I am doing my best to convince the wife, that life without a camera is well...I want one anyhow. Hey, where is that camera of yours you have been going to get for the past three years?

Umm. I have cameraphobia, Larry. It's now an official disorder. I'm going to start a nonprofit charitable organization to raise money for fellow sufferers. Cameraphobias like me depend on the generous photographic support of those not afflicted by this terrible illness. Hilarious!

How about getting an IPad? It has a wonderful camera with photoshop capabilities and you can post straight to this Forum or Facebook without jumping through hoops?
......as Ursula slinks quietly away as not to get smacked by the talented photographers here......

Yeah, annie get your guns...or Ipad with a camera and you can do editing from the garden!
After almost an hour of updating my computer, updating my wife's phone, updating Itunes, getting re-verified,
getting password approved, having my fingerprints, taken and my blood analyzed...well a lot of stuff, I finally was able to directly download photos from the Iphone to my computer, directly into photo gallery. That is great because for some reason all the phone photos load on this site sideways if not corrected.

Do you remember when you used to slap in a roll of film, snap a few pics, take them to the drugstore, get them back and pass them around? Seems like so much easier....

My neighbor's phone has been dead for a week. I still keep my old landline. She is "with it" and modern and improved and has only a cell phone. So now she has to walk over to my house to use the phone. She's amazed that it sounds so clear. I told her I can talk to India and it sounds like next door. she did not believe me. Ah, progress.

Slap in a roll of film, take your pictures and spend a fortune to have it developed. No, thank you kindly! Smiling
I take thousands of pictures and delete a ton of them to pick the best one, I can't possibly imagine to have to pay for the whole lot.

We got rid of the land line, but I still have an old flip phone I can almost hear on. You would think the smart phones would start with the premise that the phone part was the most important, but no I think for smart phones that is way down the list of priorities. I swore I would not get rid of the land line, but the economy called one day and I made the mistake of answering.

I still have a landline and an IPhone. I find we do a lot more texting on our smart phones nowadays than using any type of phone to actually talk.

Yes, I remember very well going down to pick up the developed film and wondering what they were photos of and why out of a roll of 36 I only had four photos. I always liked they didn't charge for the ones you couldn't make out. I had some very cheap envelopes I picked up.
Most cell phones these days you can call next door and it sounds like your calling India! Rolling on the floor laughing
Really I did like the landline way better, but the digital photography is much easier and you get it instantly and can often save shots with photo editing you would never have been able to see with the film cameras. Just like most people don't know how to use 90 percent of their phones capabilities and apps, you can ignore 90 percent of the new do everything cameras and just point and shot with automatic modes. It won't be right every time, but it will look pretty darn good most of the time. Plus if you don't like them, just delete them, no processing fees at all, take 10 pics if you need to, no extra cost. Unlike phones, I do think cameras are getting better and better at what they are actually suppose to do, and that is take pictures.

My camera is also on life support, I also need a new one soon, I am trying to wait and see if something nice and affordable comes up at Costco, since I still have a reward voucher I can use...so in the meantime, I use my mobile phone's camera, then upload the photos to Google Drive to save the space on my phone and downloaded later to my laptop. Then I can tweak some photo aspects with Picasa or pzap. I am just a point and click user, though I do need to get a good close-up at times of the subject.

I do like the new cameras that are now wifi equipped..that will save a lot of time in downloading later.

Have long abandoned landlines, but we still have a home phone using magicjack thankfully they have improved that device so I do not have to attach the device to my laptop. These days, I enjoy using the chat services with Viber; using texting if other party is not on Viber. I also keep a google voice number, that is the number I often give out to third party. That way I protect my home number and mobile phone from telemarketers Smiling .
