Shopping with a Digital Camera

One thing I really enjoy about the little camera we got in our Panasonic winnings is that I now have a great camera (10.1 mp) I can carry in my purse. Yes, I know that most phones take pictures now, but I haven't been very impressed with the photos. Plus, I admit that I never figured out how to get them out of the phone since we didn't pay for internet access on it.

Here are some photos that I recently discovered on the internal memory of my little camera (guess I didn't have a memory card in it that day). They aren't pictures of a major event in my life - just memories of shopping and goofing off with my daughter.

We found some cool masks at TJ Maxx. Rebecca needs one for a masquerade ball this year, so we took a picture to see if we could reproduce a similar design at home.

Next, we were really excited to find the Pink Panther diamond. I can't really imagine someone buying this, but we had recently seen the movie, so we really thought it was funny.

And finally, Rebecca sums up her thoughts:

Besides goofing off, it's really handy to use your camera to take pictures of furniture or artwork that you see and like (and can possibly duplicate cheaply at home). Rebecca has used the camera to take pictures of herself in a formal gown and then shown the photo to her Dad to make sure it passes his "modesty meter." And I never have to remember prices anymore - I just snap a photo! So far I've never used it to take random photos of people at Walmart like I've been seeing all over the internet, but I guess I'm missing an opportunity.

I've taken pictures out shopping several times. I do use the phone on my camera, though. I'm not good at getting them off my phone, but I can look at them on my phone later when I'm at home.
