I have no camera, thus no pics to show.

A Kodak “Easy Share” CX6330 Digital Zoom. 3.1Mega Pixels, 4x’s Digital Zoom, 7 Picture Modes, Approx. $200.00.

5 Years Old, don’t believe it’s available any more. Also has a “Sandisk” 128MB Digital Card good for at least 200 Pictures, about $65.00.


PS: I have 4 other “Pro” Types “Nikon” “Pentax” Etc. Up in the closet gathering dust …LOL..

Motorola Droid phone.
Just got the Sony Nex 7 but I am using it as a point and click since I don’t know how to use it.

I am hopping to take a photography class someday.

I use my phone (Droid RAZR), but my wife uses her Nikon DSLR. I’ve got to take good care of her and make sure she has good equipment.

iPhone 5S. My two larger digital cameras (a Lumix and Nikon) now both go unused. The 5S provides remarkable clarity, color balance, low light performance and is so easy to use in both the shop and for my finished box setting shots (see: that I no longer go to the bigger cameras at all. I’ve also used the iPhone to create two “photo documentaries” (ebooks) on box making and used the iPhone camera exclusively. Many digital cameras will do the job, but I have found the iPhone more than satisfactory.

It can also be extended in function using the OlloClip lenses and a simple tripod attachment, though handy, I don’t really use these often.

An older Kodak Z model easy share. Sometimes the pics are good, sometimes they’re not.

Nikon coolpix until Santa brought us both Samsung Exhibits for Christmas. I’ll probably be using the Nikon for now until I can figure out how to put the pics from the phone in an upright manner on here.

The thing of it is, I LOVE my new phone. When a customer explains their desires to me (renovation contractor), I can pull up my entire photo gallery and find something I’ve done before, hand them the phone and say “do you mean something like this?”. Instant gratification.
