RE: Digitals for flowers?

Hi Melody,

As a non-digital camera owner/user, the big advantage seems to me to be the
immediate feedback.  Not only can you tell almost immediately what the
picture looks like, but you don't have to wait for film developing to access
your photos.  It always takes me forever to get the film to be developed,
especially since I take mostly slides.

My mom has a digital camera and a Mac, I can ask her what she has.  I have a
feeling it won't matter what the camera is, it'll just require an interface
cable and maybe software on the machine to handle pictures, but I'm not
sure.  She bought her camera when they visited and we hooked it up to the TV
for a picture show of their trip to Banff - that was cool.

And do any of you computer whizzes out there have a guess as to what
type of digital camera might be compatible with Macs? Also, is there an
advantage, besides saving time, over a digital camera vs. simply
scanning in photos from a regular camera?

RE: [CHAT]Digitals for flowers?<br><br><br>> HI Sally Ann<br>><br>> We
bought our camera specifically to take on a trip out of the county
and<br>we<br>> love it. It is so easy to use, and yet have about a
zillion other<br>settings<br>> if you want to get really technical. I
use it more as a point and shoot<br>> than anything, adjusting to a
macro-focus and turning the flash off of<br>auto<br>> for certain shots.
Anyway- we chose our because it is small, compact, the<br>> is a cover
that slides over the lens to protect it when not in use (and<br>the<br>>
cover is integrally attached to the camera so there is no chance of
losing<br>> it), and best of all

it takes double A batteries (so you don't have to<br>deal<br>> with
adapters for recharging proprietary battery packs when overseas
etc).<br>> Just make sure you get super high capacity NiMH batteries to
use<br>regularly-<br>> they last the longest. The ones we use are 1800s
and were about $30<br>> w/charger. Oh, the camera is an Olympus D-550
zoom. We found the best<br>> prices at CompUSA last year when we bought
it.<br>> Hope this helps.<br>> Theresa<br>><br>> -----Original
