Not a Food Post…My New Gadget

I’ve complained quite a few times about my Treo’s camera. While it may be fine for snapping quick cute shots when walking the dogs, in low light situations and for shooting close-up, it’s awful. I have one other digital camera, a Fuji S1 Pro I bought years ago, and it is great. Takes fantastic shots. The only problem is that it’s big, really big. Not only is this digital SLR a pain to lug around, it’s not exactly inconspicuous whipping it out in a fine dining establishment.

So, I decided to splurge on a new toy. Pictured here is the new Contax i4R, a beautiful 4 megapixel camera with a Zeiss lens that’s smaller than a pack of cigarettes. It has a great macro setting and you can set your own white balance. Here, for example, under halogen lighting, is a picture taken on the Contax of my Treo.
