Who here has a digital camera?

I don't know how I lived before I got my first one. It was a low megapixel camera, maybe a 3 or something. It took really blurry photos and had no LCD screen.

But I loved it. And It loved me. (And not in a kinky way either except for that first night after we got it, after all we had to try out all the little features, didn't we? But I defend my position, it was love, not lust)

After a while we realized that out wee little camera was not up to the task of recording the lives of our little family and we upgraded to a bigger camera. And I do mean big. It's amazing around home, but the camera bag for it is as big as a diaper bag for triplets. On a week long vacation. In the Sahara desert.

I have taken so many videos with the camera that the video mode is starting to go on us. Le Sigh. We are going to look into having it serviced after Christmas, and I hope it does not cost an arm and a leg!

In the back of my mind, I have been thinking about getting another camera. One that I can slip in my purse and sneak pictures of weirdos when I am around town. One I can take outside while playing with the kids and have it fit in my coat pocket so I can have my hand s free.

Im not willing to go lower on megapixels, but man I would love a smaller one. (see guys, size doesn't matter!)

HP has a sleek little 6 megapixel camera out on the market, AND a photo printer for it. You don't need to go thru the computer at all with it! Rock on!


One thing I love about digital photography is how clear a picture is. I love zooming in, just to see how clear I can get it. I have taken some awesome "zoom in" shots in the last year.

This post is sponsored by HP, and besides getting paid to write this post, HP is giving away six cameras to the post they love the most. The camera up for grabs is the exact kind I have been looking at, great specks and the perfect size. My fingers and toes are crossed, y'all cross yours too!

Nothing against HP, but I would buy a Canon Digital Elph. Tiny, easy to use, and fantastic pictures. We got one in October before going to Vegas and we love it.
