These photos are from my first digital camera, the Fujifilm FinePix S7000.  I purchased the S7000 in 2004 and always enjoyed shooting with it.  It definitely had some speed problems, the shutter delay was awful and the battery life was short.  It was also slow to start up and had no burst mode.  The EVF was hard to manually focus but the auto focus seemed fine.  Still, the camera delivered some fine files and I liked the freedom digital photography had to offer.  The camera even shoots RAW files but I didn’t use it much because I didn’t have a RAW editor.  Both of these photos were shot on my first outing with the camera.  BTW, I still have it and it still works fine.

      Thanks, Anita. I had been getting email with photos for years before I got the camera and I was feeling a little left out. This was a good camera to start with but I think I have shot my last file on it.

    My very first digital camera, a 2 MP Canon lasted about one outing – I was so disappointed in what I saw that I took it back to Mike’s Camera and bought a Pentax 105SW film camera which, incidentally, was my last film camera. The first digital camera that I really like was a Lumix DMC-FZ5. Great little camera – and yep, I still have it.

      I liked the Lumix cameras, too. There were a lot of choices at the time and not as much standardization as we know today. The Fujifilm used a new-at-the-time XD card, which are gone now.

    Thanks, Linda. The light is always perfect (if sometimes dim) at the conservatory in St. Paul where these were shot. It’s one place I really miss since I moved to Webster.
