I asked Hubby if I could have a decent camera for my birthday a couple of years ago and he bought me Nikon Coolpix A10.
For the snapshots I take, it’s great as it has both a digital and optical zoom, though if I use either or the flash it really drains the batteries.
Saying that though, I think I’ve managed to get some pretty good pictures of the ducks and geese on the lake, not to mention some lovely ones of the beach.
Gone are the days of the little 126 or 110 cartridge cameras or the 35mm roll films that you had to get developed. It would have cost me an arm and a leg to do that with my NZ trip, as I took over a thousand photographs!
