The existing EXTRA-LAST in-house digital camera – which we can now shamefully reveal to be a Canon PowerShot 710 IS – has broken. Not totally broken but broken enough to be deemed technically broken, therefore some budget has been set aside to have it replaced during the 09/10 financial period.
This has come as quite a relief, as it wasn’t particularly good or aspirational, especially when being used by someone who’s more than happy to casually dismiss other people’s cameras as being shit without so much as reading a review or seeing what the photos look like.
The Samsung SL720 probably won’t be particularly great, but it’s been a good 18 months since we last thought about getting a new camera so we’ve got to start somewhere with the tireless research and the putting out of ‘feelers’. And just reading the reviews at Amazon feels like cheating, as does just getting the prettiest/cheapest one they’ve got in TESCO.
