Yesterday, we saw an ad in the newspaper that KMart had a 12MP GE-A1250 digital camera on sale for $69.95. That's an affordable price for a point-and-shoot camera that I can put in my purse or daypack. I looked up product comments on the internet and it seemed like its battery life was OK. We have learned that if you see something and want it... buy it. In the Caribbean we have limited quantities and quite often if you go back later in the week its gone. If you snooze, you lose.
We decided to take the noon bus up to KMart (have lunch at Wendy's first) and see if they had them in stock. The employees in the electronics department didn't know where the cameras were but I found them in a display case that was covered in papers and things.
Bought it. Set it up. Took the first picture...

It will be nice having a camera that I can carry again. Our DSLR is a super camera but too much to lug about everyday for a possible, impromptu photo op.
So far, so good :)
