I shop for Christmas gifts, I look for gifts that are fun, lasting, and can be
enjoyed throughout the year. Digital cameras fit the bill. I own two. My
Fuji A850 with 8.1 megapixel digital camera was given to me two years ago as a
Christmas gift; my new one, a GE A950 with 9.1 megapixel, was given to us in
October for our 37th wedding anniversary. Now that we own two digital cameras,
Poppy is also taking digital photos. He especially enjoys taking photos of our
grandchildren. I love taking pictures of just about everything, but my
favorites use natural light and shadows. It just adds something extra to the
favorite of the two cameras is the newer one, the GE digital camera. What I
love about it is its ease of use, the smile setting (won’t take picture until
subject smiles), and also the anti-blink setting (won’t take the photo if
subject blinks). Two other features that I get excited over are the continuous
shots (love taking grandchildren’s photo on this setting) and the panoramic
settings great for the beach, parks, parades, landscapes or large family
pictures. For the price (currently $64.99, Amazon.com), it
is the best digital camera.
