My new toy....

August 10, 2010
Yeoh & Muranaka, Ala Moana Office

On the day of the photowalk at the zoo, Jalna introduced me to Joel Cosseboom (an awesome photographer, you should check out his stuff on flickr or his website!!), and I asked him about the waterproof point and shoot that his son was using. I didn't want to spend a lot of money because I don't spend a lot of time in the water, so he told me about a great deal at Adorama Camera, this Fuji only cost me $99! It's a 10MP camera, waterproof up to 3 meters. Thanks for the tip Joel!
Cute yah?

I normally hate point and shoots because of the really bad white balance and the delay in the flash, but I decided to take it to work today and play with it...I made my co-workers take pictures with me, most of them were good sports and didn't mind. Please excuse the off-centering, these are all raise-my-arm-in-the-air-and-smile-at-the-camera self-portraits...

With a little help from photoshop (well, maybe a lot of help) they didn't turn out too bad. I can't wait to take it in the water!

First I'd like you to meet my new boyfriend...doesn't he look like one of those obake guys on scary Japanese movies????
Karen...she's lucky I didn't post the first picture we took!
Haunani and me...the two True Blood "Trubies"...too bad Toni wasn't around for this pic!
Anne...sorry, caught her while she was eating lunch!

Cool the color. The photos are good too. I use a point and shoot camera. I wouldn't know what to do with a big fancy one. LOL!!

yah the color is kinda neat, I didn't have a choice on which color they were gonna send me, maybe only the green ones were on sale. Your pictures turn out nice, maybe I gotta figure out the settings on this thing!
