New toys for the boys

Andrew received a box from his Gammy today and very much enjoyed playing with the contents. I had just as much fun taking pictures of him with my new digicam, and one turned out well enough for me to actually post. This is an unretouched image from my Konica Minolta Dimage X31, which is about the size of a deck of cards. I think at some point I’m going to want a camera that provides creative control in the form of manual exposure control, but I also wanted to try a subcompact that would be easily portable on the bike. My research led me to conclude that those two sets of cameras are pretty much disjoint. So I decided to go for the tiny one first and see how it goes.
