On the morning that Jessica and I were leaving Brighton I decided I’d chronicle every step of the way. When we boarded the bus to Heathrow airport I was already whipping out my digital camera.
That’s when I saw that the LCD display was completely white except for the top right corner where I could just about discern a portion of the scene in front of the camera. Trying to use the camera without the LCD display felt like taking pictures with my eyes closed. Of course I could just use the old-fashioned viewfinder but that seems to be "off" in some way and the pictures never come out quite the way I actually compose them.
Time for a new camera.
Luckily, I happen to be in America where electronic items are far cheaper than in England. Generally, you can just swap the dollar sign for a pound sign when you’re comparing American and English prices.
It certainly seems to have a lot of powerful features but I think I’ll have to actually RTFM to get it to take pictures exactly as I want them.
I’ll have plenty of time and opportunity to test out the camera. I’m in Arizona now. The light is bright and the scenery is wide.
