Cheap Cameras

JD is big-leggy…………

…and is also a happy shopper….

…and is bemused by silly road signs….

and is also lost…

These pictures were all taken with a digital camera which I bought for £35 at a time when the cheapest Canon or Pentax etc were around £200. It is basically a webcam to sit above the computer screen but can be used out and about as you can see.

Cheap doesn’t always mean bad and expensive isn’t always good.  The camera shown here is an updated version of the one I have.

    The most important element of any camera is the user. What irritates me about most compact and not a few SLRs are all the useless features.

    That said I do covet the Nikon D700 SLR (the D3 is just too expensive)

    I always like taking those shadow shots 🙂

    I didn’t finish it properly and got lost pressing all the wrong buttons. I was going to put a preamble before the pics and wanted to add this link after them-

    the camera shown here is an updated version of the one I have.

    must try harder next time
    sorry James.

    I have another even cheaper camera which is just a novelty key ring and cost £12. But it too delivers really good pictures. And then there is the pinhole camera I built….
    I’ll sort out a few more pictures soon.

    Pressing the wrong buttons or not you have a future in the blogosphere!

    Well done!

    JD – done but you know, you can go in whenever you want and change it, especially if it is an addendum. I know I said that the later editing adds a complete webpage to the database but a few edits is fine. Very few people can get it looking as they wish on the first publication, even with Preview facility.
