My Newest Toy

When we bought our new mattress (a tempur-pedic that you know I’ve been gushing over if you follow me on twitter), it was part of a promotion that came with a free television. Only they didn’t actually give you the television – they gave you a gift card so you could buy a television. We don’t need any more tvs so we decided to use our gift card for a much needed camera upgrade.

At first I thought we might put in some of our own money and get a really nice DSLR camera. But then I realized that we don’t really know how to use one of those and we should probably stick to a point and shoot. The gift card was to a rather small South Florida chain so we were a little limited. Ultimately, we decided on a Sony CyberShot.

And so far, I am in love. I haven’t played with all the features yet, but let’s look at a few pictures, shall we?

Sweep Panorama Mode (like the Taylor Swift commercial):

Indian Rocks Beach

It had to be really small to fit on here, but trust me, it’s awesome.

Macro shots (I have never had a camera handle these well):


Pet Mode:


Beach Mode:

Food Mode:


And finally, Book Mode (no there isn’t really a book mode, but I like taking pictures of my books):


It’s also supposed to take great low light shots and I despise using a flash, but I haven’t had a chance to test it out yet. I’m super excited to have my new toy with me next week in New York for BEA.

So what do you guys think?
