#35 -- DONE!!!!!

When I did this post, I totally forgot that I had included buying a new camera on my 101 Things list.  Since I have already informed the blog world that I BOUGHT a new camera, I thought I would use this opportunity to tell you what I think about my Nikon Coolpix S8100 so far:


1.  The zoom is AH-MAZING!!!!!  It has a 10X Optical Zoom and that makes it about 7 times better than my last camera.  Yesterday, we had tickets to the Titans game wayyyyyyyy up in the nosebleeds, and I was still able to get this picture:
How cool is that??????
2.  It is RED!!!!!  I love the fact that it's not the same ole black or silver...mainly because it's much easier to spot and there's not as much of a chance of getting it confused with someone else's.  However, it might also have something to do with the fact that red is one of my favorite colors.  =)

3.  The night settings allow me to take pictures like this:
And this:

And this:


1.  I'm not a big fan of the wrist strap because it's too loose.  However, I think this problem can be solved by switching out the wrist strap on my old camera.

2.  The flash is on the top of the camera and it pops up when it's necessary.  The problem with this is that if you are holding the camera on the top, then when the flash tries to pop out, it doesn't work.  I'll just have to get used to this, and I'm sure it will be fine.

3.  It just seems to be a bit more fragile than my last camera...however, that may be because it cost a lot more and is quite a bit nicer.  Again, I'm sure this will get easier to deal with as well.

All-in-all, it's a FABULOUS camera!  I am soooooo happy I bought it!
