Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

New Digital Camera

Something pocket-able, but 4 or 5 MP that doesn’t break the bank. Mom also got one for Stefan, with matching 256MB SD cards, or 150 full-size pictures. I think 5MP blows up bigger than an 8.5×11 inch sheet of paper, so that is plenty enough quality for me. Breathing room for cropping, automatic red-eye removal, a bit faster shots for brightly lit action, a VERY bright flash, a timer with an option to take two pictures (serious and goofy?), as well as 3x optical zoom, macro mode, all the standards. It also has some automatic emailing stuff, so you could flag an image to “email to grandma” while you’re still at the family reunion. When you get home, I guess it just sends it right away. I’m not sure if it has Canon PictBridge for my printer, but I don’t really care. It would be nice to get the iPod connector for long-term backups if it is compatible.

I will post pictures to my flickr soon.
