My three adult children pitched in so I could buy a new Nikon camera to replace my 12-year-old Nikon that died last week.





One of my Sons-in-law gave me this:




Besides the gifts, it was a very satisfying day...…. 8)

Nice, cameras are a nice gift. Strange how many of us now use our mobile phone instead (and what a cottage industry the accessories for them has sprung up). Might get to the day where the sight of a camera by the young will inspire curiosity.

Very thoughtful gifts.

That kind of puts a twist on "Bringing a knife to a gun fight". Nice gifts.

Thanks for the kind words...

FWIW, IME cell phone cameras/pics, while handy to take, produce nowhere near the quality of pics taken with a good digi camera.

I haven't had good luck with Cannon pocket cameras, but the Nikon COOLPIX S-550 I bought after the Cannon failures lasted me quite a long time (and many, many pics) - about 17 years before it died.
