Nikon Projector in a Camera

Nikon have just announced their new range of cameras coming out in the fall, and probably the most interesting one is this - it's integrated a projector into the camera itself, so you can display the photos on a wall or something for people to look at. Not sure how long the battery lasts if you use this, but would save the crowding round the lcd screen post picture taking (providing you were somewhere dark enough to see the projection)

Photo Geotagging

If this is real, I want it now (and it's just saved me a few pennies as I was thinking of buying a standalone gadgetthingamyjiggy to do this)

My Next Camera?

This new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 (I'm liking how they make these names so memorable and roll off the tongue) might just be my next camera - waterproof and shockproof, it'll work in the pool, on the beach and on the slopes. It also happens to shoot HD video. If the picture quality is up to scratch, it might just be a winner.

Denver Exotic Car Show

Ferrari, originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.

I managed to spend a couple of hours (rain free) down at the Denver Exotic Car show. Plenty of great cars there that could have easily kept me entertained for hours. I took a few photos (subtle understatement) and they're here.

I was going to tell you I met Mr Wallace there, but after the last photo he seems like he's gone publicity shy, so I'll keep it to myself.

New Camera

So after weeks/months of reviewing, deciding, changing my mind, being a good boy etc etc, I finally succumbed to the temptation of buying a new camera.

This one is a big step up from the last one - a Canon DSLR. Having survived on point and shoot cameras for all of my life so far, the array of buttons is kinda overwhelming, but luckily for me (and my sanity over the weekend) it has a fully automatic mode.

Hopefully my pictures will gradually improve over time - I spent all of last night reading the manual, so at least I got an idea of what each of the buttons do, although how that translates into what happens with a photo is still a bit of a mystery. So, I ordered a couple of books on Amazon to try and help me out - if anyone's got any recommendations then let me know.

So, two photos with this post - the top one is Fynn, who displays an unwavering excitement to all my new techie toys (I think she gets it from her mother), and below is Avery, who stopped by on Saturday to share some hotdogs.
