Say Cheese!

I bought myself a new digital camera recently for my travels. In the past, I’ve owned two different Sony digital cameras and have had issues with the display screens on both of them, and have even had to send them back to the factory for repair. Eventually Sony refused to continue repairing what I felt was a factory defect and should have been covered by the warrantee. But I digress.

I really wanted to talk about my new camera that I LOVE! I got the Cannon PowerShot 1100IS, which is one of the top selling cameras, and I can see why. It’s so slim and sleek, and the view screen is large. It’s easy and takes great pictures. It also shoots movies, and is a versatile all-around camera, perfect for me to shoot pictures of my family and travel adventures. I took a little time learning how to use it, and I also bought a bigger memory card for it that holds a lot of pictures.

Which brings me to another product that I am now using. I have so many photos on my computer now, that I worry about losing them before I can get hardcopy prints made for my albums, or even after I’ve printed them for that matter. After my experiences with Hurricane Katrina, I have seen first hand how tragic it can be to lose all of your family photos!

To keep them safe, I am using the Picture Keeper. It works basically like a flash drive that has software on it that makes a backup copy of all your picture files on your computer to keep them safe. Sure, I could take the time to burn them all onto a bunch of CD’s, but then I’d have to actually organize them, and keep doing it for every update. This thing works like my ipod and updates itself with the latest pictures every time I just plug it in. I don’t have to do anything. And it holds them all (up to 8000 pictures). Super easy, and no worries. (coupon code “momsminivan” will save 10% at their website).

Cherish your memories and keep them safe. Today’s technology makes it so easy, that there is almost no excuse!

Just wanted to say THANK YOU for your wonderful ideas! I have 3 little ones and we’re leaving tomorrow to drive 10 hours… And I have pneumonia! I think a lot of your ideas will help the trip go smoothly. Thanks for taking the time to post your ideas.
