I am using two very different devices to take the pictures and movie clips i'll be posting here:
First, My Nikon Coolpix 8800 "flagship of Nikon's Coolpix series". This camera would have never entered my family's life unless I agreed to go along with the advice of my younger tech-freak brother to put my family's future in the hand of Nikon's lens makers, and if Nikon then the flagship of Nikon's Coolpix series: the Coolpix 8800. It was also not available in Israel back then and had to be brought by my dear cousin from new York.
This camera features an 8.0 megapixel effective CCD (3,264 x 2,448-pixels) and a 10x Optical (35-350mm) Nikkor lens, with Nikon's Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. It has a high resolution (235,000 pixel) electronic viewfinder (EVF) for through-the-lens viewing and a 1.8" vari-angle color LCD monitor. You can read more about it in this great review on steves-digicams.com
Here is a night shot of my Coolpix using my razr camera:
The only problem with the Coolpix 8800 is its weight and size, which brings me to the second device I use: my Motorola RAZR V3x mobile phone offers pretty cool 2 MP, 1600x1200 pixels, video, flash and even secondary video call VGA camera... the video quality is pretty poor I admit but the availability of the camera makes it worthwhile.
