theme thursday - gadget


Me with iphone. Daughter's friend with proper camera!

My newest gadget is my iphone.
I love it. It's beautiful (even though it doesn't support flash!!) and convenient and fits in my pocket and has a camera (of sorts) and the internet and ...
But sitting on the desk in front of me is my canon DSLR with pictures not yet downloaded from the memory card.
So, time to find the usb cable, connect and download and post some more pictures.
Time to get back to blogging too.

I love my iPhone too, though I have an older model. The cameras are surprisingly good for a phone! Pretty soon we won't need to carry a separate camera at all. :)

Hi Betty,

Mine is attached to me at the hip as anyone who knows me can tell you. It is almost as if I have to keep it within my eyesight or else I go into a panic. I have figured out that it is not the actual iPhone that sends me into a panic but it is the thought of losing all the info that it contains and that I would not want anyone to get a hold of. And all I have to do is put in a locking code and do I do that....noooooooo. I am too lazy to have to bother with unlocking it or forgetting the code in an emergency time. If I panic then how would I remember the code.

Oh my, what do they expect of me. Maybe I should have gotten the fingerprint code thingy for my laptop too. The thought of losing that also sends my brain into a panic attack. Geez, too much attachment to gadgets. Big sigh.

Hope you had a lot of fun with this weeks Theme Thursday, we do need our gadgets. Another big sigh.

God bless.

I often use my BlackBerry for fill-in photography when hauling - or hauling out - my big Nikon DSLR doesn't make sense. Sure, the quality and flexibility don't even come close. But someone once taught me that the best camera is the one you have with you at the moment you need to shoot.

Besides, my Nikon can't post to my blog, Twitter or Facebook from the field. The immediacy of a camera-enabled smartphone is remarkable.

Betty said...

Thank you all for your comments. Carmi, you're quite right, of course!

Off to visit your blogs now ...

I can't seem to leave my comment with Google!

Okay, it obviously worked that time. I'll try again.

Betty, you're back! Good to see you blogging once again. Maybe you can persuade Lettuce Eating to do the same. ;)

My husband has an iPhone and uses the camera on it quite a lot. My phone does not even text, so I have no choice but to lug my big camera around with me.

Thanks for stopping by!
