New Camera

I have ordered a new camera for Mother's Day, it will be from my husband. I was wondering if anyone has one of these models, Kodak Z1012 IS. I have an older Kodak 5 megapixel camera that my brother got me for Christmas a few years ago, and it is great, but now that I'm retired, I hope to take more pictures, and probably do more cropping, so for that reason, and because I would like a longer zoom, I am upgrading. Also, I have a grandson (who by the way was born on my birthday, so is my birthday buddy) who is in the house too much, and I thought I would pass along my old camera to him, as he has an interest in photography. By getting a fairly early start (he is 12) maybe he will develop an interest that will get him out more and give him a creative outlet. I am giving it to him with the stipulation that he delves a bit and learns about photography from the ground up, apertures etc. He is home schooled, so my daughter is going to incorporate it into his lesson plans.

Such a wise and generous Grandmother you are! I think your plan to get him out of the house is both wise and wonderful amd his mom including it with school means she got HER wisdom from her mama:).

You go girl~

I look forward to seeing loads of wonderful photographs on your blog once you get the hang of your new camera. I'm sure your plan will work and your grandson will be tickled pink with his new camera.
