What Camera?

At the moment I am a bit addicted to a website where I can display my photography. You can find me here: http://www.tartanink.deviantart.com and you’ll also find I’ve asked the same question there as I am here.
The thing is, it’s about time I got a new camera – I have to add, this won’t happen for a while due to £££ restrictions, but I’m laying the ground.

The problem is … what to get????
The camera I have is well over five years old now. It’s a Sony Cyber-shot with 7.2mp – the most mp I could get at the time without going into mega-money. But things have moved on and mobile phones even have more pixel capacity on their camera facilities now than this :omg:
Way back, when I had an ordinary SLR, I had a Canon, which I was happy with. But I also do wonder what a Nikon would be like – I’m swithering between the two to be honest and haven’t yet done near enough research into which I think I’d like. And to be honest, I’m a bit worried about understanding all the uber-technical stuff. On the DevArt site I have had lots of helpful information, but it’s always good to have more.
I am open to hear the pros and cons about not just Canon and Nikon but all of them to be honest. It’s a costly thing to get wrong. I did at one point hope that my old lenses would fit, but a reply and subsequent investigation has  put paid to that I am afraid.
So there we have it. As I say, I’m sure there’s plenty of time to put them all on trial, so your comments will be welcomed and taken on board. I’m sure there are plenty who swear by one brand or the other but it’ll be interesting to weigh them all up.  :laughing:
Thanks
:thumbsup:

It’s Been So Long

It’s been so long (as the title says) since I wrote on this blog that I feel I need to hang my head in shame. I probably need to revamp the idea of it, or the reason behind it, and look at what I want it to do. For now, I’m going to use it as a bit of a promotional tool.

I’ve been busy putting a website together for my husband, who is a decorator. There’s information on it as well as just the usual, what he does and contact details, so feel free to have a look. Also, we’re starting to sell products from the Dumfries and Galloway area as either one off pieces or at least products made in the region. We’re only in the embryonic stages of the retail side but if you have a look, please bookmark us if it looks interesting and come back because there will be more very soon.

Does the Flag Counter Work?

Just tried to add a flag counter, but don’t know how this works. It seems to have come up as a post to the site, but it would have been better in the sidebar with the widgets somewhere. I’m not very good at these ‘technical’ things. They look good on other people’s sites, but I suspect they know what they’re doing.

Have disregarded this blog in a long time. Should really get back on it and update stuff.  In the meantime – if you have a flagcounter or any other interesting device and would like to share it (ie let me know how they work) I’d be happy to hear about it.

ps – just noticed after posting this that a US flag had been added – thanks American person for having a look. This could be an interesting feature now – but I still want it on the side grrrr
