DC #2

I'm a little surprised that I suddenly got lazy with keeping up with this blog. Especially how I was able to maintain it for a few days straight... :(

Anyways, continuing from the last post, the second digital camera, also the current one I have, is my Nikon Coolpix 7900. Why did I switch cameras to this one? Well, my dad's friend's son works for Nikon, so he gave me/my dad the camera as a thank you present. Of course the Olympus was supposed to be my dad's, so the Nikon ended up being an early birthday present to me during senior year of high school.

Mine still has that sticker with the camera features on it :P

As nice of a camera it is, I wish there were some features that it had. These include: being able to change ISO or shutter speed or aperture, better macro zoom, and blurriness. There are digital cameras (non-SLR) that have the feature to change ISO or shutter speed or aperture, and yet mine lacks it, so it'll always be at ISO 400 and at f4. I tend to shoot a lot of nature or still life shots, but crappy zoom tends to make just a bout 99% of the pictures useless. Blurriness, this is more of shutter speed and such, but my camera has issues taking pictures at night. I guess I could try getting a work out by lugging my tripod around with me... or not.

Beyond the above issues, this camera has gone through a lot of picture taking moments. And 2 damages... bit of scratching due to drop, and the battery compartment lid doesn't close because one part of the plastic has broken off. Yup, it's gone through quite a bit of love.
