Old Ramsgate Carnival photos, LL Margate postcards
With the 2007 Carnival I took a camera, a Pentax dslr, and published the whole content of the camera's SD card to the internet as a series of linked pages - numbered links along the top of each page after you get to the first page this is the link to the photos
I am afraid my cut and paste attitude to the internet relates to having used computers as tools - perhaps misused is a better word, whatever it is, it gets more interesting (to me) as the pages get older.
Back to cameras for a bit, the one I normally carry around in my pocket at the moment is a Nikon Coolpix P90, which if you look on Ebay's sold and completed listings you can see sells for about £30.
The main word I would say that applies to cameras is compromise, size, weight, amount of light you can get in through the lens but for me the main factors are:- Cheap enough to leave lying around, will take photos that you can't take with a mobile phone, fits in my jacket pocket (they are large ones), overall user friendliness.
I did it again today, left the CD card in the laptop and didn't realise until I looked in the camera, the camera in this case is user friendly and has about 50MB of internal memory, so it stores the last pictures you took. The message is, would you like to move files between internal memory and SD card.
Probably not interesting to anyone else, but the photos I would have lost today which relate to architectural restoration in Canterbury
this is the link to the books we put out on Saturday
Advertising or just useful information that my local readers want - I don't really know
