Even Cheesier

For those who couldn't figure out what I meant when I said my camera processes slow, let me demonstrate.

While trying to photograph one of my favorite, most adorable subjects, I patiently watch for a cute pose and quickly push the button to capture it. I get this:

It was a great picture when I started. I promise. But give the dog 2-3 full seconds and he's gonna move.

Then, I'm taking a picture of a new toy. A toy that can't move, is perfectly still. In between the time I press the button and the time my camera actually takes the picture, I have this:

or this...

Yes, that's partially my fault for doing anything while sitting in the floor with a dog in the house, but seriously, he was on the other side of the room when I took the picture, but the processing delay gave him time to come over and investigate!

Holy (non-topiary) cow, that'd DRIVE ME CRAZY. I'm very, very, very impatient with electronic equipment, and any delay makes me nuts.

I'd have to sell a few potatoes to get me a new camera.

you'd do a better job of just drawing a picture of your subject.

No potato-selling required, we've already made the plan and can budget for it in September, just got FIND one we want.

And clearly, Super mom, you've never seen me draw! I have a self portrait somewhere, I need to find it and post it.
