Another View From 17E

This week I traveled to Folsom and back. I sat in seat 17E both ways.

Heading south, I took some pictures. Heading north, it was too dark so I talked to the Kiwi next sitting to me. Unfortunately, the engine noise was too loud for reasonable conversation so I retreated back to my book.

I discovered I need another camera. The last P&S quit not long ago because it got junk somewhere inside its lens.  I replaced it with a similar P&S we had sitting around. It takes good pictures — some of the time. Other times, it doesn’t focus, even when set in landscape mode. There’s no warning and it’s impossible to tell from its little screen. Melissa told me it was dropped on its lens and came apart. So I’m back to shopping for a camera.

My needs are simple:

  • Small enough to fit in my shirt pocket
  • Able to focus on infinity (landscape mode)
  • Cheap

Any recommendations?
