Because I am a technological moron, I simply cannot get the quality out of my camera that I would like. In the hands of someone adept at this sort of thing, it should turn out some pretty fantastic photos. But you have to go all manual – like with it and adjust light settings, etc. First, I don’t have time to do all that when taking pictures of a squirmy bunch of kids. Second, I lack the mental acumen to do so in the first place. Seriously, this is why I am a painter and a knitter – I cannot get my brain to understand the concept of working with the settings on my camera to magically make them come together into a working whole. I tried. I played with the thing, took several pictures of Oona on various settings and not one of them looks good.
So instead I am going to drool over the very expensive Canon EOS I want. I’m going to have to take applications for a sugar daddy, though. Rats.
