I'll get back to a proper post soon, and some visits; I've a few days off coming up. That'll be when it rains, probably.
For now though, I thought I'd share the new stuff with you.
The new camera; Fuji Finepix HS20
A bridge camera, with lots of features.
The important ones are the 30 times zoom lens, and the HD video capability. And compared to the Canon, it's as light as a feather.
It's taking a bit of getting used to, but seems Ok so far.
The other bit of new kit, is the computer.
A real beast! It didn't fit on my existing computer desk, so it has to sit on the floor.
It's made up of the following; although none of it means jack to me. I'm not techy minded.
Intel quad Core i7 processor, 3.2 GHz
ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 460 graphics card
Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO
6GB RAM memory
60GB SSD hard drive, for programmes and operating system
2TB Hard drive for video, pictures and documents
1TB Hard drive for music. I like a bit of rock now and then ;)
And Windows 7
My messy desk.
It's a pretty fast machine, but the leap from XP to 7, is taking a bit of getting used to.
I don't like the way it makes its own folders when I import picture and video files to where I want them to go, and a couple of other minor niggles, but I guess I'll get used to it in time.
Work is still quite hectic, with meetings and things. The end draws near, and I still ain't got a bloody clue what I'm going to do yet.
A most welcome day off work today, and the sun shone. I spent a few hours at my local lake, and now I should start to sort through the pictures. A few are on my other blog, and here's a couple for here:
These were with the Canon.
A shy Blackcap
A Tulip, from my garden
I'll catch up with everyone eventually, and in the meantime, enjoy whatever you are doing.
