How many pictures do you take on an average day? How about on a day when you're with family and friends? Do you use your cell phone for most of these shots?
I was - using my cell phone to take pictures of things that mattered. A trip to Italy. My daughters high school graduation. A family gathering where certain members wouldn't be seen at the next family gathering.
Looking at those pictures on smaller devices is fine. But putting them into any kind of print version, large or small, doesn't work. The quality isn't good enough.
So I invested in a small digital camera. I felt almost archaic going into Best Buy. Who buys a small digital camera anymore? The selection was surprisingly good and I found what I was looking for. Something small.
When the sales person explained it had "idiot and super idiot settings" I was sold. What a difference it's made in the pictures I take.
