Remembering The Old Magic *UPDATE!!*

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 1, 2015, 7:08 PM
The other day I went to Target and was getting my prescription for ADHD pills. After I was finished I went back to the camera section like I do all of the time and I saw one of the cameras I had been researching for a while. I went back the next day to pick up the prescription and after I did that I went back to get the camera. It's actually a model that is on clearance now because it's a model that is a year and a half old already. However It's $100 off of what it was when it originally came off, and it's still a huuuuuuge upgrade for me. I bought a Panasonic DMC-FZ70. From using it the past two days I am very pleased with how it has operated. It's lightning fast, has great image quality, and is highly reliable. Going forward it would appear that I am going to phase out my Kodak's in favor of this camera.

I'm going to go on a bit of a nostalgic run for a moment, so if you want to read this part then you're in for a treat. If not then you aren't missing anything.
I got back to my house and put the new one next to my three others. I have the new one that I bought yesterday at the far left, then next to it is the red and peppy Kodak Pixpro that I won a year ago, Then on the right is a small Kodak bridge camera that I found in one of our rentals after we determined it was abandoned. I thought it would be better to hold onto it rather than it go into the trash. Then last is my baby, the Kodak Easyshare Z981. When I picked it up once again and looked over at the new camera I had some kind of flash back to 2009 and 2010 when I first was getting into photography... When I got my first camera a year earlier and how much I loved that one until I saw the new one. I looked up and saw the model on Kodak's website probably 6 months before I got it. I looked up pictures of it, reviews of it, specs, and pictures taken with it. I KNEW that was the camera that I wanted to have next. When my first camera met its untimely death I pushed to get the new one and I got it. This was back in the old times when my dad only got to see me on the weekends. I took the camera back to my moms house and had to wait until the next day to test it out for the first time. Those pictures are actually still on Deviantart. I took that camera with me practically everywhere I went for a long time and took pictures of more things than I could ever remember. There was a kind of magic that I was able to remember that I forgot all about until last night. It really was a trip thinking about it all. It's not something that I consider normal but I definitely have an attachment to that camera because of all that I have done with it. It went from being a glorified toy, to being a photography tool, to being a work camera, and then being scaled back to only being a photography camera. Today? Well it still works...something I pride myself on because of how much it has aged and all it has done. I'll try to always have it as a working camera but I believe its days of photography are in the final hours of the night.

The Panasonic does everything that is has been able to do and my Pixpro can do the work related stuff now. The Z981 is now going to be like a keepsake to me now. Something that I am always going to be able to have. I think that's how it will play out. For now I am just going to post some of the stuff below that I have done with it.

The first pictures I ever took with my Easyshare z981:

Well, looking towards the future, I have a pretty powerful camera that will have the torch handed to it. I can't wait to see what I will be able to do with it at my side.

I guess I am going to go back to doing my own thing. Hope you like the barrage of new and old pictures :D

UPDATE: So in an unexpected turn of events I will also now have a Canon Rebel EOS T2I to use. It's going to be almost as old as my old Kodak, but it's got very low milage (Under 3,000 pictures taken) and Ohhhhh my god it is amazing to use. I just have the stock lens that comes with it but it takes amazing macro photography from what I have seen so far. Ill post the first pictures with this camera below too!!
