My old faithful Kodak camera finally conked out for good last year. It was only a 4.2 megapixel camera but always took lovely, lovely shots. So we decided we needed a new camera, set a budget and got a little fujifilm finepix compact camera. Full of anticipation we have tried all the different modes. It's pants. Really, really, really, REALLY pants. The pictures are too overexposed, you can't focus properly with it, there's no view finder ( thought I could get used to not having one but I can't) and we hate it. We realised that it isn't about the megapixels - it's all about the lens. The Kodak had a really great lens hence the good pics.
So I started looking on ebay to see if there were any of the kodak camera that we had for sale. There were, all bids unsuccessful so in the end we have got a second hand Nikon D40 digital SLR. And it is justawesome! Just getting to grips with it but it's looking pretty fab so far.
