psyche just kidding april fools not

So I bought a new point and shoot camera.  A real antique.  It's a Ricoh FF1.  So far, when the thing hits, it really hits.  However, the auto-focus appears to be the drunkest piece of equipment I've ever tried using.  It has a manual focus option, but it's basically like "guess the distance" and "guess if this works or not."  However I did receive a nice compliment at the Apple store on it last night so booyeah.  It's a pretty necklace if nothing else.  Plus look at these colors/weird optical effects:


Here's one where the focus worked, and then below what is this?  A tilt shift lens?
Seriously.  I can't figure this out.


These forest pictures I should have had a tripod.  One thing I'd like to do more of in the future is blurrier photos, from motion, but that would work better for pictures of people.  The forest is a pretty still place.  A "that one's on me" type deal.


Realized we haven't had any pictures of the dog lately.  Hey dog!  Thanks for waking the baby up from a 5 minute nap last night because someone was visiting downstairs.  Good move you mutt.  Otherwise you still tight.

This point and shoot camera has a hot shoe, which allows for an external flash to be attached, which is good fun for around the house.  It also folds in on itself, and is about the size of a pack of 100 length cigarettes.  If I can ever figure out how to use it we'll really be in business.  About that time it'll probably disintegrate, but whatevs.
