favorite features of this model were:
1) 0.01 second shutter release time, meaning the pic gets taken immediately, instead of 5 seconds later when the kids look away and stop smiling.
2) reinforced glass screen and metal body = STRONG. With small children around, you never know what might happen, so I wanted something that would be durable.
Well, it's late and so tomorrow I will probably try to post some pics once the kids are awake and we figure out how to use the camera better. :)
Oh, wait. Fabio just took a picture of me. Maybe I'll try to post it, just for fun. :) Looks like he had it in black and white mode.
