“Wow Lord, you did all of this just for our enjoyment? Thank you!”
Over 70% of my pictures are of the sky and clouds. We have some awesome sunsets here.
I use a little Nikon Coolpix L6. I like it because it’s small, and I can tuck it in my purse. We bought it before Christmas last year. The one downside is that is the delay when I shoot a photo. It flashes about 5 times and then captures the photo. I miss a lot of good shots with my grand dogs and candid shoots I would have captured if there were less delay. My son has the same camera but not the same issue and he tells me I need a larger memory card. One more thing to add to my list of things to do before Christmas.
One other minor issue, the flash is too bright, causing some overexposure. Is there a way to adjust this? Please give me some feedback. I know I have some great photographers popping over here now and again.
My DH has a Cannon camcorder/camera and it doesn’t seem to have my delay problems. He can also zoom in close (35X optical zoom) and it has a remote photo control. We love this feature, especially when taking family photos – no rushing to get back in the picture before the camera goes off. We can also adjust the screen so we can see how it will look before we snap it with the remote. This camera is new and we are still learning all the features. We haven’t figured out how to download video yet. Thank God for our son, who helps us motivate through some of this technology.
What type of camera are you using for Christmas photos this year? Do you think a memory card will solve my delay problem?
