What the blog’s going on ??

Well, that last post WAS written on the train, using my new Dell Axim x50v. Admittedly, I’ve had it for about 2 months now – but been slack on the blog-front – no time to brag.

Anyway, thought I’d try out Pocket Blog, and worked OK the first time – hence the “hello from PDA” post. Always have to try a “hello world” !!

And so – I then wrote a lengthy post, but wouldn’t sync. Some error saying “couldn’t update”. *doh* I guess it’s a bit old now – last update was in 2002 – and needed to install the Microsoft eMbedded Visual Basic runtimes.

Dunno – will have to try a different “mobile blogger”. πŸ™‚

Anyone have recommedations or reviews of something that will work with blogger.com ??
(will have to ask Google as well)…

===================================================
New Camera ?!? All the pics on Intellimoblog have been taken with our first digital camera – Kodak CX7300, but only 3.2 mega-pixel, and video clips have no sound – and been getting frustrated with a slow shutter speed lately.

Especially with Cameron so active – some pics blur terribly. The ‘properties’ of the pics show that it’s only 1/60 – should be 1/90 at least – and my Canon EOS-500 SLR does up to 1/4000 (film camera).

And so, gone looking about for a better digital camera – but can’t really afford $1300 for a Canon EOS digital SLR.

But – have found the Canon S2 IS, with a very impressive list of features : 5.0 megapixel, movies with stereo sound, image stabiliser – and all the same manual modes as my beloved EOS-500 SLR. Shutter speed, aperture – and many new digital effects – like colour mapping, sepia, b&w.

And got 12x zoom – like have a 35-430 lens – my SLR is either 28-80 or 70-300…

** sub-note : Donna and I met on a camera course – in case you weren’t aware. And been wanting to get “back” into more serious photography

Will have to post some example pics – if the boss approves the purchase order. πŸ™‚
