I learned the hard way, that you definitely shouldn't let your 2 year old run around 'taking pictures' with your digital camera...
About 2 weeks ago I was sitting at the computer typing away, and was holding Anna...Jacob was playing but got tired soon after. To keep him entertained for a few minutes, I thought it would be harmless to let him take pictures of his sister...
Somehow he dropped the camera while the lens was out, and when I picked it up it wouldn't go back in...and it was ruined!
I felt bad for letting him play with it, and as much as I was sad that we no longer had a camera, it wasn't his fault.
Randy tried to fix it, and had no luck.
After almost 2 weeks of being 'camera-less' I have to say I don't know how I survived without it! When you have young children, they're always doing funny, or cute things...so I have been looking forward to a new camera. Randy did the research (as always :)) And we decided to go w/ another Sony camera. Partly because we have the battery and charger which will still work with this camera. He bought it from Amazon, and so far so good. We just got it yesterday, it's a Sony cyber-shot. Our previous digital camera was a 7.2 megapixel camera, and this one is a 12.1. This camera has so many cool features, I love it! I'm still learning to use some of the features, since we just got it yesterday...but I am very impressed with the whole package. It's very user-friendly, and it looks sleek and nice.
I thought I'd post some of the pics Jacob took before the other camera died...and a couple of pics I took yesterday while out for a walk w/ Jacob and Anna, with the new camera :)
A fun new Hobby!
