My new little toy



Wow, well this week has been a bit of hard work. What with not having a kitchen, the builders being around until 7.30 in the evening and me loosing my craft room I don't seem to have time to do anything but work and sleep. We have just found out as well that the kitchen is going to be delayed two whole weeks :( not happy news.

But on a brighter note I wanted to show you my new little toy/treat/whatever you want to call it. I have been thinking about a new point and shoot for a while now as I have an SLR but my little everyday camera is very old and very battered. However I have a bit of a thing for cameras so my search got a bit extensive and I ended up with this little beauty on the right.


It's a Fuji Finepix X20 and I think the thing that drew me to it the most was it's styling, look at it, so similar to my first manual SLR (which took real film!), it's even made of aluminium in stead of plastic so it feels really sturdy. 

I had real toss up between one with a really good aparture priority or one with a super zoom. I eventually decided, as my SLR has a decent enough zoom, I should go for the aparture which the other is lacking in. I am really glad I did I love shooting pics with this thing. It's a good job I bought a big handbag though, it's not really handbag sized!! 


You can see the aparture at work above in a picture I took at the wedding in Scotland. It even supports a wifi SD card so I can transfer pics immediately to my phone and ipad for instant blogging to you lot. 

I just need to make a pretty case for it now so I can chuck it in my handbag without ruining it. I just need to think about how to work around that awkward lens! 

Have an awesome weekend everybody xx
