I love having new toys!

Especially photographic type toys.

Yay plastic cameras!

After lusting and longing for a while, I finally broke down and spent some money on a Fuji Instax instant film camera.

It’s like a Polaroid, only a Fuji brand. You know, *coff coff* a financially solvent company?

Anyhow, this fabulous little Instax makes very small instant photographs, they are 2 x 3.25 inches in size.

I LOVE that I have an instant photo camera again!

It hearkens me back to my youth. One Christmas holiday, I got a Polaroid under the tree. Oh what a fabulous present!

I could spend my allowance on buying Polaroid film, which was fairly cheap back then, and then run around snapping photos of whatever I saw with *instant* gratification!

Ok, sure, these days digital cameras provide that instant look at the photo you just took, but there sure is nothing like the sound an instant camera makes after snapping a photo. The motor engages and it shoves out the cloudy photograph. Oh the sweet agony while you wait excitedly for it to develop.

Gah! I love it!

So as I do with every new camera I buy, I take it out of the box, ooh and ah over the features, load up the film or memory disk, and then turn it on and point it at the Feline.

She’s my test model for all new photo and video devices in the house.

Ah, the long suffering Feline….

And yet, she always manages to strike a pose. I really do think she’s getting better at this job of supermodel.

“I won’t get out of bed for less than two scoops of kibble.”

Such a Diva.


And yet…she sure knows how to work the camera.

As for me, I’m still giddy with the fabulous gadgety goodness of it all!!

    Thanks Kath! What photos cannot show is the evil and pure mischief behind those pretty eyes!

    Lovely kitty!
    What are your thoughts on the new Olympus Pen? Hype? Kick-A camera? I want one, but I am not a photographer person, so what do I know?

    L – Hi! I don't know about the Olympus Pen, but when I looked on Amazon, all of the cameras in that line get really good reviews.

    In a couple of my classes, people were using Olympus point and shoot cameras and I've been really amazed by the quality of the photos they were able to take.

    So in my minor and rather humble opinion, I don't think you can go wrong with an Olympus.

    Check reviews on Amazon and B&H Photo to see what folks are saying is my best advice.
