The Unveiling


Here it is! My new camera. It is a Kodak EasyShare with 10.2 mega pixels and 3x optical zoom. I feel like a deal-finding maven because this one was $129.99 on sale for $79.97. It came with a case and a memory card included (tell me that's not standard, please!). It was about $15 more than a similar Olympus model at a different store, but I think I got a good deal since it came with extras (and the ad said it was worth $129.99!). Plus it came in stylish red! So, good deal, or did they see me coming? I'll post the first pics I took with it tomorrow. I would post them now, but I have to do some homework tonight, and I don't have time to play with it. :(

If you do movies with it, make sure you use a tripod. When I used to use my kodak digital for movies it was super shaky with any motion in the background like on a train or a waterfall in the background at the zoo and things like that. Run on sentence man, out.

Cool. It didn't come with a tripod, but I think I have one from my old camera that will work. Can you help me figure out how to find the pics I download onto my computer? Because they show up in my Kodak Application, but I can't find the pics when I want to upload to FB.

It just occurred to me, they might not be uploaded to my computer. They might be going off-site to a Kodak storage place. Because I'm doing a search by name for the pics, and they are nowhere to be found.

Nope, SD cards are not standard add-ons w/ Kodak. You did a great job!

I've had a Kodak digital pretty much since they launched & I've never, ever used the Kodak software. I upload directly onto my computer. Do you have a SD slot? If so just stick your card in there & the computer will upload them for you without a middleman.

I'm so psyched for you!!!

I figured it out! They were on my computer, just very well hidden! ;)

I don't have an SD slot on my Mac so I had to use the USB cable. But I have an SD card slot on my laptop. I won't d/l the software onto my laptop, but my Mac was being weird about it, so I thought it would work better with the software.

Yay me! I got an SD card with my inexpensive camera!

I'm still reserving judgment. I still don't trust the silly thing. But it IS pretty.

I hope you enjoy it!! Having a digital camera has awakened in me a real love for photography!!

BTW, did anyone notice that I took a picture of my camera with my computer? After I did it, it made me laugh. I am such a dork.
