Here's where my stubborness really will be obvious . I own CanonA-620 Power-Shot digital 7.1 M.P. Camera
Well, you might add , why don't you buy a more powerful camera ? Because I don't want to spend another couple hundred bucks to get a certain function back . I bought this camera for two reasons .
One it just barely met the requirements for getting a hard copy picture re-printed in a mag .Two , It has a little screen 1-5/8"x1-1/4" on the back .This little bitty screen is the reason I bought this unit . I can sit the camera on a table top .
While on the table top I can set the screen for the picture angle I want , then adjust the camera to see that same angle and shoot away . Now , I have one picture taken that way that amazes everyone .
It's a picture with a blue , lightly cloudy background behind the Ship in the picture .The angle says it's being taken from the ship's motor - whaleboat or crew -launch as it approaches . The background happened to be my textured finished wall ! Of a ship that is now a museum !
This totally surprised me .The lighting turned out perfect as the ships side was partly in shadow .
That screen is the reason I won't buy new .Oh , I would love a 10 or 15 M.P. Camera . But to get that screen back I need to buy the camera body , then the lens assembly . I don't use the camera enough to justify the expense .
You see My back is like a chain reaction collision aftermath .So , I cannot bend around looking for the perfect shot and I am not a Proffessionall Photographer . I am just a tired , beat up , Old Crazy former floating , flying fool who built things , and flew things and I choose to keep both feet grounded .
I get down on knees for pictures . Can you say " get the walker please " . I find myself unable to do that ! ! So Canon Saved my life . Now if they would only do it again , in one piece that I can afford .
