I have always loved taking pictures. I was a manicurist and then a cosmetologist in college and owned a salon for a while after that (I know I look young - I eat lots of yogurt - lol), so I took a lot of photos of nails and hairstyles, etc. I haven't purchased a new camera since 2000. That one was a Minolta QTsi. 35mm. Not digital or anything. Then my dad, who loves gadgets, got himself a new digital camera and gave me his old one. It was an HP. One of the older ones. Well, one of the three kids - any one of them is good for it - found a way to break the little door that holds in the batteries. I love free stuff - so I was annoyed to say the least. So I started using my husband's digital camera, which was older than the HP! It gave out a few days ago, and these days, you can't be an agent without a digital camera! he got me a Sony Alpha 100K. I haven't used it yet, but I am anticipating great photos. Anyone have one or know anyone who uses one?
