Since my camera is worth…ehem…more than Jared’s car, I don’t tend to let the kids use it much. We were in need of a new point and shoot so I went for the opposite of my Mark II, something durable. Something that I could take to the beach and then rinse the sand off of. Something that would endure the occasional drop from the unsteady grip of a 3-year-old. So far I’m impressed. The images have been decent for a point and shoot, and it’s really nice to have a super tiny camera that I can slip into my pocket and bring on a canoe trip. Plus, c’mon, putting your camera under the faucet is just cool.
Winfield’s been enjoying taking pictures too. Here’s his self-portrait.
I told him to take pictures of things that he likes. I’m noticing a trend, weapons, books and portraits. That pretty much sums up his world.
