Sadly, the camera which I was given as a retirement present nearly five years ago has not been behaving itself for some time and I finally made the decision that I just had to get a new one. I don't use it a huge amount, but I like to have it with me always just in case, and I really didn't want to manage without one. I have an ancient mobile phone which does take photographs but they're really dreadful quality. So I gritted my teeth and went out yesterday to buy a new one.
I didn't take long to make up my mind. I knew that I wanted the least delay time from pushing the button to the photograph being taken and I had a budget, so I just went for the best I could get for my money.
Isn't the new one dinky?
