Cameras I Have Loved

This camera took great pictures but you had know how to adjust the settings. It used film that cost to have developed

I have always liked cameras, my first one was in college, it was a Kodak Pony 135. This was in the early 1950’s and it made good pictures. It used film so I had to be selective and not just shoot everything I saw, it could get expensive. It had a big flash gun, a bar with a shinny reflector and it used bulbs. No fun to carry around for snap shots.

I used this one for 10 years, it was heavy. It made great pictures but they were expensive to develop and you didn’t know if you got the shot until later~

When Dan and I married, he had a nice Cannon .35mm with a light meter and flash. It made great pictures but again the film had to be developed. (the worst camera I ever knew of was the Kodak Instamatic, that and the Polaroid,  they took horrible pictures, I never had either of those) 

Sony made good pictures on floppy discs so was inexpensive to use. You could check each shot on the screen as you went along.

Then came the great digital cameras! Shoot all day, view them on the computer, find the best ones and print them. I could run them through Adobe Photoshop and fix any minor flaws~(trimming fat hips, flattening bulging stomachs, softening bags and sags).

The Minolta was my first fine digital camera, a hand-me-down~ it made excellent portraits and snapshots

The Canon EOS makes the best portraits, it was another hand me down gift~

My first digitals I had were high end models, someone gave me their Minolta and later a Cannon EOS.  I have a bounce flash that shoots the flash on the ceiling, it  lightens the room and doesn’t flatten the face like  a ‘straight on flash’. It leaves all the nice shading and features on a face. These are truly fine portrait cameras. 

A nice little  camera fits right into my hand, it is a comfortable one to hold. Great pictures~

This is the last camera I will ever need, it makes excellent pictures, is the smallest of all, and easiest to use.

I bought the neat looking Canon PowerShot A540 and have loved it. Then the little Cannon PowerShot 300 HS came out and this may be my last camera ever. I don’t think this one can be beat. It is very small 2″X3″ and flat. It seldom needs to flash, it makes perfect pictures in low light. I have used it for most of my blog pictures.  I enjoy setting up for the blog pictures every day. Sometimes  I cook, take the pictures and then find someone to give the food to. I don’t need a pound of pralines~ Anyway, taking pictures is a great hobby in itself.

my sweet loving little Missy, all she ever needed was to be close~

I like pictures of my dogs most of all~
