I'm so excited I just had to share. And yes, it's bead-related because
that's the main purpose in my purchase. I FINALLY bought myself a digital
camera! I've been "shopping" since Xmas, but couldn't make up my mind. I
narrowed it down to 2 choices, but my first choice (the Fuji Finepix

S-602)
stayed elusively out of my preferred price range. So I opted for my 2nd
choice, the Olympus Camedia C-4000Z. It has all the right specs, including

a
great macro mode, and checks out as a good landscape camera too. Living in
sunny-day landscape central out here, that's almost as important to me as
shooting my beads and jewelry. Soooo, no more godawful scanner pix of my
beads! I loved regular photography and took a few courses in college. I've
pined for my own darkroom for years. Can't wait to get my hands on this
camera to play play play! LOL

I'll get to give it a nice test drive, too. Mike just called to propose a
long weekend road trip after the kids head back east. We're going to Bryce
Canyon, the north rim of the Grand Canyon, and looping around to Laughlin
Nevada. Carol, I'll wave north to you! G One of these days I swear I'm
gonna drive up to SLC.

Anyway, I won my toy on Ebay, just called in to give them my delivery

info,
and they said it will ship in 3 business days, so I should get it sometime
next week. Guess I should go make some new beads!

Congrats on the new camera, Karen.

I was just thinking this morning how much I use my camera and that it's paid
for itself over and over since I got it in Oct. I have a fuji, but not the
one you were looking at.

Have you used one before or always a scanner?

Thanks, everyone, for the happy thoughts about my camera-to-be. I'm waiting
eagerly for my UPS tracking number. LOL

Lori, (hiya!) you asked: Have you used one before or always a scanner?

I've tinkered with friend's digicams but never used one to shoot my beads.
I've used my "old fashioned" SLR to shoot slides for jurying though, so I
have a reasonable grip on picture setup. For a while I considered shooting
regular pix, having them processed onto a photo CD and using THEM for
auctions, but the delay and the expense was way beyond the time and cost for
my scanner. Hehe, I used to scan my beads at work, where they had a high
quality HP scanner. Way more fun than gossiping at lunch. G

One of these days, Lori, we should get together, since you live pretty
close. Do you ever go to the AZ SGB meetings??? I'm wondering if I've met
you without realizing it.
