So damn tired of lugging around a DSLR! All I want to do is take pics of places I been. The grand kids.
So....I went shopping for a pocket zoom digital camera and saw the Nikon S8100 at Best Buys. It was a open box deal so I saved 10%. Sweet!
Feels great in the hands! Takes great images. The battery seems to last quite awhile and charging it in the camera is no big deal really. Charges like our cell phone. Easy.
In video I'm not too impressed with the sound quality. But 9 out of 10 of my finished video projects I have deleted the original sound track and added music. I and my entire family all sound like Pee Wee Herman. So sound doesn't really matter to me.
