The Camera Has Arrived!


The new digital camera finally arrived Friday afternoon. As many of you know, SWMBO broke here parent's digital camera (the one we had been using). So, when we bought them a replacement, we purchased one for us also.

The one we went with was an Olympus Stylus 750.

For some reason we never received a shipping transaction number and never heard back from Olympus. Being a little paranoid about buying electronics over the Internet I decided to contact them. Not sure why, but I just couldn't get them to answer any of my e-mails. I couldn't even get them to answer the phone!!

I felt there was no other choice but going through PayPal resolution service.

Turns out there had been a glitch in the order they missed. The camera we ordered was listed as "in stock", but was in fact on back order. Since they knew we weren't happy campers (it had been 10 days since the order was placed) they upgraded us to a 760 without any up-charge.

Here it is!

Looks a lot like the original 750 we ordered, but this puppy has more pixels as well as several other features.

All in all, we are happy with the camera, but a little disappointed in the customer service department with Olympus. It's interesting how fast they can ask for their money, and get it, yet drag their feet to help when there's a problem.

The picture quality isn't too shabby if I do say so myself!

But then again, it could just be the subject matter.

Izzy found a nice place to snuggle up into while we started a preemptive strike on our spring cleaning.

Speaking of spring cleaning...

I pooped out too and SWMBO decided to play with the new camera also.

Unfortunately, this did not last long.

I agree, the pics are turning out great.

I was able to play with it some more today, so be watching the site!

Yea...our animals seem to keep me in line. I wish I had had the camera with me earlier. I was doing some work in the yard and Izzy & BooBoo were both supervising.
