Yet another new camera

Remember that time I bought "the most durable digital camera in the world" and I managed to break it in 4 days? Good times.

I called Olympus tech support, which was a complete joke. My support guy was about as helpful as a 4 year old giving me algebra pointers. You know how the camera just came out 2 weeks ago? I think I was the first person to ever call in with a problem.

So I went to the store where I bought it and I toyed with the idea of yelling and screaming (as my friends put it, "You're American. You're supposed to be loud and obnoxious. Use that.") but I thought I'd have more success if I was nice to them. I smiled, showed off my broken Olympus Stylus 770 SW, and gave them the sad puppy dog eyes until they gave me a new camera and a new warranty card.

The camera takes great pictures. You can go check out the Aruba page to see some new pictures (that I took with this new camera). I put them at the beginning of the slide show for you. Enjoy.

New Camera and New York

Remember that time I bought a brand new Pentax Optio W20 in January to replace the one that broke after 3 months of usage? And then the new one that I bought stopped working in February?

So I went back to the store and they won't replace it. I have to send it in to Pentax to have them repair it. So instead of sending it in and waiting for them to send it back again, I just bought another new camera.

I bought the new Olympus Stylus 770 SW. It's been on the market for 2 weeks. It claims to be the most durable digital camera in the world. It's waterproof up to 10 meters (33 feet), shockproof up to 5 feet (if I drop it), freezeproof to 10 below Celsius (so I can take it snowboarding), and crushproof up to 220 pounds. I am extremely excited to have a new underwater camera that is not a Pentax, since I haven't had the best of luck with them. I'll try it out soon and let you know how it works.

Also, I put up a few pictures of New York City. It is by no means extensive. These are just a few random shots I took when I was home for Christmas. Enjoy.

I'm working on Mexico right now. They'll be up soon.

I know it's been a while. I don't know what you know already, so here's everything I've got on the site up to date:




You can click on any of those cities to go directly to that slide show.
I also put up a list of FAQs that you may or may not find interesting.

I'm still working on the website construction itself to make it easier to navigate and easier for you to find pictures you want to see. If you have any ideas on what you think would make it better, let me know.
