Point & Shoot == Frustration

So Anna has a new camera. Based on her reaction to my constant bogarting of the device in question, she probably won’t really consider it hers until my Canon 10D returns from the shop.

But I don’t think she need worry much more about it, because I’ve decided I don’t much like the camera. I couldn’t figure out where it had decided to focus. I couldn’t figure out where it was getting its exposure readings from. I really couldn’t make it go at all.

Fully two thirds of the photos I took while on our trip to Vermont looked just fine in the LCD, but look like crap when I view them on my PowerBook. A few of these crummy photos could be rescued for use on Newburyportion because shrunk down they still look sharp, but in one case where I was photographing some flowers, absolutely nothing is in focus.

I suspect this is just a matter of getting accustomed to the device. Maybe even reading the users manual a bit. But I don’t think I’ll have the opportunity to use the device much in the future, so what’s the point?
